Computer restarting

Hey!

I have a problem.Well, my mom told me yesterday that her computer starts restarting right after windows loads.When u start it,it goes normaly,untill it comes to the part when Windows says that some change happened before and in wich mode would i like to start it.It gives me following options:
-Safe mode
-Safe mode command point
-Safe mode networking
-Last good configuration
-Start windows normaly.

No matter wich option i pick it starts loading that screen where that line keeps moving to the right and from left to right again.Then there is this blue screen for half a second and it restarts.I saw one topic when someone had the same problem but there was no answeres.But this happened to me also a month ago.So i took it to a friend,who said that there was some kind of resolution problem.In the end he fixed it and give me advices what to do next time.He said that when i start the computer that I keep pressing F5 and i will get this whole list of things what to choose.He said that i must pick ''enable VGA mode''.I did that but nothing changed.But somehow he did fixed my computer while i cant fixed moms.I would ask for some orders what should i do,how can i do it,what i must press to do it becouse im a total computer newbie.

Regards

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?
