Advance settings for what? If I bring up the color correction settings in the nvidia control panel there is a place to adjust the gamma correction, but no where to turn it off. I did try playing with the gamma corection and it did not effect the quality of video playback.

You missed the part about gamma for overlay.

If you were at the part about gamma settings, there is a selection box on that screen, you must select overlay before setting the gamma to off.

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?
