Can't install video drivers at all.

PRINTABLECOUPON 4,947 729 September 14, 2015 at 08:05 PM
Downloaded the new driver from ati and its not installing anything besides some hdmi audio driver and the installer manager. No drivers or the actual catalyst control center.

Tried rebooting different versions i'm completely lost as to what else to try. I know the drivers are out of date/nonexistant since all the media players I try stutter really badly if the file is a mp4 and i'm getting 20fps doing furmark while normally i'd average 60ish.

This was probably the reason for the lag on vlc and all the others I found they were out of date but when I removed the old ones new ones would not install at all.

Uninstall that and try driver booster. It is all about trial and error and if that dosnt work. Start updating uld programs as well, Also uninstalling stuff you dont need anymore

I find the ATI drivers kind of confusing to download. It's easy to get the wrong thing. You might double check you downloaded the correct full driver. Last time I looked it was over 100mb.

I installed them directly thru windows device manager but they feel slow even starcraft is lagging I dont know why. Might have to just build a new computer since this one is 4 years old.

Where is that CPU usage coming from? Also, when you say the system is clean, how did you scan it?

You could try restoring to a system restore point from before all this happened.

Couldn't find a system restore point earlier to restore to couldn't find any which is weird but anyways.

Scanned with malwarebytes
avg
wise registry cleaner

svchost takes up the most at 40-60%
followed by system idle process
Next is chrome

that's the top 3.

Only using about 3gigs of ram.

Here are system specs it might help

i5 2500k
16gb ddr3
internal 64gb ssd
external 1tb.
external 1.5tb.
2x gigabbyte 6850 crossfire setup.

I'm on mobile right now, but there's another recent thread here that has instructions on how to use process explorer to find out the service behind svchost which is causing high CPU usage. Look up that thread and see if you can figure out the service. That will help diagnose further.

Not sure why fdrespub is active since network sharing is off could that be causing it?

A lot of times its Windows Update that is downloading in the background. Thats why I use notify of updates but don't download until I want to. Chrome is also sometimes a hog.

Ha, why install them through device manager. Just use the ATI installer.

So it's the last svchost process that's consistently using your CPU? That is an odd set of services to be causing problems, and I have no why they would be causing problems.

You could try disabling them one by one using 'services.msc', and see if you can narrow it down to a single service. From there, at least you have a more targeted thing to Google. Or I guess if the service isn't necessary and disabling it solves your problem, you could just leave it off.

You may be reaching the point where it would be better to just backup and reinstall fresh, unless you're driven by a desire to figure out what's wrong.
