specs: Asrock z68 extreme3 mobo, i5 quadcore, radeon 6950 gpu, 8gigs ram, 500gb hdd, 900 watt power supply, win 7.

My machine was in cooled storage for 4 months. Now that I've pulled it out, I am noticing slower performance and low picture quality when running internet and games. I suspect the source of the issue may lie with my Radeon 6950. However there are no unusual beeps, BSOD and the heat transfers normally. I have re-installed the video drivers, removed all the components and used a can of duster but nothing has helped. Tonight I am going to take out the GPU and use my on board to see what happens. Any ideas or suggestions on a resolution?

After a four month rest I'd make it my first task to be sure my security program and my drivers were all brought up to date. Same, same the operating system updates

Keep us posted
