Hello Guys

I have an AMD Radeon 8870M GPU with dell inspiron 17R. dell has provided latest drivers for this GPU for windows 8.1 in its website. When I install them, some games like FIFA 14; FIFA 13; GTA IV; NBA 2k14 do not detect my graphics card, but the pc shuts down in a normal way.

When I install a clean version of AMD 13.11 beta drivers, the performance of games like battlefield 4 not only increases but all games detect the graphics card and game performace increases greatly. kudos to AMD. BUT..with the AMD beta driver, my computer would not shut down, sleep, hibernate or restart. I am always forced to use the power button to switch off my pc (laptop). I resinstalled the dell authorized drivers again (from dell website - a clean reinstall aafter cleaing all registry files and missing dlls with CCleaner) , I can now shut down ,sleep, hibernate and restart perfectly well. but am unable to play my fav. games like FIFA ..Please help ..anyone with a tested solution or good suggestion...

For me best config as for dell 3737 is OFFICAL Intel drivers 3345 + OFFICAL AMD 13.09

and no more of these problems, the laptop works perfectly...
