RAM in iMac G4

The discussions link is a good one, complete with colored pictures.
I don't think it clearly showed where the memory slots are located though.
It's no wonder the poster had difficulty finding a place to put them, they hide underneath the bottom panel of the base!
The users guide has details on installing Airport and Memory.

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?
