I recently installed Windows 10 Enterprise (clean install, not update). Since then, i am experiencing a weird problem. Most of the times the laptop (Dell Inspiron 15) is not shutting down properly. The screen goes black but I can hear the fan of the cooling base working. Then I need to press the power button for 2-3 seconds in order to shut down my machine. Even if I do nothing for half an hour, the fan continues working and the laptop starts overheating. I turned off fast startup but the problem still remains. I have performed all of the latest Windows and driver updates. Any helpful suggestion? Thank you in advance.

What is your hardware and what drivers are you using? Is computer shutting down properly in safe mode? Try "sfc /scannow" and also "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" in cmd as admin


Do you have Intel Virtualization Technology enabled in the BIOS? This is a known issue at the moment and Microsoft are aware. Mine does the same at the moment, and if I turn off Intel VT it works fine.
