Game works with Intel HD graphics, but not using Radeon 7450M card.
I'm gaming on a Dell laptop with "switchable" graphics, a core i5 processor and 6GB of RAM running windows 7 64bit. There are several games in my library that work with the integrated HD graphics but not with the 7450M.

The Dell's BIOS doesn't let me edit it to use only the 7450M, but I've made all the control panel settings I can to use only the 7450M (even though the darn thing keeps trying to automatically switch back to the HD processor every time I unplug it from the wall).

I don't want to use the HD graphics for anything, espectially gaming, since the 7450 is more capable (in theory, anyway). I'm sure there's some setting that I'm missing. Most of my games run better with the 7450 (left 4 dead, and Portal to name two). How can I get the game to take advantage of the dedicated graphics card that I paid for?

(Cross posted with in the Hydrophobia forum since the same issue crops up there.)
