Default mistakenly installed graphic cards driver

Hi guys
I hope i'm posting in the right place...
I have an ATI RADEON 1G graphics card installed in my laptop (Dell inspiron i5 3521).
The original built-in graphic card is intel HD 4000.
Today i ran a driver update scan and it showed that i need to download/update driver for the intel HD 4000. Without thinking, i clicked it. Now I have this icon on my desktop. It seems like i have 2 graphic cards installed in my computer now. What does that mean and what should i do?

Thank you very much !

You don't need to do anything. Your CPU has an integrated GPU in it (the intel HD 4000) that your computer will switch to to save power when it doesn't need the strength of the Radeon card. If you want you can delete that icon.
