Graphics Cards

Radeon HD 6490m

Intel HD Graphics 3000

Operating System

Windows 8 64-bit

Issue Details

My problem deals with not being able to switch back and forth between two graphic cards, like I was able to back on Windows 7. I have downloaded CCC v. 12.8, installed it and I'm getting error: "The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using the Displays Manager."

After some inferencing, I realized that my computer must be running on the integrated Intel graphics by default. This was further reinforced when I tried playing some games and other applications (It would be slightly choppy - as experienced before when I had forgotten to switch back onto High-Performance GPU).  I have no way of switching to the other GPU as Catalyst will not start and I am stuck with the low performence one. 

CPU Details

Intel Core I-5 2410m

I highly suggest reading the Catalyst Mobility Release Notes and/or AMD's Catalyst Mobility Support Page .. Therein you'll find out why and what to do ..
