    My PC performs double shutdown


    for the last two weeks, my computer has been having a weird shutdown process:

    When I press the shutdown button in the start menu, everything would close like normally until the screen goes black at the end and then, my components would shut down, but LED lights and fans are still on, spinning. They stay on for about 5 seconds and then the PC would turn back on fully (all components working) and almost immediately turn off again, this time completely.

    I am worried that such a double-shutdown process could wear my HDDs as they have to spin up and down twice during the shutdown.

    Sometimes, seemingly almost randomly, the PC won't even shutdown - after the components go off, the fans and LEDs would keep working for about 20 seconds and then I hear a BIOS beep and the PC turns on and goes into boot.

    This started happening after I installed Windows 10 AND plugged my new internal HDD, so the culprit could be one of them, both or none.

    PC works fine besides the shutdown and I don't see any BSODs or such.

    My specs:

    Intel Core i5-4670
    Gigabyte GTX 760 OC
    WD Blue 1TB
    WD Black 1TB (the new one)
    Gigabyte B85M-D3V Motherboard
    EVGA 600B-600W PSU

    How to shut-down PC when the start button and the task manager are not working on Windows 10

    Hi Yvonne, a couple of ways to do that . . .


    On your Desktop use this Keyboard Shortcut

    Alt + F4


    Right click your Desktop, choose New - Shortcut

    In the location field paste this:

    Shutdown -s -t 00

    Click Next and name the shortcut Shutdown

    Click Finish

    Double clicking that new shortcut will shut your PC down

    Windows 10 Shutdown slowly

    Original Title : Windows Performance Recorder

    My PC is running Win10 and is very slow to shutdown. I read the article on Windows Performance Recorder and ran it to see what was happening during shutdown. I have a WPR file with the results, but do not know how to "post a link to the results on OneDrive
    to the community discussion." I apologize for my lack of understanding on how this works; this is my first attempt. I'm not even sure how to find out if anyone responds to my post. Sorry, again.
