Computer starts back up after shutdown and sleep issue

Ever since I built this PC, when I click shutdown by the start menu it shuts down for a second then reboots. LAN setting is disabled in BIOS to disable wake up from it, and the power button is set to shutdown. I also disabled all other devices from waking up computer. Also when I try putting my computer in sleep mode, it will also start right back up to the resuming windows mode, as it normally does when starting a computer up from sleep mode. Any ideas please tell me. Thank you all in advance.

Installing Windows is not that easy and all it takes is one driver to crash on shutdown and it will restart.

I can't tell if you set Windows to restart on crash or if you checked the Event Viewer. Sorry, but your issue is well worn with no specific cause or cure. But folk by the boatload have seen it.

Also, if I shut it down the second time. It will stay shutdown. If that helps. Thanks!

Not really.

It just repeats the same worn area without diving deeper. Did you change it to stop instead of restart as well as learn the Event Viewer use?

At the time of shutting down (event viewer)

I just never had a BSOD on my PC yet.

But it looks like the old crash on shutdown.

If you can't put your finger on it, it's time to make this a warranty issue. There's some bad part or bad instructions about drivers and more. Some motherboards do this for a reason I think make a fine warranty return situation. That is, in today's world why would we expect end users to know about firmware updates and driver hunts?

I booted in safe mode, shut my computer down and it stayed off. Does that mean it's a driver/software problem?

I am not getting much feedback from you about changing Windows restart on fault setting.

In reply to: Yup.

Uncheck restart on failure a while back
