    For those advanced users willing to search for a newer AMD-signed (i.e. Provider: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.)

    Solved Win 8 AMD Switchable Graphics FAQ

    @denmmx, After double-checking the above, I noticed that this HP Pavilion g6-1360er Win8 support page lists 2 drivers: SP59147 (AMD Catalyst driver, mentioned many times before in this post/thread) SP59149 (Intel HD Graphics 9.17.10.2857, probably AMD-signed - download here) Well, this is...

    @whys0s3ri0us, Hmmm...no display drivers posted from HP...must be a G-Series thing (no pun intended). According to the specs, your notebook is not Switchable Graphics type, so it should be supported by the latest AMD Catalyst Beta (13.3 Beta3) or older AMD-only driver. Shouldn't be...

    @Jaime, ALL, I know that I referred you to SP59850 directly to enable Switchable Graphics capability; typically I would also install the latest AMD Catalyst Beta to enable any performance enhancements (i.e. gaming fixes). You should try adding (installing after) the latest Catalyst Beta or the...

    Solved Win 8 AMD Switchable Graphics FAQ

    @jeremy33662, You still have Windows 7 working with Switchable Graphics, no? What are the details for the Intel driver that is working in Win7? What SP is it from, and what dates and versions are on that Intel driver? Best chance of success would be to troubleshoot step-by-step from a new...

    @sunnyx12x21x, Your Radeon is supported in Win7 by HP SoftPaq SP57353 (based on Catalyst 12.2). Typically you would control which card is being used by using the ATI Catalyst Control Center, commonly known as AMD/ATI CCC. This allows you to choose which card is used for which applications or...

    @jeremy33662, Just looked at your YouTube video...what are the PCI Hardware IDs for the "Unknown Device" that you now have in Windows 8? If they say VEN_8086, then that means that they correspond to an Intel component...most likely the Intel HD Graphics card. Also, what happens when you run...

    @kyselevajco, Your model (HP ProBook 4740s) also has Windows 8 drivers from HP here (SP59130 for Intel, SP59143 for AMD). I would try the following: Remove the ATI/AMD components by running the ATI Catalyst Install Manager in Express Uninstall Mode (i.e. Win+W, Programs and Features, select...
