For months I've been having trouble starting my 10 - 12 year old PC. It goes through the POST test nicely, displays the Windows logo, then shuts down. That sounds like a video system problem to me, so I updated my video card to something a little more current. When I opened the system, I saw for the first time the true resolution of my monitor, and it was lovely. Then I opened Microsoft Solitaire! LOL!!!!

It tries (and fails) to work with the full screen, but the poor cards just can't keep up with the cursor! BTW, there are 618 levels that I know about... Further exploration shows that other functions are having problems, as well. Scrolling web pages is erratic now, since the upgrade. I suspect that the older spec PCiE bus can't keep up with the demands of modern video cards. It appears that I've finally worn out this 2010 - 2012 PC that was state-of-the-art back then. They just don't make them like they used to...

Back then I dealt with TigerDirect and Newegg. Are they still good sources, or are there newbies I should know about?

<edit> Re: the title, when I tried Solitaire with the new configuration, my first thought was of Lucy, in the Christmas movie, telling Charlie Brown, "You killed it, you blockhead!!!!"
Will Rogers never met me.
