It’s been happening for two days and I haven’t been able to use it all since then, I’ve also got work due in next Monday which is pretty worrying as I can’t seem to get this to work. I can just about get to login screen and as soon as I start typing my pc just starts shutting down. Sometimes I can’t even make it to the login screen.

Hello Riks,

You wrote: "pc just starts shutting down", do you mean Windows as if you were closing ?

Yes, the windows shutting down screen usually comes up and it just turns off.

Hi

Your operating system seems to be corrupted.

I don't know what version of Windows you are using nor do I know if you have updated Windows.

I strongly suggest that you try to boot in safe mode and restore your system to a previous date, prior to a date before the problem occurred.

I must now logout till tomorrow.

Let me know.

Thing is, I can rarely get past the login screen...so I don’t know how to boot in safe mode

So I restored my computer to a month earlier, and then to my surprise it was staying on the login screen for a while, but the second I started typing my password, it started shutting down again

Still looks like your windows is corrupted. Did you install all of the updates?

If you do a factory reset your computer will go back to Windows 8 and all of you data will be lost.

You never replied! Were you able to boot in safe mode?

Yes, I booted in safe mode then I restored to a earlier state using recovery, as soon as it was done and I had to enter my password, it started shutting down again

Go back into safe mode as the computer should not shut down while in safe mode.

Then run a check and repair for your system file (sfc scannow), follow the instructions in this link:

I tried it to do it this time and it just started shutting down again when i started typing, is there anyway to get into safe mode without loggin in first? The shift and restart method doesn’t work and it’s the only that would apply to me in that link you posted before
