I have no issues with it on my vista machine (well less often) but on windows 7 partition I log in and start up World of Warcraft or even when i use firefox and i lose connection to the internet. It also does it if I transfer a file from one drive to the other not even using the internet and/or router. I'm completely lost i have updated the drivers and reinstalled them god knows how many times and I'm getting furious with it i would like to be able to use win7 for everything.

Windows 7 would still require me to install drivers for the motherboard and more. Many thought Microsoft would install said drivers or update with a click of a button.

Sadly, we still get to hunt and install these drivers. Your post is light on that detail.

But my question was about the motherboard and such drivers. Many either didn't know or hoped they could avoid finding and installing the usual drivers just like we've had too for decades.

I read where you write "all the drivers" but that's not exact enough here. And you see the results.

PS. What is it?

PS. No make, model so no one may comment or write "try this driver."
Sorry that Microsoft and the industry made it complicated and kept it that way.

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?
