I think i have an energy star bios because whenever the information screen pops up, you can see the logo, but it stays there for less then a second, so I can't read the rest of it. The problem is I can't get into the bios. It says press <F1> for setup, and it won't let me in. I have tried other common buttons (delete, esc) and they don't work. I am reall concerned that somthing may be wrong, and if that's the case, i'm kind of screwed.

energy star is NOT a BIOS, just that it is compliant with the rules.

IF <<F1>> doesn't allow you in, try swapping keyboards, I think that if the sibnals are bad, it won't get them to the computer

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?
