Who installed Ultimate?

Installing Windows is tough. Installing Windows on a laptop is harder than bomb disposal. Are you sure the BIOS, motherboard drivers and all other drivers are exactly what the laptop maker wants?

I installed ultimate

I was actually the one who installed ultimate, and although I am not sure about the BIOS, the drivers should be fine, as I downloaded them all from HP's website.

For not taking out your frustration on us. The issue is 99% sure to be BIOS, driver with something added beyond Microsoft and HP's issued products taking up the remaining 1%.

If the machine works fine with the factory load (let's hope so) then it's 99% sure not a hardware issue.

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?
