It sounds like a hardware issue, but just to be sure I'd download a Linux LiveCD distribution like Knoppix. If you have the same problem with Linux, you are likely looking at a hardware issue. Since it affects both internal speakers and headphones, most likely you'd be looking at a new motherboard to fix the issue. Once you see how much that costs, you will likely overcome any reservations you might have about USB based sound cards.

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?
