Graphics card problem causing games to run slow Tags: Radeon Games Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: March 17, 2012 1:57 PM in Graphics & Displays Share greatchicken March 17, 2012 5:00:09 AM Hello I have a problem with my graphics card Few days ago, all of my games started running really slow for no apparent reason I looked around and found a suggestion that said it was probably due to some corruption in graphics card driver It suggested that I should reinstall the latest driver, and I did It seems to have half worked... It's much faster, but it still is not as fast as it used to be Specific game I play is Napoleon Total War, and before, the game ran very smoothly on ultra settings Now, when I'm on the campaign map or play battles, the game lags on the same setting For example, when characters are moving on the campaign map, it lags every step, where as it was very smooth walk before. I don't really know much about computers and I'm quite upset because a game that I've been waiting for is comming out next week Under display adapters at device manager, there are ATI Radeon 3000 graphics and ATI Radeon HD 5700 series, so I'm not sure which one my computer's running on But, I don't remember seeing ATI Radeon 3000 graphics on that list before I reinstalled the driver Could anyone make any kind of suggestions that may help?

The ATI 3000 is your onboard graphics. The 5700 is your video card.
