Seeking help for can't shut down and no sound

by blancmix / October 20, 2014 4:44 PM PDT

Hello everyone,

I started to have this problem since 2 months ago.

Everyday the first time I turn on my desktop computor, after 30mins to 1hr several problems will occur.

1. Can't shut down computor.

2. Able to press ctrl+alt+del, but no responce when press task manager no responce.

3. sound system down. Started no sound for whole system. ( press Right bottom corner sound control panel also no responce)

4. Many problems start to no responce and hanged.

I kept my windows 8 to do those updates regularly I wonder if the problem is caused by those updates I did 2 to 3

months ago so I searched the net and uninstalled update KB2962407 but no use. The source link is below.

I really can't find any other solution but to seek help here.

A million thanks for reading through my long post!

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?
