    Unable to restart computer


    I upgraded my Lenovo Z570 to Windows 8.1 and have been encountering lots of problems. I'm unable to boot after restarting. So every time it enters sleep mode or restarts, I have to shut it down using the power button and then restart. I've unchecked the Fast start-up option too but there's no use. Also tried Automatic Repair but it doesn't work.

    Do you have any problems when doing a cold boot?

    There's no problem while doing a cold boot but all of the power options are redundant. Every time, I have to shut down by pressing down the power button.
