    My laptop always restart after I shut it down - Windows 10


    When I shut down my laptop running Windows 10 it always restarts, which is very annoying because if want to turn it off I have to brute force it with the power button. I got my laptop from PC Specialist about 6 months ago and the issue started happening 2 months ago. Do you have any ideas of what is causing it ?


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Computer: Intel (R) Pentium (R) Dual cpu
    E220@2.406hz
    2.42 GHZ, 2.00 GB of RAM
    Windows xp

    Ever since I replaced the fan (with heat sink) the computer has randomly shut down and then restarted, at first during streaming, and now, will shut down and restart anytime. I tried to replace the graphics card to no avail. *Confused My laptop always restart after I shut it down - Windows 10 :confused:*Mad My laptop always restart after I shut it down - Windows 10 :mad:

    One suggestion was to replace the RAM.

    Any suggestions on how to repair my computer?

    Laptop restarts when i try to shut down

    What methods have you used to shut it down? The usual ways are to open Start, click the power icon and then choose Shut Down. Alternatively you can go onto the desktop and press Alt+F4 to open the shut down/restart dialog. Third,
    type "shut down" into the Start search and click the "shut down" entry.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    Disconnect all the external devices (printers, scanner, USB (universal serial bus) drives, etc...) Except mouse and the keyboard and then try to shut down.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to run in-built Power troubleshooter and check. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Select Troubleshooting on the left pane, click on
      View All.
    • Click on Power to run the troubleshooter.
    Method 3:

    If the above method doesn’t help, I suggest you to reset and restore all of the default Power Plans back to their default settings. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • At the command prompt, type powercfg -restoredefaultschemes, and then press
      ENTER.
    • At the command prompt, type exit to exit the Command Prompt window.
    • Restart the computer and check with the issue.
    Method 4: Clean boot

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are

    causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot:

    Note: After clean boot troubleshooting steps, refer to the section "How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot"
    in the provided link to return your computer to Normal startup mode.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you

    My laptop always restart after I shut it down - Windows 10

    laptop auto restart even after after shut down of the laptop in windows 10 1703.

    Hi Joydeep,

    When Windows 10 restarts after selecting Shutdown, this could mean that something crashed during the process of shutting down which made the device restart. We'd like to ask a few questions to help us out on resolving this:

    • Did you try to shut it down again after it goes back up?
    • After installing Windows 10 Creators Update, did you check if there are any updates running in the background?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Did you encounter any errors while installing?
