Let's stop the Automatic Restart feature, once this is done you will receive a Blue screen with an STOP: code which will give us information about what is causing this.

Press and hold F8 when the computer is beginning to start up to access the Advanced Boot Options, when it opens click on Disable auto restart on error.

The screen you will see will look like the one below but will have a different Stop code. Please post the exact STOP: code.

Let's do a Clean Boot and see if we can find what is causing this.

Microsoft Support have very clear and concise instructions for performing this.


There are three steps in this process:

Step 1: Perform a clean boot.

Step 2: Determine what is causing the problem.

Step 3 Reset the computer to start as usual.

Please let us know if this resolves your problem.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Did you try to do the Clean Boot in Safe Mode?
