Im currently trying to download and install the new Service Pack update for Windows Vista and I keep getting an error code: 800B0100 saying the file failed to install. Any ideas about how to fix this issue and how I can download and install this update?

My audio disappeared a month ago.

Problem: No audio, prompt says "No audio installed." Also, System check - same thing "No audio installed." Soundcard status ok. How can this be? Bought January 26, 1998, had sound until a month ago. Could not update & no history update recorded, weird. It is programed to update daily at 3 am. Wild ideas: Will update Service Pack 2 or install Win 7 help? Audio is by Teac Tech.

I have a Dell machine, Windows Vista Home Premium, 32-bit, Service Pack 2, Intel Core 2 CPU, 6,600@2.40 Ghz, 2.39 GHz, 2GB RAM, TimeWarner Roadrunner Cable modem service standard, and I am protected by Microsoft Security Essentials and AVG ANTI-VIRUS&ANTI-SPYWARE. Dell Photo AIO Printer 926.

Win System diagnostic - compatible with Win 7, not sure with printer.

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?
