I bought this laptop almost 2 years before and I want to ask a simple question.Where is the drivers for R7 M440?
The Graphics card(R7 M440) does not work as I intended and even tho AMD's drivers lags soo much comparing to HP's drivers.
Fİrst,Its name wont show up on no game and dxdiag.I can only check its name on msinfo32 and it says R8 M445DX which is combination of R5 and R7.
Games only detects 1/8 of the R7 M440 and all of the R5 Graphics which is 512MB (1GB total)
Why this happens and how can I fix this?Buying a new computer is not a option.I can't afford it and the affordables are worst than this laptop in specs.
And I don't want to switch to Desktop because of portability.So what should I do now?
Windows 10 1803 lags so I use 1607 which is older and I want to use the new features of 1807 which will come next and after months there is no drivers for 1803 already.
Edit: Laptop is HP 15-ba010nt

The linked driver is too outdated for Wİndows 10 1803 and my BIOS is already up-to-date.And even the latest one in HP Support page does not works with that version too.
I installed the driver from AMD but it also lags but not same as the HP's driver.But it still lags so bad.
I tried that version before and it gave an error and crashed while installing.
The latest version of the driver is realased in 2017 and today is May 19 ,2019.Where is the latest driver?
Also, I got a notification about Radeon ReLive but I can't manage to use it properly even tho I set things up after I recevied that notification.
So,If there will be a new driver then I will be happy.

I already did a factory reset and updated the Windows 10 again to same version (1803) and it was up to date and the problem is with the update.
The latest driver available to this hardware (on HP Driver Download Page) is made for 1703 and there is no graphics driver for 1803 and the latest one is not compatible with 1803.
I just want to use the new verison without having a problem. Now I'm stuck in 1703 until a new driver which is compatible with 1803 realases.
Let me tell what is up to date and what is not:
-Windows 10 => currently not updated, 1703
-Graphics Drivers => according to HP it is up to date but according to AMD it is not
-BIOS => up to date
-Other drivers => up to date
-Windows 10 - Updates => no update available
The mesaage is clear, update the driver to 1803 or this computer becomes a trash in following days because Microsoft pulls the support for older versions of Windows 10,not just XP or Vista.

The problem solved after I updated to 1903.It isn't laggy anymore and even without making tweaks, games run smoothly.
But it will be cool if we get an update about the graphics card because a lot of new stuff realased for other AMD GPUs (like ReLive, AMD Link etc.).
Thanks for your help but I will not close it right now, need to apply some tweaks and then if nothing bad shows up, I will check this as fixed.
