Windows 10: Laptop Won't Shut Down after Windows 10 Upgrade Solved

    Laptop Won't Shut Down after Windows 10 Upgrade

    I have an HP laptop. I upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.

    When I click the Shut Down, it looks like it will, but loops back on back to my Desktop. So then I just hold down the power button to shut down. I always try to click the Shut Down first.

    I haven't had any start up problems, but I'd like to be able to shut down properly.

    Try disabling Fast Startup, see if that fixes the problem. How to Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    It is possible to crash your pc at shutdown and restarting for this reason. Check events to see what happening or update your drivers to w10 compatible.

    Glad to hear it. Many, many people have been adversely affected by Fast Startup. Beginning to think the default should be disabled.

    I was having the same problem with my HP laptop after upgrading to Windows 10. It seems to be issue with IME driver. I found a way to fix it from youtube:
