So, I have an interesting scenario, and it's completely my fault, so I'll give Microsoft a break here... I bought a new laptop (An HP 15z-bw000- CT0) And I didn't want the windows 10, so I used a USB drive to install Windows 8.1, and during that installation process, I deleted all the partitions so that I'd be left with all of my HDD space "Unallocated"... So after that, I installed windows 8.1, everything worked perfectly... except.... I can't change the brightness on my screen.... Apparently, Windows doesn't even recognize that I have and AMD Video card, and instead chooses to use the "Microsoft Basic DIsplay Adapter" And I can't find the model of my Video card at all so I can actually download the proper drivers for Windows 8.1.... I know that It's an AMD Radeon R5, however, I do not know what the actual model is, and it's not listed anywhere on my computer... the only way I can think to do is disassemble the Laptop, and check the physical markings on the Video card. I've even checked the HP store where I bought it, and it doesn't list any specific models, only the "Radeon R5" but no model.
Any help on this matter would be extremely appreciated.
