Are you using a Laptop or Desktop ?

If you are using desktop. Connect your VGA Cable from monitor to your amd card .

When I need to guess: You'r CPU is an Intel with integrated graphics.

Thus chose the AMD video adapter.

Its a laptop

yes this is the last driver from HP

Yes it a laptop with a integrated graphics  

were to go to chose the AMD video card because in the game it self the only option i see is the Intel only
I have a similar solution with nvidia in my laptop, and there is an option where i right click the program and get the option 'Run with graphical processor' and there i can select which videocard to use, maybe you have that option too?

I dnot understand in the email above i stated in the game it self i was able to find the option where you can select for graphic cards
but only one option appear.
I understand, the option should be there before you launch the game, eg. right click the shortcur for the game and see if you have the option to run it using a specific videocard.

That option is not available on every game .. if you are using amd or nvidia.. both have an application installed with your driver . Open that and check an option called switchable display
