Dedicated Graphics not showing in Device Manager

My laptop is an:
HP Pavilion dv6t-3000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC running Windows 7 SP1 64 bit version.

The issue is that the dedicated graphics card: an ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 fails to show up in device manager most of the time. So instead the computer uses the Intel HD integrated graphics.

Here it doesn't work.

Here it works.

I'm unsure why sometimes the dedicated graphics card is not detected but it's really frustrating.

Does anyone have any ideas?
