Defective Graphics ?

Hello people, today I got a HP Pavilion dv7 notebook from Micro Center that has AMD 6770 Graphics. i installed the Skyrim and tried to change the Graphics adapter from Intel HD graphics to 6770 But the problem is its not there!!! then i downloaded the CPUz, in CPU-Z garphics tab it only shows Intel Graphics and a Graphic device but it doesn't show that Graphic device is AMD 6770 or what ???
There is no signs of the 6770 :heink: !! it is in the device manager but i can't use it! also i can't install the Catalyst_mobility driver for it !!! it says it cant be downloaded due to incompatible Hardware software on the computer!
Well, you think its a defective notebook ?

    I downloaded installed this driver for 3rd time but got the same result didn't work. actually the ATI Catalyst works but i cant use the card for Skyrim or 3Dmark. its only using the intel graphics
  10. did you uninstall it first before installed the driver? Other than that try remove it from the device manager and reboot to see if it would install the driver correctly.
