Hard Drive

I'd go with different hard drive than a Seagate. They've had quality control problems on their drives for a while.


"Overall, Seagate drives had the highest failure rates by brand in Backblaze’s environment reaching close to a 14 percent annual failure rate for 1.5TB drives, around 10 percent for 3 TB drives, and 4 percent for 4TB drives. WD 1TB and 3TB drives stayed under 4 percent, while all Hitachi drives (2, 3, and 4 TB) failed less than 2 percent of the time on an annual basis.

Over a 36 month span, Hitachi drives had a 96.9 percent survival rate, followed by WD at 94.8 percent and Seagate way below that at 73.5 percent."

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?
