Hi this is a very werid question and i cant seem to find a answer to, My dad's computer is next to my Router and my computer is around 20 feet to my room. Everytime i play Counter-strike or Call of duty 4 online on my computer i get around 30-40 ping or latency while on my dads's computer i get around 10-20? why is that? i even changed my computer got a new one and i still have the same problem. i dont know if its my ethernet cable or.. what. or is it just that hes so close to the router. people told me that its not that its my setting i changed my adapter settings to full duplex 100 mb.

There are differences in the machines. Compare them and the firewalls, OS and more. I am not offering to help you find it but pointing to where it is.

The AMD machines require more work on the owners to find current and proper drivers. Tell how you know they are current.

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?
