AMD ATI Radeon driver issues

Hello, I was trying to get AMD Catalyst Control Center to work because there were some issues yesterday and everything worked but not CCC, so I did "pacman -Rdd libgl" because there was some errors with libgl and then i installed Catalyst with "pacman -S catalyst-dkms catalyst-utils" and after that I did "aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=above" because I wanted to try if it worked with two monitors and it did so I removed /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then I did "aticonfig --initial" and then restared.
It's now that the problem occurs, first I got blue dots on my desktop but only on my desktop, and I got passed that by bumping up the refresh rate to 120hz instead of 60 hz. But the problem is that everything is laggy and feeling slow and in CCC in the monitor settings it says "resolution prefered: 4000 x 4000" and "refresh rate: 160" and I don't know if that have to do with anything...

Re: AMD ATI Radeon driver issues

Me and you may be having the same problem here. Does you catalyst control center allow you to adjust scaling or anything? I do not even have access to controls. If I set display to 1080p and reboot it resets itself. Does yours do this?

Re: AMD ATI Radeon driver issues

Re: AMD ATI Radeon driver issues

This was resolved in another thread by promoting a catalyst server with an up-to-date pkg. Also try

packer -S catalyst

Check the AUR
