I have a dual graphics card on my HP Laptop, running a Mobility Radeon 4200 and 5200 card.Just installed Windows 8 and it either runs very slowly or goes to a black screen.Using the default Windows 8 drivers means that only 4200 chip works. Running Catalyst means that the 5200 driver is installed, but it runs very slow (Windows Graphics Performance goes down to 2.0, it runs at 4.2 for 4200 and used to be 5.6 in Windows 7).Any clues on how to get both cards running smoothly?

Using any version of Windows other than what comes on a laptop runs risks of undesired operation, be it a different release or even just the 64 bit versions.
