My Games Have Been Lagging and I think it I because of some settings in my AMD control center. The problem is all my settings disappeared all I have is power and performance. There is no gaming option or anything. PLEASE HELP!

I did not recently buy a new graphics card and upgrading my drivers did not do anything to the amd control center

did you use ccleaner or driver fusion to uninstall ccc before the update, it might have detected the ccc and not reinstalled it, so you will need to uninstall ccc with one of the programs then go to amds website to download again

I Can't find ccc on ccleaner I go to tools then uninstall but I can't find it. Also after I updated (or tried) my drivers it became really laggy

if you ran it and it did not detect anydrivers this way try this one

http://www.guru3d.com/content-page/guru3d-driver-sweepe...

this one is specific to graphic drivers and will detect and get rid of however make sure you rebot and go to amd website as before and download new drivers, that fact now that it is even laggier is a sign that it is a confliction issue with the drivers

I used that second link to uninstall my drivers and then I installed them again, I will tell you the results in the morning. One last thing how do I get to the amd control center. when I right click it no longer gives me the option.

it should download with the graphic drivers for your card

try to do a window search for catalyst, or type msconfig in window search run it and go to start up programs.....if it isnt in either of those try to run driver sweeper to see if it is installed (dont uninstall) if for some reason it didnt download and your sure it is not on your computer go here to down load(at bottom of page)

windows told me the driver may not have downloaded right shouldi download it again. Also I typed catalyst in search this pc bar and 3 things came up and they all said catalyst_mobility 64 bit utl and I also saw something that said catalyst mobility and when I clicked on it it said it was not supported on my hardware.

Well I figured out I as installing it wrong so I installed in right. I restarted my pc and when I right clicked my desktop I saw catalyst center option but when I click on it, it loads but does not open.

can you try to run it as administrator and try to see if it is enabled in your fire wall. if both of those dont work disable anti virus(not while on internet) try to run ccc and see if your av is blocking.
