I have a bit of a conundrum on my hands. I'm currently running with a Lenovo y470p which has intel/amd switchable graphics. It's running hd graphics 3000 and amd 7690m and I'd love to run Ubuntu on this thing but I can't, for the love of god, get the graphics to work, when I boot into ubuntu with this laptop.

I run hot and my cpu fan just goes insane, plus I don't even know which graphics card is used. Now I don't need to have switchable graphics, I just want to make sure I have a working driver for the amd graphics card and make sure that it's the card in use, does any one know of a solution?

Could you run in a terminal sudo lspci -nkk | grep -A7 VGA and include the result in your question? –  Braiam Sep 7 '13 at 0:59
