    PC will not power off when I select Shutdown

    My PC was shutdown suddenly by power cut off so now it had some errors

    Hi,

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve the issue.


    • Have you updated all the Windows and optional updates?

    • Have you updated all the Drivers?

    • What is that exact error message?
    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Run the
    Power troubleshooter.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with power. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Power.

    Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select
      Control panel.

    • Change the view by option
      on the top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting
      and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Power
      troubleshooter.

    Step 2: Change the “Power plans” settings.

    A power plan is a collection of hardware and system settings (like display, sleep, etc.) that manages how your PC uses power. The power plans you can use depend on the kind of PC you have.
