Help Integrated graphics taking precedence over dedicated laptop (skyrim)

I have a hp laptop, windows 7, with integrated intel graphics, as well as amd radeon 6700m. Ive heard that my performance would increase(I run 50 mods currently) if I made skyrim use the dedicated card, but I know for sure it is using the intel one( it says it in options menu as well as in the skyrimpref.ini). How do I go about doing this? When I right click on the desktop and select "configure switchable graphics" or "graphic properties" it says there is no amd driver installed. Yet when i go to device manager it says radeon 6700m is working properly and installed. Any suggestions?
