Windows 10: Computer shuts down on Windows 10 startup

    Computer shuts down on Windows 10 startup

    I am running Windows 10 pro and I have a persistent problem. I have re-installed windows 10 about 4 times, and the same problem keeps coming back. When I start my computer, it will finish post, then as soon as windows starts to load the computer shuts down. I can then restart the machine, and everything boots up fine, and the computer runs fine no problem. The frustrating thing about this issue, is that it doesn't start happening until after windows has been installed for several months, at this point I am not sure what to do. I took it to Fry's Electronics to have their technicians look at it, they swapped out my motherboard and memory and graphics card and power supply, one at a time of course, to try to see if it was a hardware issue. They couldn't find anything, eventually saying it was a bad windows install, so they re-installed windows, worked fine for a while then the problem came back. Any help is appreciated.

    Do you get as far as the login screen? Are there any relevant error messages in Event Viewer? Does the PC actually power off or is the power still on with a blank screen?

    Some ideas:

    1. Do you have another disk connected apart from your system disk which has an active partition since that can confuse the boot process? You can use MiniTool Partition Wizard to check partitions and change them to inactive.
    2. Turn off fast startup if turned on.
    3. Check you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard & set defaults
    4. If using UEFI boot only, does your GPU have a UEFI BIOS? If not, set CSM compatibility mode.
