All of a sudden the computer will loose its 800x600 16 bit color and go to 640x480 16 colors. After a little working around pop up says its the main display adapter. I have Intel 82810E Graphics Adapter. Monitor is Gateway EV700B. System restore will take me back sometime and everything is OK. I hae reinstalled all drivers, reinstalled ME, fixed all resource conflicts, and still all of a sudden screen will change resolution. Any help?
Thanks

I usually have to reinstall the motherboard then the video drivers.

I installed a new motherboard. It is a "Brooking
Gateway Flex ATX WH11 MS 6312". And then all the drivers. Still does it, although is working OK now.

Did you get that board off the clearance market?

You may have discovered why the boards were such bargains. I know of no fix for that one.

But do try latest motherboard, then video drivers.

You may be right, I got it from ebay, suppose to be new, still in wrapper. Can't get one from Gateway.

Ya know, this is an object lesson to all of us, I believe. Watch out what you buy cheap, at a flea market or other no-brand sale.

I think you may be lucky to have only one problem!

misunderstood Robert's first statement. My interpretatation is to reinstall the motherboard DRIVERS and the video drivers, not install a new motherboard .

Of course with your new motherboard, if the problem were to recur both mobo drivers and video drivers.

I've installed all the drivers I know to install.
I guess I'm out of luck. Need a new one anyway.

MSI MS-6312 (Gateway/Brookings)

Search ms-6312 at Badcaps.net.
This board was notorious for bad capacitors.

My system will boot fine.
If I don't do anything it will sit there for hours.
If I start clicking on things it reboots.

I just ordered replacement capacitors, let me know if I should do a follow-up after I install the new ones.

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?
