  1. Windows 10 Desktop will not restart or shut down


    Two days ago I noticed that I could not shut down or restart. Sleep still worked. I searched for a solution and found the DISM and sfc sequence. I tried to open a command prompt as administrator and it would not open, but after some time, perhaps 5 minutes, it did open. I ran the sequence and it said it found some corrupt files and repaired them. After this, shut down and restart worked for a day, until yesterday, when the problem appeared again. I again ran the sequence, but no corrupt files were found. Unable to shut down, last night I put the computer to sleep. This morning I awoke it and tried to restart - it worked.

    Random shut down and restart??

    Computer: Intel (R) Pentium (R) Dual cpu
    E220@2.406hz
    2.42 GHZ, 2.00 GB of RAM
    Windows xp

    Ever since I replaced the fan (with heat sink) the computer has randomly shut down and then restarted, at first during streaming, and now, will shut down and restart anytime. I tried to replace the graphics card to no avail. *Confused Windows 10 Desktop will not restart or shut down :confused:*Mad Windows 10 Desktop will not restart or shut down :mad:

    One suggestion was to replace the RAM.

    Any suggestions on how to repair my computer?

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
