i previously posted here about the same problem () and i took his advise by cleaning the inside of my computer. It worked for a while and then it started re starting again. But sometimes I was actually able to stAY logged in for about 10 min before it freezes. This used to never happen on this computer. Someone told me if i installed new hardware that might have been the problem but i didnt get anymore info about that (i just got a dvd-rw drive from pioneer) any help is appreciated thanks!

If the cover is off with a cooling fan pointed at the case does that help?

It's a test to see if it's heat related.

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?
