Hi, I have i3 g40 lenovo laptop. 8gb ram. 2gb(1gb? not sure dxdiag says 2 and system profile msinfo says 1 gb adapter ram) intel hd integrated graphics and 2 gb dedicated AMD radeon 8500M.
The problem is I only see the 2gb intel hd being used and not AMD as well. Is there a way to get both of them to work? My fps is current going 30-60 (spikes ) in league of legends (which is the only game I play) which has a low system requirements.
Do I need to install graphics card(probably external one since I play to upgrade my laptop in future) to increase the fps here, or can I do it by making AMD be in use too?

thank you :)

I installed amd catalyst control. NOw it is showing render option in dxdiag which shows amd graphics options but it says render only display device. Does it mean that laptop is going to use amd when I play game now? but when I played league the amd system monitor shows no use of amd graphics:

Hi, it seems to be working cause I see league of legends being on the application under amd radeon, but the only thing is there is no movement in amd radeon monitor. So still confused if it is working or not. The fps seems to be a problem of opening another software which uses a lot of memory. I am getting about 50-90 right now, is it good enough for this amd radeon dedicated graphics? is it being used?
