I've installed on F:\drive

by tontoe / June 24, 2006 5:44 AM PDT

I had to use fdisk and format my hard drive for various reasons but I must have done something wrong I installed my operating system xp pro onto the hard drive but now when I go to my computer I find I have another drive called f:\drive and this is now my major drive (the biggest) I still have c:\drive but it is not very large so f:\drive has become my main drive where my operating system and all files are. Apart from this my pc's working perfect, can this configuration do any harm if it can is their any way to make c:\drive my main drive again? Thank you.

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?
