  1. Operating system all files wiped clean after restarting pc


    I restart my pc and windows 10 operating system gone. Pc boots to bios. My ssd and hd are completely wiped clean. I can't turn pc off. Once I reload windows 10 pro and programs have to leave pc in sleep mode it will wake ok no issues. I can't figure out why if I turn off pc having this issue. I am running Ryzen 2600 processor, Evga GTX 1060 graphics card, Evga 600 watt PS trident memory 16gigs, WD blue hd 500gb and Adata SD 120gb. I use simple programs core temp, add blocker, edge, outlook mail, gigabyte app center with Aorus apps. That's at about 100 gigs of space used including windows files. All help appreciated.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

  3. PC keeps restarting

    Hi,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.

    Have you made any changes prior to the issue?

    The PC may restart automatically if the updates are being installed. If the updates are installed properly then follow the below methods and check if the issue persist.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to disable automatic restart under system failure.
    This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.
    Follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows + E keys on the keyboard to open File Explorer.

    • Right click on My Computer/This PC and Select
      Properties.

    • Click on Advanced system settings
      on the left navigation pane. (Enter the admin credentials if prompted)

    • Click on the Advanced
      tab.

    • Under the Startup and Recovery,
      select Settings.

    • Uncheck the option
      Automatic Restart under System failure.

    • Click on OK button and close the window.
    Try to use the computer now for some time. Check if the computer is restarting now.

    If the issue persist, follow the below method.

    Method 2:


    • Press ‘Windows + X’ Keys on the keyboard.

    • Click on ‘Command Prompt (Admin)’ to bring up an elevated command prompt.

      Note: Click ‘Yes’ if it prompts for permission.

    • In the command prompt type in the following commands one by one and then press
      Enter.
    sfc /scannow

    Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Note: If you are not able to repair some files after performing SFC scan, I suggest you to refer to the point 3 “Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details
    are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log”. Under the section “Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)”
    to repair the corrupted files after performing SFC scan.

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

    If the issue persist, follow the below method.

    Method 3:

    I will suggest you to check if the issue occurs in Safe Mode with Networking. Follow the below steps:

    Step 1:

    To start Windows 10 in safe mode:

    • Search for Settings from the taskbar and select it from the search results.
    • Select Update & security and click on Recovery.
    • Go to Advanced startup and select
      Restart now
      .
    • After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot
      > Advanced options > Startup Settings >Restart.
    • After your PC restarts, select a startup setting as Safe Mode with Networking by pressing the corresponding number.
    If the issue does not persists in Safe Mode, then perform a Clean Boot to check if any third party application is causing the issue, as Clean Boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    Step 2:

    Put the computer in Clean Boot and check if it helps.

    A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows.

    I would suggest you to refer the below Microsoft help article on How to Perform Clean boot.

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

    The steps for Windows 8.1 applies well to Windows 10 also.

    Disclaimer: Please reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot by referring above article.

    I hope the above information helps. Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

  4. Operating system all files wiped clean after restarting pc

    My pc takes for ever to shut down when i restart

    Suggest cleaning up your startup list .There may be many services / Apps you can remove on startup which is not needed on boot or during shutdown.
    Before you shutdown the Pc check what is running in Task Manager as a program or service in not killing the process on shutdown

    Would suggest cleaning up running apps and services -Autoruns, StartupMonitor,HighjackThis,
    Malware Scan - Malwarebytes,ADWcleaner, Combofix
