Read The Fine Manual yesterday on such a thing.

It turned out the second beep on that board happens when hardware changes. A trip to the BIOS and then a Save Changes cured it so it beeped once instead of twice. The manual I read was the PDF that came with some motherboard (not years) so it may or may not apply.

Not years was supposed to be not yours. It passed the spell check but sorry about the typographic error none the less.

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?
