Do any of these have video capability? Which one is better?

XSI does not. The new T1i does though, and as far as I know is the cheapest Canon DSLR with that capability.

I purchased the Canon SD880, and I think it's really great.
I'm looking for something a little more advanced regarding video, and I was recomended a DSLR. The T1i is brand new and pretty expensive...

The SX110 was another option, but that would be almost identical to the one I already have maybe(?)

If you want better video or surround sound recordings, then you should get a HD camcorder instead. The DSLR video is better than a compact, but still does not have the level of control as the HD camcorder. On the other hand, DSLR can let you have the opportunity to interchange lenses (though the sound is subpar compared to a real camcorder).

DSLRs don't adjust the autofocusing, you have to either do it manually or keep hitting a button each time you want the camera to refocus.

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?
