Lost sound on computer. I have a Dell Optiplex GX270, Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 build 2600, Realtek AC97 Audio is the enabled, working correctly, default sound device. I tried updating, roll back & reinstalling driver, downloading driver from Realtek & Dell and system restore, still no sound at all. I ran DxDiag, Sound tab, Test Direct Sound, full accelaration, stereo, 8 bit, 22 Khz from a software buffer and ALCXWDM.SYS not digitally signed. All audio components are there but seems Windows does not recognize them. Can someone please tell what I'm doing wrong?
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?
