My problem is my computer is slow and bogged down at times and takes up to 5 minutes or so to boot up and also standby don't work. Everything is new besides the CPU and the video card that I see by looking this card it don't support Windows 7 I am just wondering what could be the cause of this problem I talked to 3 different computer shops and 2 said it's my video card that is causing my problems but the third said that this card will not cause problems besides maybe problems playing games. I plan to buy a new video card but if I do will this change my problems or would there be some other cause that I don't see. Also I built this system myself thanks for any help you can give me.
