Default Lower performance after driver update

I recently upgraded my graphics driver, only to realised that i am getting worse, almost unplayable rates in my games now whereas performace was not an issue before.

It seems as if the drivers are not being detected or something.

I tried reinstalling the graphic drivers again as well as per motherboard drivers but am still not getting any changes in performance

Basically, my rig is not performing as it should or was performing at after i messed around with the graphic drivers

Can some1 check if i have missed anything or done anything wrong? Below are my pc stats,thx a great deal

Uninstall your GPU/Chipset drivers. Boot into Safe Mode. Run Driver Sweeper (link Below). Clean all drivers. Reboot into normal mode, install chipset and graphic drivers, reboot.

Sometimes the new drivers don't work as well as the old ones (Trust me, I would know, I am still having the same problem, except I am on Linux) Do what 95BlackGA said, except install earlier drivers
