I just ordered a Acer Aspire Laptop: Intel Core i5, 2.66 GHz, 4GB mem, 64O HD, AMD radeon graphics card
...On the 2nd day of having it on my desk the screen began to flicker, then freeze and eventually went black. The applications i was using at the time was merely the yahoo home page. I did not think much of it the 1st time it happened. But it has persisted- 2nd week in and it has occurred 9 times which has resulted in having to unexpectedly shut down the whole computer [holding onto the power button ]!! On one occasion, i was listening to music on iTunes and the screen went out- though i was still able to hear the music playing and the next song...so the computer was moderately functioning...
I checked the events log in the control panel for what may have caused such, the reoccurring ID's are: 41 (unexpected shutdown), 4001 (WLAN),4101 (display) and 1101 (audit drop to 0)
I have also scanned for any viruses through Avast anti-virus.
Thus...i am at a flux...i am not quite sure where to go from here.... I removed the last program that i had installed which was Skype...so far in the past 2 hours there has been no problem... (knock on wood)...
Any ideas as to how to swiftly remove the problem?
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?
