No sound.

And VGA never has HDCP so that's out. You can try the usual HDMI to DVI dongle but sound is gone. To fix this we'd need a reciever ($$$) so the cheap exit is to get a display with speakers.

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?
