Notice that OS? (FreeDos)
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 22, 2008 6:06 AM PDT

This is what some ebay offerings come with and while it lets you boot the machine there is no Windows or Linux or other familiar OS (for many) to use.

You may see this -> "C:\>"

Ya. That's the reason this laptop is available for 4-5k lower than other machines having similar specs.

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?
