the posts to your question will appear right here as mine did when i wrote this. also you can tell the forum to track this thread, meaning when a new post is made, it will e-mail you telling you there is a new post.

To answer your question about games on Vista, wait until the Service Pack and then try installing the games again. Vista has compatibility issues with a lot of things. if you want to play the games, just make your system dual boot of XP and vista. google these words: XP VISTA DUAL BOOT. you will find some good posts from pcmag.

Hope this helps.

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?
