I just bought a new laptop, Dell Inspiron 15r 5537 having 4th gen i7 4500u,8gb ram,radeon 8850m 2gb gddr5 gfx card. I just downloaded Skyrim and when I played it it was so laggy. I could get only 5-20 fps. It looks like I'm playing on integrated graphics but I can't switch to my dedicated gpu. I have set the game at high performance in AMD Catalyst center and I'm still not able to get better performance. I also set the global settings to high and still I'm getting poor fps.
How do I switch to my AMD Radeon graphics from integrated HD 4400??
Please help me.

Hello... set your Bio's for PCI-E video boot first... save settings and exit... plug your monitor into your Video card, and set your monitor for that connection... re-start your computer.

While that may work for a desktop, that will not work for a laptop.
