by mitchparis / May 24, 2007 4:14 AM PDT

So ive purchased my dell inspiron 6400(t7200 processor, 2 gig or dual channel 577mhz memory, 160 gig sata hard drive, nvidia geforce 7300(I dint choose the right one during my order, wanted ati x1400)and 15.4 inch screen). The computer commes with something wonderfull. Media direct! NOT THAT GREAT! but its good for music and movie and stuff like that. Anyway, there is a button on the computer for booting media direct when windows isent started. I have this horible probleme, if i press it its a crash button. Screws everything up because i dont have it installed and i dont want it. Anybody now how to deactivate this button.

I would do this.

Boot up with the factory disk in and press a key to enter.

Tell it you want to install

do the agreement

after that, it will give you the option, choose r for recover.

It will fix the programs that you have trouble with. Takes about 30-40 minutes.

Remember to get your Windows Updates.

Button should now work correctly.

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?
