I have been having some problems with my wii. It has been making a small circle indent on almost all of my games. So i sent it in to get repaired. I get it back and its still doing it. I just want to know if its happening to any other of u guys. If you fixed the problem tell me how.

Small circle indent? Maybe you should elaborate. If you're talking about the sensor, the best thing to do is check the troubleshooting guide that comes with the system (I believe it's in the operating manual). I've found that if you have an open window in front of the TV (facing you), that it disrupts the signal. Also, if you have alot of wireless computer peripherals, i've heard that they may or may not have an effect. Like I said, check the troubleshooting guide.

I'm guessing they mean the optical drive is scratching up their game discs. Sort of like how some 360 drives have been known to do.

Which is a manufacturing defect, and there's not much you can do besides send it off to Nintendo.

I suppose he'll have to keep sending it back until they get it right then, huh?

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?
