Windows 8 - How to boot into BIOS and AMD driver not working?

HP Pavillion Dm4-3011TX (Beats Special Edition)

Windows 8

 

Well my first problem is that I dont know how to boot into BIOS sice i've upgraded to W8. I've tried to press F10, F9 and all those kinds of buttons but nothing seems to work? I have also tried to go into advanced boot in pc settings but i couldn't find anything in there that had anything to do with the BIOS. Any help?

 

My second problem is one of my GPU's (I have switchable graphics) AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series dosent seem to work.

Almost everytime I boot up a message comes up saying that the catalyst was not installed properly and its not made for that type of Windows or something along those lines. Is it because i updated to windows 8? When i go to device manager and right click; go to properties and it comes up with this message in the device status:

"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

 

I need help becuase basically i have to use the Intel HD graphics 3000.

It should still be F10 to enter BIOS.

 

Have you removed old Windows 7 drivers and installed Windows 8 drivers from your support page?

For now I would just do the Chipset and AMD driver. Later if anything else is giving problems go back and get others you may need to fix issues.
