Drive letter assignments

by Bill_lclark11 / March 12, 2008 5:50 PM PDT

I recently installed a new drive into my system. I imaged the old drive onto the new drive, for a long story of my set-up and how it went down her is the post. I have a three partition drive, first one has xp second has vista third has media files. before imaging XP thought it was drive c and vista V: and vista thought that xp was D: and vista was C; Now vista thinks xp is C: and vista is D: so it cannot find my profiles and things are broke. How can i tell vista what the drive letters used to be, i tried using disk management in computer management, but it told me it could not reassign the letters because the disks are in use. any help would be welcome, Bill

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?
