Too little detail.

There are prior discussions but without any detail about which OS all I can offer is if we restore it to the factory OS, restore our apps and files if there is no hardware issue it should be fine.

Lucky you,. To be in safe mode you must have booted already. So it seems your issue is already solved.

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?
