PC games lag and Graphic's card not seen by PC

I been having a serious problem with my pc for the last month weeks.

I played a video game with a friend on my windows 7 pc, went to bed and the next day it just could not run that game anymore, i shortly after found out that most of my game could in fact not run properly anymore, we are talking games like, Red Faction Guerrilla, Metal Gear Rising Re-vengeance, Warframe and so on, while i could easily play other less power hungry games like Offspring Fling, Minecraft, Retro City Rampage DX and so on.

The games will lags/stutter extremely hard and the and lightning and effects will go crazy while the mouse cursor is kinda going slow-motion, it seems like it's trying to load too many thing's at a time while going almost slow-motion, but the odd thing is that the sound works perfectly normal.


Piriform Speccy:

I didn't change anything that day but updated the Display Adapters using Driver Booster 3 shortly before shutting down the pc.

I have tried countless ways to fix this issue, but i am far from experienced with this kind of stuff and only handles the basic's, please be detailed when explaining things to me.

I have taken some screenshots and pictures you can see here Acer trouble - Album on Imgur

PS: Under device manager it now only sees my Intel HD graphics and have completely ignored/forgotten about my AMD Radeon. (can't even run AMD Catalyst anymore for some reason unknown to me.)

Thanks in advance.

What kind of Radeon card do you have? And is this a laptop?

I just noticed this in your original post:

You probably shouldn't use Driver Booster 3 to update drivers. Those programs cause more problems for users than you would probably think. Driver Booster 3 has probably borked your graphic drivers completely.

Uninstall the Radeon graphic drivers from Device Manager, and uninstall Catalyst Control Centre from Programs and features, and then get the proper graphics card driver direct from AMD here:

Download Drivers

You can either have AMD auto detect your card and install the driver, or you can manually choose the driver to download. In any case you want the driver for the HD 7700 series cards. Make sure that if you choose manually, that you choose the right driver and OS for the download.

Well for starters as i stated on my first post at the end, the Radeon graphics drivers does not even show up anymore.

And the AMD Catalyst refuses to boot up no matter what i do,
i uninstalled them many times and installed the drivers over and over but no luck.

The auto detect software just gives me the:"We were unable to find a driver for your system, no supported AMD hardware was detected"

PS: With all due respect please read everything i wrote above,
i get the feeling that you read it little by little as much of the information you have given me are already answered on my first post, i have no hostile intentions against you, just a friendly tip.

Thanks.

I did read all of your posts, though I will admit to missing part of the PS where you said that Device Manager can't see your Radeon card.

Have a nice day.

Driver backups have nothing AMD related at all.

System restore is just a blank page.
