About 2 months ago, I bought an Acer Aspire 5100 with Vista from Circuit City. Everything has been working well and no problems up until Thursday.
My sound stopped working in Ruckus, iTunes, Windows Media Player and Center. However, it worked online such as YouTube and whatever. I tried everything (that I could do without messing up the computer) and nothing worked. I tried updating the RealTek Audio/Sound driver, but that didn't work. I then uninstalled and downloaded the driver from the RealTek website. It worked fine. Now, a few days later, the sound has stopped completely. Nothing online, nothing in media players. I have uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it countless times, but nothing is working.
It seems to me that I can't get any computers to ever work well enough. There's always a problem. I had a IBM T23 (my first laptop ever; was great until it was getting slow). I then got a T30 (my mom bought both the T23 and 30. Her choices) and that was horrid. Hard drive got fried and then had another one put in and then the battery leaked acid into it and here I am with computer number 3. Both Ts were used and at least 3-4 years old when I got them. The Acer was brand new, never used.
Any ideas as to how I can solve this once and for all?
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?
