Lucky me! The nzxt guardian went on sale again so I got it! Free shipping is a blessing because without it I would have to pay 25 dollars more! It came with a free gift as well! Overall this case cost a little over 90 bucks! Too bad I live in California were they tax purchases on the internet yet it is in so much debt with the governator running the show!

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?
