I am continually having a problem with staying connected to the Internet during idle periods on my IBM desktop. I am running Windows Xp SP2, and am connected via cable modem (Time Warner Roadrunner) with an ethernet cable. Usually, just right clicking the connection icon in the tray and selecting Repair corrects the problem, but occasionally I have to reboot the machine. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is time consuming and annoying.
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?
