Hi, I have a HP dv6 3131tx (64bit) notebook. I just recentley upgraded to Windows 8 since my laptop is said to be compatible on the HP website. 

I can't manage to find drivers for my 1 GB switchable graphics card (ATI radeon 5650 in paticular).

Because of this issue I can't connect my notebook to anything using my HDMI cable,I can't use softwares such as AutoCAD (engineering software), i can't play pretty much any game that requirs decent graphics and my laptop runs out of charge real quickly becausei can't switch the mode of my graphics. 

I have tried downloading the Beta version of the drivers but i get this black screen that doesnt respond after i install it and then I have to factory data reset my notebook. (I have reseted it 3 times in the last 3 days because of drivers not working).

I have also tried using the windows 7 driver in compatibility mode but even that doesnt solve any issue. 

Really needs Help. Asap. Thanx in advance.
