Windows 7: Replace Standard VGA Display adapter with AMD Radeon(TM) R4 Graphics

Replace Standard VGA Graphic adapter with AMD Radeon(TM) R4 Graphics

Hi everyone.
I am so happy with Windows 7 that I have bought a new laptop Toshiba Satellite L50D-B, but I did not love nothing of the pre-installed win 8 at all, so I formatted the disk and copied onto it the last image I had of Window 7 and all my well functioning programs. The image came from a HP Pavilion 6xxxx, thus the drivers of all hard drive components needed to be replaced with that of Toshiba. I went on Toshiba site and found all drivers I needed of my new laptop and for windows 7 (32 first and 64 bit then). The only problem remaining is that I cannot replace the Standard VGA Graphics adapter with the AMD Radeon(TM) R4 Graphics. I have tried any methods I know, mounted and unmounted many drivers. I tried also to make a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit in a new partition, but the standard vga graphics adapter remains there impassible. Catalyst installs but does not see the display. I used DDU (Display Driver Uninstall), the sole program that has eliminated Catalyst perfectly from my new laptop, but the Standard VGA Graphics Adapter remains still unmovable. As i found suggested on the internet I tried to uninstall the old driver and reinstall the new in windows dafe mode. Is it possible there are some HP drivers blocking the installation of the correct AMD driver???
Any suggestion? I have the disks for restoring my satellite to its original horror Win 8.1 pre-installed state, if this can be of some help, to catch some 8.1 drivers, for example...
Thank in advance for a help.

Small correction on that, it's the drivers for the Motherboard components that you need. There appears to be more to the model number such as Toshiba Satellite L50D-B-124 as an example, will help in finding the correct drivers.

Dear Berton,
thank you for responding me. Maybe I have not understood your reasoning in the right sesnse, but all drivers I tried to install on my Toshiba come from Toshiba or AMD site, and are specific for the exact model of Satellite I have. Best regards.

Hi ... The problem seems to be that we can not find your Model Number on the Toshiba Website ..

There looks to be some letters missing at the end of your Model Number..


Could you provide a Link for your Model Number .. That contains Windows 7 Drivers ? ..

Hi Maxie, thank you. My Laptop identity card reports:

Toshiba Satellite Skullcandy
L50D-B-12W
serial number
6E221980C
model number
PSKULE-00K009IT

AMD A6-6310 APU with AMD Radeon G4 graphics

As you could see by your eyes, I got all drivers for that "exact" model in the site of Toshiba Europe as indicated in the customer instructions: Download Windows 7 drivers:

Best regards,
Stefano

Dear Maxie, many thanks. I will try what you suggest. And even though this too does not work I will accept that Standar VGA Graphic Adapter in my pc, also seen that I never run games on it. :-) I will keep you updated.
Best regards,
Stefano
