Updating dual graphics in laptops is problematic at best. Checking this site and Google results prove that. Generally, when you try to update both cards from an outside source (other than HP) you lose the 'switchable' function. However some people have had success in just updating one of the cards...and still retain the function. You can download the drivers from here > http://benchmark3d.com/amd-catalyst-12-11-beta-11-9-01-8 . Here is a article from HP > http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c02731962 with a link to laptops configured with dual AMD chips.

And don't let Far Cry3 fps be your reason for trying to update. You probably won't see any improvement. High end desktop cards barely scrape out 30fps...M / Mobility chips are not going to do as well.  Best thing to do is make sure you have the latest CAP installed > http://benchmark3d.com/catalyst-application-profiles-12-11-cap-2 .
