OEM card -> you need to get drivers from the OEM.

Dear Sir,

    From where I will get the OEM CD. Please suggest. I got windows 8 pre-installed with my system. 

I tried installing fglrx also but then my system doesn't boot and shows black screen. 

First of all after installing fglrx and rebooting it gave me some error saying hda intel error i915. Then it showed the gnome icon and just got stuck there didn't move. After that I went into recovery and opened the root shell and I wrote the command as: sudo aticonfig --initial --adapter=all
It gave the message as:
Uninitialised file found, configuring.
PowerXpress error: /usr/lib/fglrx/switchlibglx failed with exit status 1
PowerXpress info: Diagnostic output from /usr/lib/fglrx/switchlibglx:

Error: amd mode can't be enabled
