Hello HP user...
AMD radeon HD 6490M was developed by Hp But Hp employees are lazy to upload the link of driver which support windws 8.
This driver works on my "AMD RADEON HD 6490m" on windows 8...

I don't post at all but now I have to help people. So, I had same problem with windows 8. I just bought it and I was so sad because my Ati Radeon 5650 Mobility didn't work correctly. I tried everything.... I downloaded new drivers and it didn't work at all. I cleaned my whole computer and nothing happend. I spent many hours to fix this problem but Ati didn't start. But then I downloaded old(for windows 64bit) Ati drivers from HP website(or I'm not sure because I dowloaded many drivers from Ati website (but I didn't downloaded Beta). Some one said here.
-Navigate to folder C:\SWSetup\SP55092 and find properities but I have different "SP*****" so I didn't care.(but I dont know how I found it but (some SP****) was there!)
"But warning I dowloaded Beta Windows 8 drivers/ati catalyst control center"(from Ati site) and my computer got blank screen and I rebooted but blank screen stayed so I had to reinstall windows"
So today I tried that navigate C:\SWSetup\SP55092 - right click- properities- "Compatibility"- run this program as an Compatibility and choose windows 7- and run this program Adminstors(or what is it) and then just launch setup.exe
So I did that and I scared that I will get blank screen again and I got it. I was sure that I have to reinstall windows again but NO! I just rebooted computer and IT WORKS! So THANK YOU helping me out of this and I hope that this will help others also... But be aware! it worked for me but maybe other one isn't so lucky. But if you want to take risk, take it if you don't have nothing to lose...
And my computer is like one and half years old or two.
And sorry my english...
