A recurring lesson is that fitting another GPU is as rare a thing as you'll ever see. The second half of the lesson is to get it right the first time.

Not only is very difficult to upgrade a laptop's gpu (damn near impossible on most notebooks - especially those with shared/hyper memory)...but to shoe-horn a 7950gtx on a 15.4" frame is just plain crazy-talk.

for one thing, the voltage requirement would blow your adapter and regulator; plus the heat would fry your board.

That being said, it IS possible to mod some dell 14-15 inch screen models with the 7800gtx...but you better know darn well what your doing.

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?
