Only drivers from Sony website are compatible with Sony laptops - - hence the "incompatible hardware" error if you downloaded from somewhere else.

Have a look in Control Panel - there should be an AMD utility to specifiy which apps & games you want Radeon graphics to be the default. Updating the Radeon driver will not help with that, it's just knowing where to find the utility to set your graphics preferences. Mines in Control Panel, but in my case the discrete graphics adapter is nVidia not AMD.
