This machine does not stand out in any way. It looks like every other value machine out there and for the price is OK but the ONE THING folk try and may get unsettled about is the video system (there is no "card") is good enough for Aero, video play but not for today's games.

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?
