Hello, i recently upgraded my windows 7 to windows 8 professional 64bit and after that my primary display adapter became intel graphics 3000 HD and my other display adapter amd radeon 7470 HD shown code 43 error. I rolled back the intel display adapter, which now is Intel HD Graphics Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.2) and installed catalyst control center which made the code 43 error disappear.
I went to check it again and i noticed that now I have intel graphics 3000 HD again and no error on my the amd one.


However if i go to screen resolution, on advanced settings i notice my laptop is still not using the amd graphic card.
How do i change it?

Go to Device Manager
(Start-enter "Device Manager" and press enter) and go to your graphics card. Do you have an roll back driver option?

so, your laptop uses switchable graphics huh?
from 714's link to your laptop software downloads, download the AMD driver as it should install the switchable graphics driver.
