Hey, i wanted to play serious sam 3 and it advised me to update my drivers.

So i went to AMD's wepsite and downloaded the one that i thought would be good, while installing, it went blue screen and crashed. When i turned it on again, my computer was different, the color theme went white, and it all was generally very slow and laggy(such as when i move windows around and watch videos). So i downloaded AMD's tool to find the perfect driver for my computer. I installed it, restarted computer, and it was the same as before. Then i used AMD'S tool to uninstall all drivers, and then install new. Still no improvement, and still the same white color scheme and laggy, also i get messages that i dont even have an Amd driver/or its defect when i try to open up CCC.

My graphic card is Amd radeon HD69xxM series. My operating system is Win 7 64 bit. My computer is a Hp Pavilion DV7.

Im really frustrated about this, so if it was to be fixed i would be very very happy.
