Battery back-up UPS surge protecter?

by avalon2001 / July 14, 2005 6:17 AM PDT

I could use help as to where I might purchase a battery back-up surge protecter for my home theatre system that has a HD DLP tv. I've had several power failures recently with the TV on and the fan unable to cool down the DLP lamp when it goes off. Walmart was suggested but I struck out there.

Well most places that sell computers ( except Wallmart)
try Best Buy, Circuit city, comp usa, micro center, FRY's

Because it's not a computer, you may want to look into Panamax, I believe they have their UPS available now, it's designed for A/V systems, so it will also protect against surges in the power and coax lines (or satellite)
A local Audio video shop should be able to help you.

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?
