I really don't know much about notebooks, but on my desktop, I download driver sweeper, boot into safe mode and select the AMD drivers, remove them, then reboot and install the new drivers. It has always worked for me.

Yes make sure you uninstall the drivers first. From my experience with ATI, sometimes you need to use an old driver to make things work properly. I would start with version 9.1 and see how that works. Just play around with the later ones afterwards, but make sure you create a restore point before you proceed to another installation.

You can get the same model number with either or depending on what it is running
Intel Hd graphics will work but to play games you have to be on super low

Also what you maybe thinking if your saying the model is suggesting to have discret gpu if that is the case then i can understand why you want to install it but generaly unless you did a clean sweep and instal of Os there is no need to update that driver

Mainly they are unified for just that model laptop
