Disable the onboard intel graphics.
Actually, I use Catalyst software to force After Effects to use the AMD one and it recognizes it in GPU Info... under Previews... and Element3D also appears to recognize it.
Do you think that disabling one will make AE work?
To be honest with you I don't know how to permanently disable the Intel one
You disable the intel stuff in the BIOS/ EFI.
Unfortunately that option is not available in my BIOS, I've just updated it to the latest version available and the only option about it is to disable switchable graphics which disables the discrete one (AMD). I've set in all preferences to use the AMD one but the intel one is still in use and After Effects it's like before, not letting my use OpenGL properly.
I can't disable Intel graphics as I've found out, I can just select which graphic to use in which aplication... I've reinstalled the drivers provided by HP but it doesn't work either
Maybe this helps:

Inside of Previews in After Effects only OpenGL Version 3.0.13401 is shown. I have everything is needed but I can't use the Hardware Acceleration...
