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 ?

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

Well by the time I restored it, I went to type my password, it started shutting down again . So no not really. Do you reccomend I completely reset my pc to factory settings? I do have some important stuff but nothing as important as the fact that I have a deadline for work in a few days.

Was your computer purchased with Windows 10 or is it an upgrade?

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
