PC making printer noises.

by Anndrrew / February 12, 2016 3:18 PM PST

My computer just started making some very weird noises. It sounds a lot like a printer trying to print. I don't know if it is a malfunctioning fan, but It's definitely not sounding good.

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?
