  1. My computer seems to restart every time I turn it on.


    My computer had already been acting slower than usual and there were occasional freezes, but other than that it was totally fine. One day, I had pressed update and shut down on my computer as I was about to go to bed. When I woke up, my computer had lost all its file download, but it kept some of the games I had downloaded on there. I had to log back into everything I had previously had a saved account in and the wallpapers had reset to the default windows. All my folders are empty. I took the time to log back into all my accounts and put back my computer as best as I could back to what it was. The next day, I turned on my computer the same thing happened again. It had said at first that there was an issue and it could not properly login to my account, but after I logged in again, nothing was fixed and everything is still gone.

    :)

  2. Computer not booting to desktop, stuck at Restarting screen

    Hi Fred,

    Thank you for posting in Community.

    The issue might occur if the system is not Shut down properly. As you have already tried restarting the system several times, I suggest you to perform a Power Drain by following the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Turn Off the computer and remove the power cable.
    • Long press the Power button for 15-20 seconds.
    • Plug in the power cable and switch on the computer.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond My computer seems to restart every time I turn it on. :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

  4. My computer seems to restart every time I turn it on.

    computer randomly restarts multiple times

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting your query.

    Let me help you to fix the issue.

    To understand the issue better, please provide us more information.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • When does the system exactly restart? Please elaborate.

    • How did you upgraded to Windows 10 through Windows update or Windows 10 ISO?
    Let’s try simple steps and check if this helps. Follow the below steps.

    Method 1.

    I suggest you to check the settings, if the automatic restart is set on the system.


    • Open file explorer and click on Computer on the top pane.

    • Click on System properties and click on
      Advanced system settings.

    • Now click on Advanced tab and click on
      Settings
      button on Startup and Recovery option.

    • Uncheck on Automatically restart.
    If the issue still persist try the below methods.

    Method 2.

    I suggest you to boot the system in Clean boot state and check if the issue still persist.
    Clean boot process will help you determine which third party program/app that is causing this issue. It could be some other application or programs, which runs on the computer at the background, leading to this issue. Please visit the below link
    on how to perform Clean boot.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Disclaimer: Please go through the section: How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot of the Kb article to boot the computer in normal startup after fixing the issue.

    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.
