Hi, 
I'm having trouble with my laptop drivers. I have a clevo/horize P150SM the gfx card is a AMD 8970M. I used the AMD driver auto-detect drivers and was prompted to d/l this driver:  13-12_mobility_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql  I installed it and restarted, my windows theme was still on 'basic' after restarting with the new driver installed. I checked 'dxdiag' and under display, my video card (8970M) was not listed and it just showed my intel chipset onboard graphics. So anyone know why this driver isn't working for me? is there another I could try?

If the driver installed fine and didn't have any errors you are good to go.

That laptop has switchable graphics. So at the time you ran dxdiag it had the intel graphics on. You need to re run the windows experience index for it to enable the aero theme.
