    Windows 10 Hangs in Shutdown, Then Forces Improper Shutdown


    Hi! This is my first time with the forums. I have been experiencing an issue for quite some time. When I shutdown my PC it goes through all the usual things (shuts down usb periphs. monitors, etc) and then you would expect it to turn off right?; Except.. it doesn't..... not until some time has passed. After about 5 minutes the switch in the PSU cuts off the power.

    I noticed that in these 5 minutes I can hear a repeated whine up sound coming from the hard drive area. That led me to update my Intel Chipset SATA RAID Controller. Sadly it didn't fix the problem (it did have an update though).
    Windows Version 1909, OS Build 18363.592.

    I also had an issue with the wireless chip (Intel Duel Band Wireless-AC 3165) It would stop working after while, wouldn't be able to turn it back on. If I tried restarting it would BSOD. fixed that issue though, as I have not encountered it recently. I'm pretty sure the two aren't related but I mentioned it anyways because I may be surprised.

    Any help is highly appreciated!! Windows 10 Hangs in Shutdown, Then Forces Improper Shutdown :)

    Win 10 improper shutdown

    For previous versions of Win OS, if there is improper shutdown, a scandisk screen will come up after restart. However, in win 10 after improper shutdown, it just go right to Windows w/o prompting for a scandisk. Is this normal and why ?

  3. Win 10 hangs on restart and shutdown

    No, that's rocket science. I'm posting with 10 already, so the problem was solved two days ago...Thank you.

    The Windows 7 shutdown screen simply decided to hang and I finally did a hard shutdown and started it up again, after which it was painless.

    PC is Suffering Unexpected Shutdowns

    Most important detail to me would be whether these shutdowns are sudden, in which case it's likely a short or PSU issue (capacitor aging maybe?) or graceful windows style shutdowns, which suggests software interference.

    It could also be overheating components if it's a sudden shutdown. What are your thermals like?
