No upgrades for my graphics driver for my HP Pavilion dv6 3118sa

I recently upgraded my HP Pavilion dv6-3118sa from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1.

There haven't been many issues since this upgrade, however for some reason the main graphics card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD5470) doesn't recognise my laptop screen at all. Luckily it recognises other screens that are connected via the HDMI port, however I can't keep using my projector as a screen!

When I change the graphics card to Intel(R) HD graphics card I can see the laptop screen again. I have gone on the HP site and unsurprisingly it doesn't have any updates for 8.1 for my laptop. Another issue with this is that for some reason when I plug my laptop in it automatically switches to the high performance graphics, so I can't use it plugged in!

Any suggestions on how to fix this?
