I have a MSI GX70 3be with Windows 8.1

When trying to set the switchable graphics in AMD CCC to use my dedicated card  for all applications depending on the power source/plan via 'Switchable Graphics Global Settings' or 'PowerPlay' the drop down arrows that are underneath plugged in and batter do not populate with options and because setting it on an app by app basis doesnt always work for me 'sometimes it will still use the inel' this can be very frustrating. Does anyone know what I should/could do to try and fix this?

I have reinstalled the drivers and ccc multiple times 

 MSI GX70 3be
 Windows 8.1
 Radeon 8970m
 Latest CCC and Driver
 Was working previously then just stopped
