likely laptop with hybrid graphics (intel/AMD in this case) requires special software installation & setup?
also, how old is it?

I don't see this proprietary graphics driver is supported in the firmware-linux-nonfree or the firmware-amd-graphics packages in stretch, testing or sid but you might like to have a closer look yourself in case I missed something. If that's the case, then a possible solution might be R5 340 driver, which works according to a post at here.

By trying the instructions given on the site for Ubuntu. But it may not work at all with Debian 9 so probably you should contact Debian about the driver.

maybe it is running already?
please provide output of
Code: Select all
lspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d|display'


...but unless you address the hybrid graphics issue, you won't get very far i guess.
