...tell us more details about what other components exist in your system (HDTV? ), makes, models and precisely how they're all connected. We aren't telepathic ;).

I can't guess if you are hooked up with HDMI and if the TV is HD or not.

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?
