My Alienware M17XR3 no longer recognizes my graphics card?

So, I bought this baby back in 2011. At some point, I updated the drivers and now when I go into the 'display adapters' area, all  it says it 'Intel HD Graphics 3000'.

I know this sounds crazy, but I could have sworn I had an AMD card in this thing when I bought it. It's not possible that some generic driver wrote over the information for this machine is it?

The only game I play (or have time for) is World of Tanks. Sometimes the graphics in the game is given the option for high performance, sometimes it only lets me choose low. I have reinstalled the game, and now am wondering the problem may be with the graphics drivers.

Also, when I update the drivers on the Intel HD Graphics 300, it says my drivers are the latest.

ugh...

I looked in the BIOS, and it says the Integrated Graphics are the Intel Sandy Bridge. Discrete Graphics 1 is not detected. Whatever.
