Video Card replacement

Hi, just want to ask you guys out there if a AGP video card with 2x/4x/8x bus standard can be used in a motherboard capable only of 4x bus standard. Just wanted to know because i find it difficult to find a video card with 4x bus standard maybe because its a little bit out dated. Thanks

Yes you can use a AGP 8x card in your 4x slot. You may not get top performance out of the card though due to it being capped by the AGP 4x standard.

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?
