Windows 10 Turning Off My Montior

by WalMir2013 / August 17, 2015 12:28 PM PDT

So, I am writing this from an ACER Aspire E 15. Crap computer, a fine netbook for email, Facebook and Skype. Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8.1 worked just fine. But now I can't use the laptop if it is plugged ibto a wall socket. If I plug my charger into a wall socket, my screen goes black. The update hs rendered this thing useless. I have to run it on battery until its dead, then I have to wait until the battery recharges. ***?

Have you checked your drivers?

I'd go to Device Manager and check for ! or ? next to any entries. If there, check w/Acer for the proper driver(s).
Good luck.

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?
