Forgive me, I 'm not sure if this is the correct forum. First here is my setup: AMD 64bit dualcore 6000+, PCI express SLI ready ASUS raidmax board (cant remember model) Nforce setup on board. 6gig memory, SLI ed Geforce 8800GTs 350mb each. (if you need anymore system info just yell).
I recently switched from 32bit window XP pro to Vista Ult 64bit. My drivers for basically everything were dated so I updated all to include geforce 8800 GT sli forceware 181.22 and newest Nforce force ware. I have configured for SLI just as the windows drivers but notice a huge drop in graphics performace. Processor is working much harder with games such as world of warcraft. With XP setup I ran at about 80-100fps at full res settings. Now at half rez settings i run at 60fps sometimes 30. I am convinced my operating system does not see my second graphics card even though the nvidia softeware says SLI is active. I am far from a guru in this sort of thing and am open to all suggestions. second question- do i install games in the win 32 program files or thewin 64 files? (if there is some kind of board switch to go from 32 to 64 bit let me know)
On a side note i stoping running dream scapes in the background as it was pushing my processor at 30%.
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?
