I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1150 with Windows XP. A few weeks ago I had a mouse in the USB port and then plugged an MP3 player into the other one to transport MP3s. Everything went well until about 20 minutes after I had taken the MP3 player out of the port. I got a pop up that said there was a power surge on my USB port. So, I took out the mouse, restarted the computer and it went away for a while but came back even though there was nothing plugged in (It still comes up every now and then. I soon discovered that I had no audio either. I went to check and now my computer says that I have "no audio device" installed.
What happened and is it possible to fix this?? It's so frustrating.
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?
