Yes. Put the model and main issues in title. Say in post full specs and what you've done.

Do the Malwarebytes scan in Safe Mode if necessary, run SFC, establish a Clean Boot and replace any bloatware AV with recommended.

Reboot to tap ESC key to see if there are Diagnostics.

Do I need to tell my Windows 7 desktop (do an uninstall or similar action) before disconnecting current Dell wide screen monitor to try out an older Acer monitor from an XP OS ? Both are flat panel LCDs. Does it matter whether I disconnect the power cable first or the other cable ?
