Dell Inspiration 15 5000 Graphics card help

So I received my Dell laptop today and I'm a little confused how graphics cards work as this is my first laptop. It's currently using Intel HD graphics 620 though it should have a Radeon R7 M445 4GB card. Do I need to manually switch it or something? Please help cause I can't game without it 😞

Hi GreenTheAssassin,

Thanks for posting.

It does that automatically, there is no need to switch things. The AMD kicks in when you do 3D graphics, like games, CAD, etc. When you are using Word / looking at your icons, it defers down to the onboard graphics card. There is no way to use AMD all the time.
