  1. Computer will not fully restart

    Hey guys,

    So whenever I need an update that restarts my computer or I it needs to be restarted for another reason, when I go to restart it the computer itself stays on but my monitor, mouse and keyboard do not reboot. My screen does not come back on and I need to fully shut down the computer by holding down the power button and fully reboot it from being totally shut down.

    Does anyone know a fix for this?

  3. Computer crashes and restarts periodically

    Hello Kurt,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer. I understand the frustration when things don't work the way it should.

    What is the make and model of your computer?

    What is the anti-virus program on the computer?

    I suggest you to try the following steps:

    Uninstall and Reinstall the Graphics Card Drivers.

    Step 1: Uninstall the Graphics Card

    • Press “Windows Logo” + “X” keys on the keyboard.

    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the Graphics Card
      from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers
      from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and then restart the computer if prompted.
    After the restart, please go ahead with the next steps to install the latest drivers and check if that resolves the issue.

    Update Driver Software from the Manufacturer’s website:

    Step 2: Go to the Computer or Graphics Card
    manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the
    Graphics Card model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.

    I hope this helps you. If you have any further query in future, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.

    Thank you

    Computer will not fully restart

    Random restarts

    when you start the computer up press F8 repeatedly until you get a list of how to start windows, choose do not automatically restart on system failure. if your getting bsod's list what your getting here so we can further help you. IF the system is not getting bsod's and still restarting as you say then i would look into getting a line conditioner for your computer as you might be having power issues.
