Hello, everyone. I recently bought a HP pavilion G6 laptop. It comes with a built-in AMD Radeon HD 7400M 1GB graphics card. All the games and programs that I have tried seem to be using Intel(R) HD Graphics Family instead of the AMD. I have also assigned High Performance (via switchable graphics) to the games and programs, but they still run using the Intel(R) HD Graphics Family. 

Also, disabling Intel(R) HD Graphics Family in device manager - games and programs did not pick up any graphics card.

My question is, how can I use my built-in 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7400 instead of Intel(R) HD Graphics Family ? I have searched everywhere, but was not able to find a solution.
