You will find UserCPL at the top of the forum menu. Select it and then select "Edit System Spec" near the top of the left side menu. Most of the specs are in the webpage that you linked, but it still would be good to fill in the specs for future posting. Here is a link to ATI (AMD);

Graphics Drivers & Software

Just compare what you find there to the driver shown when you select the driver tab of the component's properties in the Device Manager.

Check your Event Viewer>Administrative View; look for persistent errors.

LOL Story of my life. I went to that site to check on the driver. Mine is a Radeon HD 3200 -- and the options are 3000 and 3400. NOW what do I do?

There seem to be a lot of persistent errors, but I have no idea what they mean, unfortunately. Some of them are clear -- problems with the Internet connection, as Comcast tends to suck -- but the others... I have no idea.

Jamieresearch - you need to research these errors using Google. This is how you get control of them.

Start with the ones which appear to relate.

Also at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools\Advanced Tools study the Performance logs and Generate a System Health Report.

You can also check the integrity of System files by typing CMD in start search box and running sfc /scannow

If this gets you nowhere, then run a Repair Install

If the repair install doesn't correct it and you cannot find the cause, clean resinstall and add Programs and settings back one at a time with a System restore point until you determine which caused it.
