where can i go to get help with my computer?
... posting in the more general forum that gets more traffic if someone hasn't been by to answer your question. After you submit your question, you can also "subscribe" to your discussions. If you do this you will get an email alert when there have been any replies, so if you won't have to check back if you have an autocheck on your email.
Looks like the others have pointed you to the "help" forums.
I noticed in your profile that you were not sure about your operating system, perhaps XP.
So, I'll assign you some homework.
Your operating sustem comes on the screen when you boot up (turn on) your machine.
Now, if you still have the invoice that came with your PC (Personal Computer) when you bought it, it should have info about what is on it. How much memory (RAM), what processor (Pentium or AMD, probably), how much HD (hard drive)- that 's where everything is.
So when you go to a Help Forum, give that information in your post. Also any software you have added since you bought the machine. That includes any anti-virus programs. Knowing those things will greatly make answering your questions easier.
Enjoy your time in the CNet forums, and come back to Speakeasy at your liesure.

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?
