Why not tell the details? That's the error code (something like 0x0000006E).

2 days ago. This was my answer: might give useful insights. Or not.

A search for 0x1000008e on these forums (using the search box on the top of the page) gives 3 other hits. So it's a little bit strange we have 2 now in 3 days.

If you think it's overheating:
- see if there's an option to measure the CPU temperature
- open the case and set a fan blowing into it. Does that make a difference?

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?
