  1. "The computer restarted unexpectedly..." error after boot problems


    After updating to Windows 1903 my computer was showing the message "Reboot and select proper boot device". After following the fix listed here I ran into a new problem.
    The first time I booted up my SSD after applying those fixes, I was met with "Windows is updating" screen and its progress was around 48%. After about a minute it restarted itself. Upon booting up I got a message that said "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click “OK” to restart the computer, and then restart the installation."

    Most of the fixes for this problem suggest using shift+F10 and opening command prompt and going to regedit. But I can't access command prompt no matter what I do. Shift+F10 does not open anything. Pressing OK on the prompt simply restarts the computer and brings me back to the same message. Is there any fix for this besides reinstalling? Thanks in advance.

    :)

  3. Computer restarts itself NO ERROR

    Hi Rassias,

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer.

    What is the make and model of your computer?

    If Windows suddenly restarts without warning, or restarts when you try to shut it down, it might be caused by one of several issues. Windows could be set to restart automatically when certain system errors occur. A BIOS update can also resolve the issue.
    Use the information in this document to resolve issues with the computer restarting unexpectedly

    Follow the steps in this section, in order, until the problem is resolved.


    Step 1: Disabling the automatic restart option to view error messages

    Many hardware driver or operating system errors will cause the computer to display a specific error message before stopping the operation or shutting down the computer. However, if the
    Automatically restart option is enabled, an error message might not be displayed despite an error taking place. Disable this option to allow the computer to display the error message.

    Follow these steps to disable the Automatically restart option:


    • In Windows, search for and open View advanced system settings.

    • Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section.

      Figure : System Properties window

    • Remove the check mark next to Automatically restart under
      System Failure, then click OK.
    • Figure : Automatically restart check box

    • Restart the computer.


    Please reply with the results, we are happy to help you further.

    Thank you.

    Getting Error message" The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unxpected error"

    Hi Sarah,

    I would suggest you to perform the startup repair using the Windows 10 installation media from the below link and check if it helps.

    Boot from the Windows 10 installation media and then perform automatic repair and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps to perform Automatic repair:


    • Insert installation media and restart the computer.
    • Select language and click on Next.
    • Select Repair your Computer and click on Skip this drive.
    • Select Troubleshoot and click on Advanced Options.
    • Here choose the option Automatic Repair and follow the prompted instructions.
    Please revert if the computer still does not start.

    Thank you.
