I just opened my laptop and i noticed that it wasnt behaving so well.So i went on the device manager and saw that my display drivers (Both intel and AVG HD ) were having problems.The only choice that i had left was to restore my computer.Once i did that, at the device manager-display adapters were only Intel hd driver(AVG HD was dissapeared).So now i dont have amd drivers on my computer.I've tried downloading them from amd.com and dell.com but doesnt work.Please i need some help!I spent a lot of money on this computer.

probably wrong - corrupted driver http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/GPU57RemoveOldGraphicsDrivers.aspx use this to uninstall all previous amd drivers and http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/auto-detect-tool use this autodetect tool to make sure you download and install the correct driver.

If you did a factory restore, that should have installed all the correct drivers. If you are having issues with the video card after that, it could be a hardware issue.

Update the BIOS and chipset drivers on the laptop, then try the drivers from Dell, not AMD. Make sure you select 32 or 64 bit drivers depending on what you need.
