The last discussion.

http://www.48bitlba.com describes the 127GB limit in XP (home or pro) and how it's addressed in later versions. You might have a SATA drive (again, details missing in this discussion) and the error is one you might see if you don't follow the maker's install notes and even seen with an out of date BIOS.

But at this point it's not clear where the error is since there are no clues to work with and nail down the issue.

i recently took my rig to geeksquad at bestbuy to see what they could do. they ran multiple tests until they came across any error. the first one they found was a USB failure. (not important i dont think). due to this they switched out miy current DIMM of ram and replaced it with one they had. all tests after this went fine. i am getting new ram. will this help at all?

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?
