Ugh, I had that happen on my phone once. Try uninstalling your browser, doing a full AV scan/fix and then restart your computer and reinstall your browser.
Okay yes its ChromeUsually occurs when you are using Google chrome, so I'll assume you're using that for now.
If so, your browser is out of date and you have both Java options enabled.
Chrome uses its own Java plugin so there used to be 2 options, one for the Java on chrome and from your PC - but the latest chrome builds removed the 2nd option and fixed the shockwave bug altogether.
It wouldn't contribute to your PC being slow by the way, that would be a different concern but I'd have to know if you're using an SSD of HDD.
To update the browser you need to go to the chrome menu (3 little bars, top right corner near your visible plugins) and there should be an update chrome button in the menu.Okay yes its Chrome
So what do i do? How to i update?
Its slow loading i disabled some other plug ins last night as that was google was saying to do but will slow before this. Just the loading of internet pages is really slow, everything else seems okay.
To update the browser you need to go to the chrome menu (3 little bars, top right corner near your visible plugins) and there should be an update chrome button in the menu.
If there isn't, try the about google chrome button in the menu and it should check your browser version for you.
Also the plugins you added, if you didn't need them then I would suggest deleting them from the plugins page.
Sorry, should be 3 bar menu -> help -> about google chromeI didnt add any plug ins, so im not sure whats happened
Im with windows 10, it said there is no updates required when i clicked on the 3 bars top right. Nothing came up so apparently it should all be updated then.
Wheres the about google chrome button? Its not in the 3 bar menu?
Appreciate the help your giving
I can't remember how to do it but sometimes I remember the mouse buttons switching. Just right clicking on the desktop and see if you can find any settings there that may have been changed.Ok
I have this problem with my Toshiba satelite touchpad. For some reason, sometimes the right button thinks its the left button (i,e occasionally when i click the right button, it acts as left click) I don't know why this is.
usually i can deal with it, but its costing me a lot of minesweeper games
Warping? If it happened to one card you could excuse it for a manufacturing fault, but if your system has killed multiple cards due to "warping/sinking" it might be worth looking at why it's happening.Alright, so I dunno if this is the right thread and I'll prob make a new thread anyway, just looking for quick answers.
My first graphics card was kinda warping/sinking down, it eventually stopped working properly so I replaced it.
The next one I got is a smaller card, due to not wanting to deal with any issues (case/mobo sort of small)
This one recently blew out so I'm getting a new card and I'm trying to decide on which one.
I realised that my first card weighed roughly 1.7kg+ which is crazy.
I have lined up a few replacements and need your advice.
Made for smaller boxes, mine isn't small, but as above - had concerns about it sinking.
This one I assume would have no issues at all.
This one is slightly cheaper and very slightly bigger but shouldn't have a problem with it. Not sure if the specs are better than the first though, seems like they might be?
This last one is the most expensive and definitely the biggest - however it seems to only weigh under 900g.
This might be alright and it seems to have better specs, but not sure if its like 40-50 dollar specs, as well as the very slight risk of it being quite bigger than the others.
For the record, that first card was about 30+cm and 1.7kg, the middle ones are I think about 700ish grams and 17-18cm.
Last one is 27cm and 900ish grams.
Let me know which one would be the best out of the 3, I don't mind getting something slightly more expensive or even cheaper if it's worth it.
I think there potentially could be an issue with the slot.Warping? If it happened to one card you could excuse it for a manufacturing fault, but if your system has killed multiple cards due to "warping/sinking" it might be worth looking at why it's happening.
Are you actually securing your cards properly? Maybe it's worth looking at a case that has supports/holders for video cards.
To answer your question though, the differences between the 3 cards are minimal, just get the cheaper one.
Yeah unless you've got some whacky PC case the graphics card fan should face down, and even if something did fall into it, it would most likely fly straight out, or cause the fan to make an amazing grinding sound that you should pick up on pretty quickly. If a card actually blew up it could be a motherboard/PSU issue.......... or you just have sh*t luck with graphics cards.I think there potentially could be an issue with the slot.
The first graphics card I had was very heavy and it seems like the slot doesn't seem super secure.
I have no clue how the other one broke, someone mentioned something could have fallen into the fan but I don't think so as the fan is facing the other way.
Yeah it seems like I'll grab the cheapest, not too heavy, big and as you said the difference between them all is minimal.
When the second one broke I was only on the computer for about 30 minutes before it just switched itself off.
Smelled burnt plastic so I left it off for a while, aired the room out etc.
When I turned it on something just blew on the graphics card as I had the side off to check, and it wouldn't go back on.
Everything else is completely fine though.
