Windows 7: How do I switch from integrated graphics?

How do I switch from integrated graphics?

The situation is I'm trying to play Fallout 3, but it keeps creating random visual glitches, like purple checkerboards and grey light tunnels around the characters' faces. I assume this is because It refuses to switch from the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics to my AMD Radeon HD 7730M. I only really want to get rid of the purple checkerboards.

(refer to image)
The drop down menu for the graphics adapter only has the Intel HD.

Windows 7 64 bit SP1. EFI boot partition., full EFI boot.

Likely a BIOS setting. Fill in your hardware (motherboard manufacturer and model).
