Windows 7: Updating Intel HD Graphics 3000 Makes the Radeon Gone

Updating Intel HD Graphics 3000 Makes the Radeon Gone

I hope everybody can help this.
This morning, i upgraded my Intel HD Graphics 3000 because some programs force me to update it. But, I don't know why, after restaring my laptop, I see that the graphics has changed from Radeon to HD Graphics. You know, HD Graphics is only have 64 MBs of its RAM. Different far away from my Radeon that has 1024 MBs of RAM.

And when I try to playing some games, it says, "Your Graphics card doesn't meet the system requirement". It is very sucks. And then, checking the Device Manager it doesn't show my Radeon graphics anymore.

I want to change my graphics back to Radeon, but can't. I've tried every step from the internet and still not work. There is no message something like this in my desktop: "Switchable Graphics Driver". And every start, the Catalyst Control Center says: "Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics card. Please update your AMD graphics driver or enable your AMD adapter using Displays Manager.". I have followed this from internet:

Click "Start."
Click "Control Panel."
Click "Display."
Click "Change Display Settings."
Click "Advanced Settings."
Click the "Adapter" tab. Select the ATI adapter from the list on screen. Click "Properties."
Click the "Driver" tab.
Click "Enable" to enable the ATI adapter through the "Display" manager.

But, when I arrived in Adapter tab, there is no any dropdown menu in there. It is only show my Intel HD Graphics card.

Maybe, using a system restore will restore my Radeon Graphics card?

So, what I supposed to do?
