My laptop (envy m6 1162la) was not using the graphics card (AMD Radeon 7640M).
I tried reinstalling the software AMD Catalyst but it wasn't detecting it either. I checked the windows device manager and the graphics card was greyed out (had to turn the option to show hidden devices because it wasn't showing). I tried updating drivers but it kept showing an error message (Code 45).
Then I followed the steps in this guide and tried uninstalling the device, rebooting and reinstalling. Now it's not even showing in the manager, and I can't find the driver download page in the HP website.
I also checked the AMD legacy software (catalyst) because it said it included the old drivers, but no luck so far.
I'd appreciate any help in this matter.
Thanks in advance.
