switchable graphics problem

hello all. I have a hp pavilion notebook 17 g133cl with A10 R7 and R8 M365DX switchable graphics which are not working properly. i have set the active power plan to high performance, set the application(game) to use the high performance graphic card in the switchable application settings and made sure that the laptop was plugged in. after all this the application monitor shows the games running on the integrated gpu which performs poorly. i even updated the bios in order to change the switchable option to fixed graphics mode but that also did not help. the bios was updated successfully but there was no option to change the switchable graphics mode. am out of ideas now please help.
