You don't want to know how much to fix out of warranty.

Look around and see laptop, desktop makers changing boards, fans and entire machines over this. This is just like a new car that died on the freeway. Do you take it to the dealer or to the shop and pay for repairs?

YOU WANT THAT ISSUE on your service log. This way at one month after warranty you call in and tell them of your troubles and you have the records to prove it.

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?
