    How do I stop windows 8 from shutting down during boot up

    Hey there

    ive never really had to use forums but this problem is very puzzling so Any help is appreciated

    So what happens is you have the charger plugged in and was indicating it is charging and you start up the machine, it would come up automatic repair for about 10 seconds then shutdown and then after it shuts down the light indicating it's charging turns off.

    i assumed it was just low on charge so I left it charging for an hour and I tried again and had gotten the same results so I'm sure it's not a charge fault but rather a software failure somewhere during boot

    anyone else have this problem also any solutions?

    The CPU has a thermal sensor and if over heated might also cause abrupt shutdown.

    The solution to windows 8 shutting down at booting is very simple: Go to PC settings>Choose what the power buttons do"..power button options> enable advanced options not available>scroll down to the bottom of the window , there you see check marks , and uncheck the first box for "Turn on fast boot up ", save settings, and hard boot now.

    This problem appears only on PCs/laptops which are not compatible to run windows 8.
