First off I just want to say. Hello! To everyone here and hope everyone is having a pleasant weekend for themselves! Now on to the problem.
Recently my computer is doing something funny that is starting to irritate me. Whenever I click on Start <- ShutDown <-Restart, Windows goes through the process of shutting down as it normally would before a restart. Windows shuts down and you are taken to the shutting down screen with the spinning circle...Everything looks peachy at that point but then the problem that's been angering me to NO end happends. The screen goes back as expected and the monitor says "No Signal" as expected but the PC stays on and never resets. This is frustrating me because since I use software from time to time that requires rebooting the PC it would be less of a hassle for me to not have to "Hard Reset" the pc everytime I need to reboot it. I've tried nearly everything here from modifying my start-up Processes using Autoruns from viewing my Event log on windows and everything seems ok other then a small problem with a registry file that has to do with internet protocols...I've uninstalled and reinstalled programs. I would do a full scale war along the lines of just formatting the system and reinstalling the OS. Problem being I bought this computer with WIN 7 preloaded and wasn't given any kind of disc to be able to reinstall my OS or try a Repair. I been at this for about a week and time just flies by and both wife and mother in law are annoyed by me trying to fix this thing as it's been the center of my focus. The damn German in me doesn't like to quit things unless their fixed. I mean,sure I could just have to hard reset every time I need to restart my PC but If something isn't functioning the way a device should this is when I go nuts trying to fix but this is my last resort to possibly find a solution. Come to a place where people are sure to know about this issue than I could ever imagine. Well enough of my babble. Tell me what I need to do and if I have to do a Hijack this LOG or a malwarebytes log I can provide those. Hell any scan of my PC you need if it's a software issue then I'll do what is requested and of course post any change. Thanks for taking the time to read of this problem and hopefully from the help of the masters (No,not kissing butt here,just stating the obvious!) of PC hell can give me a lending hand. Thank you once again.
