    Windows 10

    Have to manually turn pc off with power button before it boots correct

    Hi guys,

    every time I want to use my custom-built pc (Windows 10), the process goes as following:

    -press power button
    -wait for initial booting to start, before a noise that sounds like something being stopped
    -hold down power button so it turns off
    -press power button, and voila it works.

    does anyone know why this could be happening? a friend suggested a clean reinstall, i've tried a partial one with the feature that allows you to keep files and that didn't fix it.

    Hello lewhit, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like you may be having an issue with Fast Startup.

    As a test, turn off Fast Startup (if not already) to see if that may help.
