Sony Vaio PCG-3G5L Shuts down repeatedly

by Surfanet1 / May 2, 2011 2:16 PM PDT

I have a laptop Sony Vaio that shuts down after about 20-30 minutes of use. I adjusted the settings so that it would never turn off or go to sleep. This does not help.

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?
