Question about Dell Dimension XPS PC Desktop
My computer is sluggish, but the worst of it is when I'm online, the graphics and some text is distorted and unreadable. It seems the pixels are greatly exaggerated, plus the computer will sometimes freeze up. I know it's an old computer [Dell Dimension XPS R400].
It may be a corrupt driver, if you are running xp then go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware>device manager and look down list for graphics adapter. Click on the '+' sign select your graphics adapter and right click and delete. Restart your pc and and xp will find your graphics again and automatically install the drivers. Also check you have no spyware if it is sluggish and clear all your temp files and internet cookies.
