Thinkpad Edge E520 graphics card driver problem

Hi, I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 for about 3 years now, and i have a problem that i can't solve for about almost a year. I've been searching for help on another forum, but with no luck so i decided that i might get some help here. I have two switchable graphics card in my laptop - AMD Radeon HD 6630M and Intel Graphics 3000. The thing is, that im currently running on Intel card for that year. One day, when i ran a game, it worked good for a while, and then i got huge FPS drop. When i restarted PC, ran a game, any game, it went fine for a while and again after few minutes i got FPS drop. So i opened my laptop, looked inside, and cleaned it from dust. After i put it all together, it worked like a charm. But only for a few days. Then, while playing a game, i got BSOD. Since then, i can't install ANY AMD driver. Just can't. Whenever i try, i get BSOD during installation. I thought that a new windows install might solve the problem so when the chance appeared, i downloaded windows 10. It didn't solve the problem. I tried every option i had, i even did a clean factory install - like if i bought it, no programs, no documents, nothing. Unfortunatelly, that didn't work either. I thought that when i opened the laptop all those months ago, i might screw something up. So i opened it again today, but i never dissamblley it completely, not then, not now. And there was nothing about the graphics card i could screw up. I didn't even see it. So i'm really desprate, i tried everything, i have absolutely no idea what's wrong with it and why. You are my only hope to make it work again.

Windows 10 isn't supported on E520 and doesn't support the hybrid driver. There won't be any future update for the driver which hasn't been updated in 3 years.

So, i won't be able to install AMD driver on windows 10 any soon, if at all, but if i do a clean install of windows 7, it should work ?

On Windows 7 it will work with installing the hybrid driver and AMD CCC app.
