Why is my keyboard acting weird?

by funnyvostro / September 30, 2015 7:43 AM PDT

The keyboard in my Dell Vostro is acting weird. Every time I log into the administrative account most of the keys don't work. So I log out and go to the guest account and the keyboard starts working. (most of the times). Only then I can return to my account. Is it a keyboard problem or an OS problem? I use Windows 8

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?
