Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs page for your notebook...

 

http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-15-Notebook-PC-series/5355006/model/5435448/document...

 

It only has the onboard Intel HD 4000 graphics.

 

HP puts all the available driver combinations on the entire model series support pages.

 

That means the switchable graphics drivers would be for the HP 15-e### models that come with the AMD/Intel switchable graphics.

Your Specs page says you have Intel graphics only:

Some models in the series your laptop belongs to have switchable graphics. It is a hardware addon- not something which you can simply enable. HP posts drivers for all of the laptops in a series- that is why you see the aMD driver in your list. Sorry, wish the news was better.
