im running windows 7 pro. 64 bit on a custom built asus p6x58d motherboard and a western digital 500GB hard drive, all the components are brand new. i've had it for 4-3 months now and for the past 2 or so months the system would fail to start on a weekly basis. chkdsk would run pretty frequently when the system is started and always find errors (orphaned files). any attempt to fix the start up failure hasnt worked except for re-imaging my C: drive from the backup. i've run the windows memory test and it checked out and i ran seagate's DOS hard drive test and it checked out ok. the hard drive runs at 42 degress celcius which isnt ideal but neither is it catastrophic so im really lost here.
there are no warnings other than chkdsk running at start up. after about a week of no problems (except the chkdsk running near the end of the week) turning it off probably means re-imaging it (at which point it runs perfectly).
my other hard drive (the back up) has yet to experience an error.
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?
