Did you ever resolve this issue??

I reverted to an older sound driver due to a crackling noise on some games. Since then, windows never booted.

Formatted and tried to reinstall... whenever i get to setup xp the screens appear with the exact same errors.

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?
