Used System Restoration on ME - Now there's NO SOUND

by elizabethlynn / March 5, 2005 1:22 PM PST

Restored ME several months ago. Never got sound to work. Device Manager says CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER AUDIO PCI 128D (WDM) is working properly. went through ALL sound Troubleshooting checks - I should hear something. Play music in media library and Windows Media Player's Visualizer SHOWS sound! but I don't hear any. yes, everything is hooked up and has power. Put in Resotration CD to see if there's something else that needs to be install - it shows the SOUND VIDEO & GAME CONTROLLER: CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER AUDIO PCI 128D as UNinstalled - so I installed it and restarted - no sound still and restoration disk still indicated it is UNINSTALLED (after another reinstall even). I'm at a loss and don't know WHAT to try next!

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?
