Uncertain whether to go up or down re trying other driver versions. Do problems indicate need for new video card?

Because you are a gamer indeed, it?s time to switch to another better video card. Have a look at this 80 Video Cards of 1999-2003: 3D Benchmarking. Although it was done almost one year before, you?ve got the idea.

Good Luck,

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?
