The 2 year speedbump

by esa1044 / June 26, 2005 10:38 PM PDT

I've had my computer for 2 years and, as usual, it's starting to "act weird", for lack of a better word. This happened with my last computer, as well. I get random errors or I'll have to reboot to get programs to work that used to work without issue. I don't think it's a driver issue, and I run Norton Anti-virus scans once a week. Anyway, is there any diagnostic/fix it utility that's worth the money? I mean, something 'plug and play' that doesn't require extensive tech knowledge? It's starting to become very annoying - I was getting errors this morning just trying to download from my digital camera.

A fix may be elusive.

Assuming your running an MS o/s check for errors in event viewer first of all. You can search MS website for solutions to the event id and source.

Check the vendors site, it might that a bios upgrade or other device driver should be updated now.

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?
