Right or wrong, that's a very dated version. No mention of what OS you were trying this on, so diagnosis is pretty much just a bad guess.

Can you use something like Open Office from ?

I don't understand 'systemboard disc'. However, if you once installed it from this disc, you should be able to do so after bringing back the machine to its initial state (I assume you used a restore CD or something like that?).

If the autorun doesn't work, try it manually. Assuming it's on a CD, keep shift pressed while inserting it to suppress autorun. Then look with Explorer if you can find something like setup.exe on it (that's the usual name). Or look in autorun.inf what that does run. It helps to set Explorer (Tools / Options) to show all file types (i.e. not to hide known file extensions) and set the view to detail.

If you get any unexpected errors, you migth try search at or (Internet or groups) with (part of) the exact error message in quotes.

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?
