OLD &NEW, WHAT IT TAKES

by bridgeofblue / March 14, 2007 1:38 PM PDT

My computer is an old machine and much like the old cars I used to tinker with, old machines and new parts take time and research to weld together. Putting the most sophisticated upgrades on an old body is much more complicated than most people think. It takes time to research and plan for this transformation to take place. Vista will not work for me unless I add a few more upgrades to my hard drive. Is the cost of making these upgrades more than just purchasing a new machine with the latest OS. All of us oldtimers know the risk of buying the latest and greatest to add to the oldest and weakest. My advice-go find a good mechanic and heed his advice-and watch what he tries to sell you.
REMEMBER-Developers are after-market product producers and are responsible for making sure their product is compatible with all new OS systems; not the system producer. DEVELOPERS-Do your job or get out of the business.

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?
