Could you be a little bit more specific, when you say it doesn't safe mode start, does it just say at the choices window? or does it not fully load, or just it blue screen again.

Also if you could give some kind of Error code associated with the blue screen (ex: Physical Dump of Memory, Missing System Root File). That way its easier to determine what exactly is causing the issue.

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?
