Hello,

Not that long ago, I've upgraded my laptop OS from Win7 to Win8 64 bits. Before the upgrade, everything functioned properly and the gaming performance that my laptop dilivered was stunning.

But once I was running on Win8, it all degraded. The gaming performance is now more poor and there is no driver installed. Neither auto detect or manually installing a driver fails ("Unkown OS")


Graphics Card
2GB AMD Radeon HD 7730M
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

Catalyst Driver
None! Before win8 installation a good working version for win7

Operation System
Windows 8 Pro 64 bits

Model
Dell Inspiron 7520


Thanks in advance!

Get the drivers from DELL website http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/inspiron-15r-se-7520 and select Windows 8 64-bit. Performance degredation is normal - "newer isn't always the best", wait for the OS to mature, for drivers to get better etc.
