my computer

well I have managed to swap Files from Drive "C" to drive "F" now by removing other drives becomes drive "D"

However, yes there is always a but, i wondered why my monitor a dell U2312HM IPS monitor the picture did not fill the screen size.

Tried everything , and I do mean everything.

Found out that it is not only out of production BUT will only cover the full screen up to Windows 8.

Yes you guessed it I have windows 10 and it is not compatible, even tried running it in compatibility mode, no good won't work, or at least i could not get it to work.

So it looks as if it is a trip to the shops for the latest version

Re: my computer

Richard

I have been down to PC world and hard a very knowledgeable assistantexplained the problem and he straight away said it is the graphics card.
At the moment using a 1gb msi GTX560ti twin frozen graphic card bought in April 2012
It has been giving me "sprinkles" ( pixel dots on screen) quite often.


So ordered from PC world via internet an updated version A geforce GTX
1050ti graphics card which still has the DVI outlet I am using at the moment as well
That should come tomorrow so will have to wait and see. it has good reviews for what i want

He was right it was the graphics card. New one installed and now have a full screen
Not only that but no third party program to smooth out videos, now no juddering either.
