    Do the testing first before you spend too much time on how or why Windows renamed your hardware.

    In this instance, it may be a case of 'Windows knows best!'

    Your laptop includes an Intel CPU with built-in graphics (I3-350M), and separate AMD Radeon Mobility 5145 graphics.

    I have no personal experience with this, but I believe that the laptop uses both graphics devices: the Intel one for low power consumption, the Radeon for when higher performance is needed.

    I think that you need to have drivers for both installed. Are your graphics really displayed as "Radeon 4500"? That seems strange.

    AMD drivers: Desktop


    (The Mobility 500 series is supposed to be supported.)

    I find the Intel graphics driver download selections to be confusing, but the I3-350m may not have drivers newer than Windows 7 available. (They ought to work, though.)
