I've got really low performance/FPS on my computer at the moment, what happened is;
I think what happened is I tried to upgrade to the latest CCC/ATI driver, 9.15 I believe, from 9.14, and it said 'mom.implementation could not be loaded', and 'CLI.implementation' or something, so I uninstalled that, and went back to 9.14, between doing this, I have needed to remove the virtumonde Trojan from my computer, and in the mix of doing so, may have deleted/altered some registry/system files, i was perhaps a little too militant about it,
Once i had removed it, the computer would not start for more than a few seconds at a time I think the CPU was overheating (90 degrees on idle :S), but i got that down with fan speeds, now it's stable, one of the power cables to the video card is loose (in the ATX? connector thingy, the yellow one - but I pushed it back in, and it's in securely, as long as there's a stable connection, which I think there is, should be okay right?, but the fan is spinning etc,
However I'm only getting like.. 20fps in 3dmark06, and the same in COD4 etc, it's really laggy, as if the card's not using/utilising the drivers or something.
So I can't play any games !
Anyone that can help? =].
I was getting 60+ FPS in these scenes in 3dmark the day before, it's lost like 40 fps top end, and 10 fps bottom end (60 - 20), (20-10) :/.
I have manged to get catalyst 9.4 installed again, and changing the clocks, it said they were at minimum when instaled (which is normal. i.e. - no overclock), so i increased them, no change :/.
I was thinking power supply initially, but theres so many routes - virus, CPU over heating, graphics card overheating/shorting/cutting out from loose connection or unstable connection, power supply gone.
Computers been on for 24 hours now though, and 55 degrees on the CPU, so that seems okay.
