    I think you're gonna need to forget modded drivers and install official manufactures drivers.

    I have a similar issue.

    My Switchable Graphics option is there but I cannot configure it at all. I have tried modded drivers, original drivers and running with compatibility settings.

    For some reason when I select Configure Switchable Graphics it takes me to the Creating and Arranging Desktops screen.

    Have anyone else experienced this? Is there a way to fix it?

    thats a bit odd, but my advice is to uninstall the Microsoft AMD driver and reinstall new drivers from AMD's website.

    Not really when you think about it. MS has default drivers and not necessarily the ones that AMD has. So, removing the MS ones and replacing them with the correct drivers from AMD does make sense to me, at least.

    I have tried using the AMD drivers as well as the MS drivers - nothing...
    Even tried modded drivers

    I've been trying to figure out this for a while now - even with the previous build I had the same issue.
    I have clean installed Windows 10 as well.

    My line of work is Field Support Engineer with about 12 years experience in ICT. So it's not like I don't know what I'm doing.
    I did notice that whenever I right-click the tray icon it lists my Intel instead of the AMD/ATI.

    I take it nobody has seen this before?

    well this fixed my errors, enduro modded omega drivers. have you tried those?

    Link to download...

    before you install those make sure your video card is on the support list then use Display Driver uninstaller
    Direct download..

    then install the modded drivers from that guy


    Also you might want to disable Microsoft auto driver update because it will keep updating your drivers to the wrong one and you will loose the SG menu.

    Tried it with Windows 7 and 8.1 driver.

    Although - I think it might have something to do with the Dell Laptop. When I try to install the Intel Driver from Intel's site it says that no supported hardware device detected. When I install the Dell Intel driver it allows me to install the driver. I have tried using the inf from the Dell with the Intel original driver as well. Doesn't work either.
