    Windows 10

    Computer powers off on cold boot. Works second time and with restarts.


    Ive been having this problem for about 2 weeks now and its finally starting to annoy me. On first boot my computer just shuts down when it gets to to the windows 10 loading screen, right before the loading circle pops up. it doesn't power itself up again but when i do hit the power button it boots up fine with no problems.

    It also works fine when i reboot. its just that first cold boot. ive reverted the BIOS back to defaults and removed any AHCI drivers (was using Intel rapid storage drivers)

    here is a blurry video of that happens.

    only thing i can think of thats changed recently is aside from general updates but but installing a new CPU HSF and removing some annoying virtual drive software.

    any advice would be helpful.


    solved this is issue by disabling fast startup in windows 10.

    possibly overheating or bad power supply? I had a problem with a bad power supply a while back, was fine before booting to windows but as soon as it began to draw more power when windows started it would shut down.
