Without knowing what you have or your exact problem, I would think to change mobo to solve the problem maybe a bit of overkill. What built-in device/s is the problem? Have you already look in the bios to see if it can be disable it there?

But if you just want a faster and better computer then by all mean...but you should also realize it involves lots of work as well. Good luck.

the unremovable card is an intel(r) extreme graphics controller which isn't to good for newer games.and i have looked at the bios and there is nothing also there is no switch on the mobo to turn of the card.

what sort of work? do you mean buying more components or haveing a fiddley job getting the mobo in & out

Onboard Video issues.

If you can't disable, then you fit a new video card and change the Primary or "boot" display to the new card. Some minor adjustments in the OS are next.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
