I've seen that error on non-Dells so isn't the question best asked of the software maker that is presenting the error?

What makes you think this error is Dell's fault?

because when i did a google search on the error message i got loads of people complaining about this problem with their Dell Inpsiron 530s.

As to your comment, how do i know what software is giving me the error. The emssage is a page long, but doesnt indicate where the rror is coming from.

To prove it's Dell's fault we put the machine back to it's delivered configuration and retest.

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?
