When it rains it pours

by Boothbay / August 6, 2008 11:17 PM PDT

I just reinstalled XP yesterday and started to add my aol browser and broadband setup...all went well. This morning I added my tv tuner card cause i removed it during installation and I booted up my system and all i got was no vga. My computer was on, i checked the power cord on both ends of my tv monitor..I also have hdtv on this monitor and naturally talking about a desktop. I removed all cables, opened the case and checked that all cables are secured. Still no vga. I can't even get the post readings..but then why would I if there is no connection of the vga. Has anyone any ideas to get it to boot?

Doesn't sound like a XP issue.

open case and remove the CMOS battery
let it out for about 30 seconds and then put it back in.

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?
