Im currently having issues with Photoshop. Whenever I open up the liquify in photoshop, I get a black screen. After googling this issue I found that the only way to fix it is turning off the "Use Graphics Processor" 

Honestly I have no other choice but to do this. Whenever I have tried to update my AMD graphics card using an automatic detection option, it detects my Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000, and closes down. Whenever I have tried to manually install a new AMD driver from AMD Website, I only get a beta driver option. Whenever I research the subject of downloading drivers for laptops with intergrated graphics, people suggest to download drivers only using the manufacturers built in downloading program.

In my case, thats SW Update by Samsung. Now I've already downloaded the recent drivers for both my Intel and AMD using the SW Update program, which leads to the question - What do I do to fix the issue of Photoshop not working in conjunction with my current graphics card/s?..

Now under the the switchable graphics option I've set Photoshop to High Performance which allows Photoshop to use the AMD GPU instead of the Intel GPU. However that still does not fix the issue because Photoshop wants another AMD driver.

Feel free to suggest a way of fixing this issue. Believe me I would happily buy another computer/ or change laptops GPU after all the issues I've experienced with Intergrated Graphics, and especially AMD Graphics cards... First there was the Lumion program which wasnt compatible with AMD, then there was E-on Vue once again not fully compatible with AMD, then there was Mari 2.5 not compatible with my AMD and intergrated graphics. And finally now theres Photoshop.

Laptop specs can be found here if you wish to see them:
