Video Card Help

by Redfurst / April 25, 2004 11:14 AM PDT

I was wondering if this Video card is a good deal or not. I currently have 256 ram and some dell video card that isn't that great. I have a flatpanel screen and I was also wondering if the card would be compatable with my screen. Any help would be nice.

Do as Proffitt says. Check out all the specs before you buy. Compare those specs with your current card (it would help to tell us what you currently have). If you have a Dell, chances are that the video card is USUALLY integrated, especially if it's one of their "budget" computers (under $700). If you're looking for speed, the GeForceFX 5200 isn't too fast, at least for DX9 standards. If you have a little extra cash, go after the GeForceFX 5600. Search http://www.pricewatch.com for the best prices.

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?
