Why is my video performance bad?

by ZoBnPURPZ / February 16, 2011 11:45 AM PST

I cannot run my webcam, and watch videos online or even offline with videos in my folders at the same time, I used to but my computer guy has done work but the only thing he switched was my motherboard.

What would I need to upgrade, or what else could the problem be because it was never slow before.

Supply what it's made of, as well as who installed Windows. I hope you understand that without details you won't get good answers or any.

As to the windows install, knowing about the install, the drivers used and other software matters. For example, some may install a toxic combination. Example at http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6122_102-510824.html Just like you, this member wanted to overclock but in the end it was the software installed that lead to the slowdown.

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?
