What was your performance before you installed the ATI driver? Were things choppy as they are now ?
I have recently started using an ATI video card and find the standard driver sufficient.

well the problem was i can't get a screen at all. it was blank, so i turned on the driver and it worked. i installed the new version and it got choppy. i turned it off and it went blank again. i re-installed it and booted into low-g mode but when i turn it back on now it gives me an error message "system error: installarchives() failed" so now i can't even get it working.

By 'choppy', do you mean anything like this:
