Can you access your laptop's BIOS and check that the radeon is set to be the primary graphics adapter?

Not always that easy edwar, I have the same issue on my Acer; no caps lock LED and let's face it, accidents happen. So go right ahead and jump down off of that high horse before I take out its knees.
