    What's the exact model number of that Dell Inspiron 5000 series laptop?
    What's the exact "service tag" number and "express service code" number on it?
    What's the exact Windows version and bit number it's running?

    Not sure with your system, but I do have an older generation A4 processor desktop than has dual graphics. For that system, I had to enable dual graphics in BIOS to link my PCIe graphics card with the GPU built into the A4 processor. When I open Catalyst Control and go to (IIRC) video options, there is a section there that shows my GPU's being linked. I believe you can unlink there too.

    I noticed in one of your pics, it does show your graphic cards as being linked. Check around the AMD software to see if you can find the section that shows the link and possibly unlink from there. Or you may need to go to BIOS and disable the dual graphics option.
