    Shutting Down Doesn’t Fully Shut Down Windows 10 (But Restarting Does)


    Ok so I'll try to clarify as much as I can.

    When I ''Shut down'' either I'm holding ''Shift'' or not. It signs out but I can Still hear fan and Power Led is on, even after couple of hours... it can goup to 12...

    For Shutting it down Completely, I have to hold Power Button for couple of seconds.

    Here's what I did so far;

    1. I Disabled Hibernation into BIOS
    2. I did ''powercfg.exe /hibernate off''
    3. I checked in Settings, System , Power and Sleep and look for ''Fast Startup '' option to check it off. (But the option wasn't there). P.S. I did the troubleshoot on 2 pcs, 1 HP Laptop and 1 Gateway Desktop and both didn't have the option and it seems that over web that this option solves the problem most of the time.
    4. I've wasted boiled eggs *Sad

    Any Hints?

    :)

    Random shut down and restart??

    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 Shutting Down Doesn’t Fully Shut Down Windows 10 (But Restarting Does) :confused:*Mad Shutting Down Doesn’t Fully Shut Down Windows 10 (But Restarting Does) :mad:

    One suggestion was to replace the RAM.

    Any suggestions on how to repair my computer?

    Windows 10 Pro (fully updated) will not shut down properly

    Hi Chayan,

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • How exactly are you shutting down the computer? Is it from Start menu?
    • Did you try shutting down by pressing and holding the power button?
    • Did you make any recent changes to the computer settings?
    • Did you plug any external device to the computer?
    I would like to inform you that it is bit difficult to pin point on the exact reason behind the issue unless we get the answers for the questions asked above.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to press and hold the power button and check if the computer able to shut down completely.

    If the issue persist try unplug plug the charger\power cord from the power source and check if the issue persists, this may also arise due to any fault in the power source.

    If the above steps doesn’t work, I suggest you to check if the fast startup option is enabled.

    • Access control panel by right clicking on the Start menu.
    • Choose Power options.
    • Select Choose what the power buttons do and check if it is enabled.(Disable it if enabled)
    Please let us know if you are able to shut down the system properly after following the above steps. If the issue persists, please reply with the required information. We will be glad to assist.

    Thank you.
