Hi, please help me for setting my OBS, because i either got a black screen with smooth playing, or great recording with lag and choppy everywhere.

Here's my laptop specs :
Acer Aspire E 15 E5-551
- Windows 10 Home
- AMD Quad Core Processor A10-7300 with Turbo Core up to 3.20 GHz
- Dual GPU :
- AMD Radeon R7 M265 with 2 GB Dedicated VRAM (Switchable)
- AMD Radeon(TM) R6 Graphics (Main)
- 16 GB DDR3 L Memory
- 250 GB SSD (+-40 GB Free Space)

Based on my current specs i guess it shouldn't be a problem, should it?

I know i got the black screen because the Dual GPU things (OBS running on my AMD R7 meanwhile the game running on AMD R6),
i tried using game Chuchel here.

The problem is I don't know how to switch the AMD GPU using the proper way

I've tried several things :
1. Disable one GPU using Manage -> Device Manager
I got a great screen capture but OBS taking over 90% CPU usage!! And i'm not even running the game!
If I'm running the game. It ended up crash everything.

2. Using Game Capture set on SLI / Crossfire Capture Mode or Windows Capture on Multi-adapter Compatibility
I got a smooth gameplay with OBS + Game and everything takes around 15-60% CPU Usage on 40-60 FPS.
But the recording runs laggy and unwatchable. I haven't try for streaming though.

3. I Install the AMF but it didn't show up on my Encoder.
I can't find the way to switch the GPU on AMD Radeon Setting

Can i have a solution for this? I know there must be a good setting for this. I dunno which log file i must included.
I wanna start streaming soon but for now i just want to try OBS as my main game recording. Please help.

Ps : Sorry for my bad english, it's not my main language.
