computer not getting on network

by mrstooie / June 22, 2005 6:55 AM PDT

Linksys wireless network. 2 desktops, XP home edition with sp2. Both access internet. A sees B but B doesn't see A. B can ping A, but can't ping itself. All correct protocals installed. No hardware conflicts. Both assigned to same network.

The fact that B can't get on network but can ping A must mean something.

Any help appreciated.

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?
