  1. Problem with my computer


    I have a 2 year old dell laptop and today I tried to shut it down however it is not working. I dont want to drain my battery so I plug the charger but even when the charger is plugged in the shutdown function is not working. I tried the shortcut as well in keyboard but also not working. This is the only computer I have so please help me.

    Need some advice on computer problems.

    Run HDtune (free version) on you hard drive. but most likely that the problem. You can also test your memory with Memtest86 as suggested above

    You didn't list your OS

    Does this computer build have compatibility problems? Opinions welcomed!

    Lets start with what you're going to use this computer for, not what you want to put in it.

    Rules/steps to building a computer (in chronological order):
    First rule: Determine what your needs are.
    Second rule: Define your budget.
    Third rule: Pick parts.
    Fourth rule: Review parts several times.
    Fifth rule: Buy said parts.
    Sixth rule: Build it.

    You are on rule/step 1. Go through the list until you're done.

    Problem with my computer

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
