Whenever I run the update checker it gives me this error:

Further search tells me that it is because the laptop has switchable graphics and my best bet would be to download the drivers directly and not rely on the automated checking. So where do I get these>?

AMD doesn't provide drivers for switchable graphics, but laptop manufacturers do. Don't expect them to be up-to-date, though. – gronostaj Jun 2 '13 at 6:05

Try Auto Detect Tool from AMD. It will detect your ATI display adapter model and give you the latest driver for that. If you are unable to use that Find the latest driver manually on AMD Website.

The drivers identified by the Auto Detect Tool or manually selected from AMD's web site are notorious for having problems with OEM hardware. The only place to get a driver that will work reliably with OEM hardware is from the computer manufacturer. – fixer1234 Oct 8 '14 at 5:39
