    When I run this command:- lspci -vnn | grep VGA -A 12

    The following is output:

    What is your display doing or not doing? I'm not an expert but I don't know that you need to install anything, it looks like the appropriate driver is already installed. As I said, I'm not an expert so could be wrong.

    Re: Radeon R7 M265 Graphics Card Driver

    I am trying to play Dota 2 & CS GO on Steam. My fps is approximately 25 fps when it should be somewhere near 115? I cannot confirm that I have actually installed the drivers for the graphics card for the laptop - I was wondering if someone might be able to help me confirm by perhaps being able to walk me through a diagnostic to check what I have installed and what I need? Any assistance would be very much appreciated during this COVID-19 time we find ourselves in.

    Everything should be installed out of the box. To verify:
    Code:
    glxinfo -B        #This command should show Intel as the OpenGL renderer
    DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo -B        #This command should show AMD as the OpenGL renderer
    So when you want to run something on the AMD GPU, you need to run the command with DRI_PRIME, as in the command above.

    Oh, to do DRI_PRIME automatically for Steam, you can right-click on a game and add right click on the game and add this to the launch options:
    Code:
    DRI_PRIME=1 %command%

    Re: Radeon R7 M265 Graphics Card Driver

    Adding {DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo -B} to the launch option of the game definitely doesn't help. Unless I've done something wrong. Is that the only command I should have added in the advanced launch option properties?

    Thank you for your help thus far.

    No, glxinfo is only a diagnostic command. You were supposed to look at the output and verify the result (or copy/paste here if not sure).
    You were literally supposed to put this in the launcher:
    Code:
    DRI_PRIME=1 %command%
    Try again.

    Putting: DRI_PRIME=1 %command% - into the launcher outputs the below.

    bash: fg: %command%: no such job
