Thanks

Maybe try a compatibility mode with windows XP or something.

I mean your drivers. Just because it's new doesn't mean there aren't new drivers available. Check the websites of the products and search drivers. This usually fixes a lot of technical issues.

Example: Go to the Nvidia website and search drivers, then install the latest version available.
