    windows 8.1 full shut down


    I use a sound card esi maya44 pci, and have been told to turn off fast start up hybrid shutdown

    Is that what the following achieves and does that force full shutdown when using the start/shutdown on screen

    Go To power options in Control Panel, Click
    Change what the power buttons does, Then Click Change settings that are currently unavailable, Un-tick the Turn On Fast Startup (recommended) Checkbox.

    Or does this only apply to pressing the power button, and shutting down via screen prompts is a full power shut down

    Is 7)
    "7.To Turn Off "Fast Startup" for a "Full Shutdown"
    A) Under Shutdown settings, check the Turn on fast startup box, and click/tap on the Save changes button. (see screenshot below step 6A)"

    Meant to say Uncheck the Turn on Fast startup box?
