I have installed a Windows 8 Realese Preview and install the driver for it (old driwers don't work).http://www2.ati.com/drivers/hotfix/win8/amd_catalyst_win8_release_preview.exeAfter this my the Switchable Graphics don't work.  I can't switch between High-performance GPU and Power-saving GPU.  Also it don't change automaticalyBefore it I had a Windows 7 and older drivers.  There was an option to to disable a horizontal flicker (have other caption) but now I don't have this option.  I don't know how to fix it.Ati Redeon HD 5650 1 GBHp Pavilion dv6-3035eradditional monitor is Dell UltraSharp U2412M

The following notebooks are not compatible:

Toshiba® notebooks
Sony® VAIO® notebooks
Panasonic® notebooks

Notebooks equipped with switchable graphics

NOTEBOOKS EQUIPPED WITH SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS MUST GET DRIVERS FROM LAPTOP MANUFACTURER.
