I recently been experiencing some slow-downs with my graphics card. It is an ati radeon 4670 hd ddr3. The first thing I did was that I decided to upgrade to the latest driver. So, I had 10.6 and I wanted to upgrade to 10.9. When i upgraded, everything was fine except the catalyst control center wouldn't work. So i uninstalled the ati drivers using the add or remove program and the device manager to remove it completely. I still had my 10.6 driver so I re-installed it. What was weird was that it said there were some errors while installing. I don't know what the errors were but the ccc was working well. Ever since then, my graphics card was acting slow. I played Rumble Fighter and it seemed way slower than before. I played Runescape and it seemed way slower than before too. I really don't know what the problem is. So if anyone will be kindly enough to help me.

System Specs:
AMD athlon™ 2 X3 435
2.90 GHz, 2 GB of ram
ATI Radeon HD 1GB 4670 DDR3
Windows Xp pro
127GB Hard Drive

Just the fact you get an error message when installing your driver should point you to it being the issue.

Uninstall your present drivers and Control center and use a program like DriverSweeper to completely get rid of all leftover ATI drivers and reinstall your drivers.

Hope this will help
