    Will restarting the computer a lot (about 8 times ) damage the laptop?

    Will restarting the computer a lot (about 8 times in succession) damage the laptop?

    I am just restarting the laptop normally from the sign-in screen buttons. Would that damage the laptop or just add wear and tear on the parts inside?

    Hi, you have a SSD, so you will have no moving parts issues. Just a lot of CPU processing and disk activity.

    There are no moving parts other than if it has a platter drive but those are made to take that kind of wear these days. The only thing that may happen would be the OS develop a error condition from repeat boots over and over in succession not over a ling period.

    Why would you need to?

    A full power off and power back on sequence will increase wear on mechanical hard drives. Full power on restarts should not affect anything, though.

    To open Windows Recovery Environment (RE) three power ons are done.

    What problems are you having with the computer where more power ons are needed?
