DVD WIN10 smooth edges & higher res not working

Hi, I got a new laptop recently and installed all EPs and stuff packs. It's a dual graphics card and the game is running on the AMD R7 M360.

Problem is, smooth edges is enabled and set on low but whenever I try to set it to "more", the game crashes. It creates an exception log with the code '0xC0000005 (-1073741819) ACCESS_VIOLATION.' I've attached it below.
The main game doesn't work in windowed mode and Bodyshop doesn't work at all. Both give me the 'Direct3D returned an error: E_INVALIDARG'
Also, the resolution is currently on 1024x780 but when I set it to 1920x1080, nothing happens - it just shows the loading cursor then does the 'changes will revert in 15 secs' even though the resolution hasn't changed. I have to exit out with Task Manager.

I have used the Video Card and Graphics Rules fix from here but these problems still persist. Maybe I've done something wrong?

Thanks for your help.

UPDATE: managed to get the higher resolution to work but the other problems remain.
