The speed of your connection. All laptops can break or overheat today. It's part of the game. You can help it along by not blocking air vents and not dropping or beating on the keyboard.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
