VIA C7 processor

I know you guys are all sick of my posts, but I have another question.

I found an interesting chip released in May by VIA. While it won't set performance records, runs only at 20 watts at full and 0.1 watts at idle. However, I can't find a place to buy it. I was wondering if anyone found a place to get it.

It takes awhile from announcements to products.

I got an e-mail from VIA

"VIA is now working to bring out a VIA EPIA Mini-ITX mainboard featuring the new VIA C7 processor, which we hope to announce later this year."

Note: VIA doesn't sell processors directly like Intel or AMD. Instead, they are soldered onto the motherboard. So you have to buy the mobo with the chip.

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?
