On-board sound card and slow sound

On some MSI motherboards, after the sound driver gets updated it's necessary to clear the CMOS and reset the BIOS.

First turn off the computer. Then clear the CMOS using the jumpers on the motherboard. You'll need to check your manual for exactly how to do this.

Then replace the jumper in its original position. Turn on the computer. You will have to re-set the BIOS if you have any custom settings. The sound should work.

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?
