Help!!! I can't use my AMD Graphics Card

I was stupid and accidentally uninstalled my AMD Catalyst Program in an attempt to update the drivers. Now I cant switch to the card from the integrated Intel card. I can't restore the computer or re-install the program. When I try to re-install it, its doesn't work but there are no errors. Can someone help me fix this large problem?

Try a System Restore using the below tutorial. There should be a restore point before you uninstalled the Catalyst Control Center (CCC).

First,

AMD Catalyst Help

Second, JaidynM sorry to say but none of that will help as the reference AMD drivers will not install on any laptop that has switchable graphics, even more so when it is paired with Intel graphics.

HPowner you need to get the driver(s) for it from HP and HP only.

Fair enough. I'll remove the info so as not to mislead the OP. I'll leave the System Restore though. It could still help. Sorry about that, Rich.
