I am really worried about what is wrong with my computer. After I do a complete shut down and wait for a few seconds. My computer will boot itself and come back on. I am really concerned about something shorting out and causing a fire. Would this because of a motherboard or hard drive?
PC Starts Back Up After Shut Down
If you have Windows 10 and your computer keeps restarting, here’s a workaround. If you are able to log in to your computer, just try disabling auto-restart. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type the following and then hit Enter:
In “System Properties” window, go to “Advanced” tab then click “Settings” under “Startup and Recovery” section. In “Startup and Recovery” screen, under “System failure” section, check “Write an event to the system log” and then uncheck “Automatically restart.” Click “OK” then see if it works. On the other hand, if you cannot log in to the computer, try booting in Safe Mode with networking option.
Turn on and boot your computer. After booting, press and hold the power button so the CPU will turn off. When it turns off, turn it on again then press and hold the power button to turn it off. Keep doing this until your screen displays the following message:
“Preparing Automatic Repair”
Wait until the scan is finished then go to “Advanced options,” “Troubleshoot,” “Advanced options,” “Startup Settings,” “Restart” then press 5 on your keyboard to select “Enable Safe Mode with Networking.” After booting in Safe Mode, try disabling auto-restart.
