    Hi Everyone,
    I'm currently running a four monitor screen set-up. Recently my main computer screen started freezing on me. It would work all day and then the computer screen would freeze on two of the four screens. The page would get blurry, and you could barely make out what you were looking at. The pointer mouse when going from screen to screen would only work on two of the screens instead of all four. I unplugged the power on those two screens and then plugged them back in. I switched the different jacks to see if it was those two particular monitors or those two particular jacks on the computer. I did a Malwarebytes test, and Avast test, RKill followed by ADWCleaner, and nothing negative came back. Right now my computer is running fine, but pretty soon it will freeze and I'll have to reboot. It now takes about 6 reboots before it begins working in the morning. Each reboot allows me to get a little further. It takes one or two to get to where Windows will even load the entire way, before I'm able to get on the internet. My graphics card is updated. I'm updated on windows update. I'm updated on Java. My computer monitors are Samsung, and they recently had an update when I ran windows update, but the download didn't help. I don't know if it's the motherboard, the RAM, Bios, or whatever else. Any guidance is appreciated.

    That's a wimpy graphics card. You might consider upgrading to a better one. The GeForce GT 720 is my recommendation.

    It supports up to 8 GB of RAM. You might consider adding another 2 GB to the current 2 GB in it.

    What's the brand name and model number and wattage of the power supply? I'm guessing it needs an upgrade.

    If you want to power 4 monitors, you need a new computer. The entire architecture is too old and underpowered to handle it.
