PC keeps restarting


We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.

Have you made any changes prior to the issue?

The PC may restart automatically if the updates are being installed. If the updates are installed properly then follow the below methods and check if the issue persist.

Method 1:

I suggest you to disable automatic restart under system failure.
This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.
Follow the below steps.

  • Press Windows + E keys on the keyboard to open File Explorer.
  • Right click on My Computer/This PC and Select
  • Click on Advanced system settings
    on the left navigation pane. (Enter the admin credentials if prompted)
  • Click on the Advanced
  • Under the Startup and Recovery,
    select Settings.
  • Uncheck the option
    Automatic Restart under System failure.
  • Click on OK button and close the window.

Try to use the computer now for some time. Check if the computer is restarting now.

If the issue persist, follow the below method.

Method 2:

sfc /scannow

Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Note: If you are not able to repair some files after performing SFC scan, I suggest you to refer to the point 3 “Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details
are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log”. Under the section “Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)”
to repair the corrupted files after performing SFC scan.

If the issue persist, follow the below method.

Method 3:

I will suggest you to check if the issue occurs in Safe Mode with Networking. Follow the below steps:

Step 1:

To start Windows 10 in safe mode:

  • Search for Settings from the taskbar and select it from the search results.
  • Select Update & security and click on Recovery.
  • Go to Advanced startup and select
    Restart now
  • After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot
    > Advanced options > Startup Settings >Restart.
  • After your PC restarts, select a startup setting as Safe Mode with Networking by pressing the corresponding number.

If the issue does not persists in Safe Mode, then perform a Clean Boot to check if any third party application is causing the issue, as Clean Boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

Step 2:

Put the computer in Clean Boot and check if it helps.

A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program in Windows.

I would suggest you to refer the below Microsoft help article on How to Perform Clean boot.

The steps for Windows 8.1 applies well to Windows 10 also.

Disclaimer: Please reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot by referring above article.
