Coaxe to Laptop

by leah_1174 / June 28, 2008 9:08 AM PDT

This fall I will be a college freshman, and the dorm rooms have a cable connection provided by the university. I will not be able to afford a TV, and was wondering if there was any way to connect the cable directly to my Sony VAIO laptop.

Yes you can get an adapter that inputs to a USB port and hooks to coax but they aren't cheap,shop around for a good buy. would be a good starting point.

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?
