Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the situation is that you should not have done the Win10 Upgrade.  Their Upgrade tool does a really poor job of detecting switchable graphics prior to the updrade, and as a result, folks like you end up with machines that are no longer fully functional.  Same thing happened to me.

 

With switchable graphics, the only working drivers come from the OEMs that make the machines, because the hardware is customized, so to have to be the drivers.  MS does not supply these drivers, nor do the video card makers.

 

So, without HP Win10 drivers for your PC, you're stuck with only two outcomes:

1) Keep Win10 and struggle with the graphics problem

2) Return your PC to the original OS.

 

I chose the second because I prefer a PC with an older OS where everything worked, to a PC with a new OS, where some things do not work.

What we got here is a upgrade that didn't support your switchable graphics setup. Your only choice is to revert back to the support O/S that you had to be able to use the switchable graphics. Until HP releases a Switchable graphics driver for Win10 for your model(since we have no idead which one exaclty it is)you will have to revert back.

-------- Looking for HP driver support When Windows 10 O/S isn't Supported ------
Windows 10 drivers may be available through Windows Update

BTW, Millions of folks have gone back from Win10 to their prior O/S -- something you don't hear about from MS. by WAWood but ALL to TRUE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Those that want HD Gaming should plan to invest in a Gaming Laptop to handle those requirements. Eamples GTA V or Crysis 3.
