    Or make the switch to Linux. Been running Mint on my old Dell and it’s waaaaaay snappier and better performing than Windows ever was - all for the low, low price of free!

      idk, I’ve never been able to make it work well. always some issues with drivers. imma blame it on dell putting some shitty proprietary hardware that no ones written drivers for yet?

      I’ll try again when I build a new PC without any proprietary hardware

        I heard more recently Linux has been making strides in driver support, so it’s making me consider Linux for my main rig. FWIW, it’s been working perfectly on my Dell laptop but that doesn’t have a dedicated GPU, only an iGPU, so I’m with you on blaming it on drivers :p

          I doubt its GPU drivers, bc nvidia themselves even have official drivers, but idk. mainly my second monitor was the issue. from black screening, to stuttering
