This is the machine i was planning on getting.
I chose gateway only because it had what I wanted.
I was wondering if Windows Vista is going to toake up so much memory that i might need 4GB.
Genuine Windows Vista? Home Premium (32-bit)

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?
