I have a Amd Radeon hd 7970m with Windows 7 64-bit. Every time I first start up a game it says that my graphic card is not supported... I guess it picks up my Intel HD graphics 4000 first instead of my Radeon? This causes problems with some games becuase they will freeze when I start them and have to reset my computer. On other games though they will load and I just exit out of them and Catalyst Control Center will then popup saying it detects that this application has not been configured and I just change it to High Performance and load the game back up and it plays fine. My problem is that I need it to always detect my Radeon instead of the crappy gpu first. It causes alot of problems like when I run can you run it it only detects my Intel Hd gpu instead of my radeon thus saying I cannot play the game... please help?

You could try to completly disable the Intel GPU in the windows control panel (hardware manager). Once it's disabled games should no longer detect it at all. Yet that will increase energy consumtion so it's not recommended for mobile use.

Go to your laptop manufacturer's forum or support...ask the question of them.
