Found too many variations on the AS5745PG

But the 4685 is a VALUE LAPTOP. It has the old dual core pentium and is strictly for those that have a need for a laptop at the price. I would never call it "powerful."

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?
