I have learned more about my computer at the Fort than I ever knew otherwise. We have so many tech-savvy people here. But all the advice is scattered through different threads, so I thought I'd start one general one where maybe people could ask for help with a problem, and you computer gurus could give advice.
Um, also, I have a computer problem. Mine won't shut down. I click "shut down" and it goes as far as a screen that says "Dell" and there it stays. So I have to shut it down manually, and every time I power back up it says I didn't shut down properly and has to scan stuff.
This is a fairly recent development, and I suspect I'm to blame; for a while, I was just putting it on "sleep" or whatever every night. It would go that way for days, till it started acting funny, or not reviving when I clicked the mouse, and then I'd shut down and reboot. I don't know if that's the reason, I'm just guessing here.
So, anyone have any thoughts on what's going on and how I can fix it?
