Sorry for my english level.

I have hp pavilion g6 with 2 video adapters: Intel and Radeon hd 7000m series. I upgraded my os from 8 to 8.1. First when I tried to strart games, I saw notification about d3d error, and then my laptop shoved blue screen of death. The reason's were the troubles with drivers. Then i installed drivers, using auto- instal function by Microsoft from devices dispatcher. Now my laptop use only intel's adapter. I tried to install a lot of versions ccc, but no one doesn't work. When I try to run ccc, I see message about incompatibility of equipment. And hp Support portal haven't drivers too.

I understand, that developers, can not make drivers so fast, but I want to know, will ccc w8.1 for hd7000m exist?

Why are you getting those messages? Because you can't use the generic drivers from AMD. Try reading the 'sticky' "UPDATING MOBILITY DRIVERS".

I cant instal catalist, and I it is the reason. I can't using switchable graphics, because there is no drivers for it.

You need to revert to the OS that worked for you. If your laptop supports 8.1 , then the manufacturer will have drivers for it...and those are the only ones that will work with the switchable graphics. You can use the Leshcat drivers...google it.

ok, i`ve installed drivers from HP site for my pavillion, and i can see them working, but there`s one big problem: black screen in all games (i can hear that they`re launching, but i can`t see nothing)

i`ve asked same question at HP support forum, but nobody answered, google also can`t tell nothing
