This is usually a heat or overtaxed power supply issue. I don't get a clear picture of the machine. Is it some HP or other name?

Is that 85 C? Sounds hot.

Do try this with the case cover off to sniff out if some part is too warm. Some builders look at temperature sensors but the truth is that we don't have them on every chip or part so the cover off and maybe the big fan test sniffs out if it's heat.

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?
