    PC restarting on its own


    I shut my desktop and printer off last night because of storm forecast. After shutting down I walked by and noticed my computer was on. So I shut it down again and this time waited for it to go black. I thought it had shut down. I came in this morning to start it and discovered it was already on.

    Can anyone help me with why this is happening and what I can do about it?

    :)

  3. Windows 10 -- Issue: computer randomly restarts on its own

    Hello Benjamin,

    To see if any other Third party software is causing the issue, I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run System Maintenance Troubleshooter

    System Maintenance troubleshooter finds and clean up unused files and shortcuts and performs maintenance tasks.

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Type Troubleshooting in the Search box from the desktop.

    • Select the Troubleshooting option.

    • Select View All option and select the
      System Maintenance
      .

    • Click on Next to perform the System Maintenance troubleshooter and follow the steps.

    Method 2: If the issue still persists then,

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
      Enter.

    Step 2: Perform Clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    Disclaimer: Putting your system in
