    Windows 8.1 crashes when restarting or shutting down

    Hi I have tried mostly anything to get it working,but it won't work.I have tried disabling quick boot and everything really,still no luck.What happens basically is I shut the PC down it shows shutting down.... And then it just reboots.Can I be because I still have the boot files on my hard drive?Unfortunately after this happens I'm usually forced to use the power down button and that can break a PSU I heard.Please help me guys really it would be much appreciated =D
    To sum up what I mean,it says shutting down,then gives me a black screen and then reboots.Help would be much appreciated

    It works fine in safe mode
