Computer keeps restarting

by Personwhoneedshelp / March 26, 2017 1:52 PM PDT

My computer restarts itself with a blue screen when I turn it on. It tells me to either restart it again or use other options but when I try to go into the desktop mode, it restarts itself again and I end up at square one. I'm on Windows 10. Can anyone please help me?

Clarification Request
Unlikely.

There are so many causes for this that more details are needed.

However the most important thing (or things) is are you ready to wipe out and start over?
"We only lose what we didn't backup."

Today I find the fast fix is to slip in a new drive and leave the old drive out for later and reinstall Windows. This is your generic catch all repair when working in a vacuum.

This is my consideration about yur computer keeps restarting in software aspects
1. The virus
The "shock" virus attacks also prompts system will start automatically after 60 seconds.
All the activities of trojans from the remote control your computer, including let you restart your computer.
Remove viruses, trojans, or reinstall system.
2. The damage of system files
System files are destroyed, such as under Win2K KERNEL32. DLL, Win98 FONTS directory font when system runs under the basic file was damaged, the system will be unable to complete initialization at the start and forced to restart.
The solution: cover installation or reinstall.
3. The timing of software or software work plan task
If you set in the task bar "plan" to reboot or some work load application, when timing moment, the computer will restart.
In this case, we can open the "start", check the inside have not familiar with the execution of the document or other timing work procedures, check if the shielding.
Of course, we also can directly input "Msconfig" in "run" command select startup.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
