Hi...ive had this problem for a while now...I'm going to copy and paste my message from a different forum to see what you guys think:
Hi, i had a problem with my computer in this thread->(http://www.techsupportforum.com/hardware-support/motherboards-bios-cpu/166533-e6600-screwed-new-post.html), and someone told me to do a clean install of Windows.
I put in the CD, wiped my old partition, and at first chose to do a quick reformat...but it was taking a horrendous amount of time to copy the files, so i turned the computer off. Next, i wiped that partition, and created a 30gb partition and did a full reformat to see if that was the problem, but it wasn't. So far, ive been installing for 2.5-3 hours and its at about 40%. The Dvd-drive led indicator basically comes on and flashes, and i can see the files changing on the screen, but then the led will go off after a few files and stay off for about half an hour or longer before it flashes again. I have absolutely no idea what the problem is, here's my compute specs, everything is new:
Core 2 Duo E6600
600w GameXStream PSU
Nvidia 8800GTS 640mb
Western Digital 250gb 7200rpm hd
2 x 1gb G.Skill RAM
Samsung DVd Burner
Ok so basically i cant get XP to install, i even left it running overnight for 8 hours and when i woke up it was at 53% done, this is durign the copying files step by the 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?
