'Sorry, there was a problem submitting your post. Try again'

There seems to be a (temporary) problem submitting posts.

If you submit a post and receive the following error message....

"Sorry, there was a problem submitting your post. Please try again." ...

Kindly ignore it. The post will go through the first time. "Refresh" the page and it will be there.

No doubt, Lee will keep us updated. Happy

JP are you still seeing this issue?
by Lee Koo (ADMIN) CNET staff/forum admin / September 24, 2012 2:12 AM PDT

Please let me know.

We had CNET site wide outage earlier this morning, but what you may have experienced was issue with our site leading up to the complete outage of CNET.

Hopefully this won't be occurring anymore, but if it does, please let me know immediately.

Thank you for reporting it and we apologize for the disruption!

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?
