You need to get the drivers from Sony. AMD does not support Sony or switchable graphics. This is Sony's decision, not AMD. http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-28041SupportforATIMobility.aspx   and

WOW, I got the same prob with my Sony CB2S1E/B. Intel HD Graphics and AMD Radeon HD 6630M.

I tried hours and hours installing the newest AMD Drivers, and now I read that Sony's NOT supporting AMD Drivers????? 

OK, now I'm REALLY bad with Sony. What the *****? They DON't OFFER drivers to download for Windows 8!

Well, calm down. NEVER gonna buy a *****Sony Notebook again

It's not just Sony....all laptop manufactures offer at the most three updates to the graphics. Some mfg's do allow updates thru AMD however...and some users use modded drivers to install updates. That doesn't help for Win 8 though. Check this Sony support forum https://forum.sel.sony.com/viewforum.php?f=114&XID=M:info_993:esupport
