Well, first of all sorry if this is a common issue.

Anyways, mostly every game I'm trying to run have their textures all messed up. For an example, here's Dota2

Some of the games (like Payday2 and Borderlands 2) that I have this issue can be fixed by ALT+TABBING, and somehow the game works FINE. Dota2 doesn't work, the only way to fix it is to closing and re-opening it over and over until the textures are okay. I seriously have no Idea what's going on.

Some of the games like The Walking Dead does not work at all:

I already set them no the Switchable graphics to High Perfomance, Economy and everything, but didn't worked. 

These are my specs: 

Laptop Dell Inspiron 15R 5537
Intel Core i7-4500U
8GB RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4400 ( http://i.imgur.com/VTqguQ2.png )
Radeon HD 8850M (Catalyst 14.6 Beta, but neither the stable 14.4 works)
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BIOS Dell Inc. A07, 12/11/2013

I don't know anything else to tell you guys, just that this issue is causing me A LOT of problems. Hope someone can help me.

Switchable graphics with the latest Intel graphics are difficult to update. Read this. The best thing to do is use system restore to a point before you tried to download generic drivers from AMD. Then go to Dell and get the latest drivers for your model laptop.

I get what you said, but somehow I don't feel this will actually be something good. Drivers are updated to optimize graphics performance on specific games, and there are new features like Mantle which are great, and installing an old driver will be a huge downgrade.
Overall my games do work, there should be a way to solve this issue without having to downgrade my PC to a so outdated driver.

Wish someone from AMD could help me with it =/

Your issue is with Dell and their switching program. Amd has nothing to do with that...as you read in the bulletin. You are encouraged to fill out a Issue Report Form and send it to AMD. Or, you could spend some time and read all of the similar posts in this forum, going back a year or so. You can try to use the generic drivers by going into the bios and disabling the onboard graphics...change from 'dynamic switching' to fixed or 'static'. Then follow the guide for installing new graphics..here in the FAQ. Your other option is to use the Leshcat modded drivers. To use them however, you must have a working set of drivers from your manufacturer.
