"The E series uses an Intel 845G/GL motherboard chipset"

Did you install Intel's chipset driver package?

Try the .exe at http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Chipsets&ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Chipset+Software+Installation+Utility

Beware that the review only noted 2 usb ports. Once in awhile people spot more on the board and think these are functional.

In closing USB 2.0 support was fixed in SP2. Hope you got it.

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?
