Buttons on the monitor?

Do you see the little buttons located on the bottom of the monitor? See them? Look down...there you go. Play around with those for awhile until you get the screen how you want it.

Some monitors have an Auto button. If you push that, the screen will usually fix itself to fit the screen. If your monitor doesn't have an Auto button, you will have to adjust the screen manually using the buttons.

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?
