    Solved Unpredictable shut down behavior

    Solved Unpredictable shut down behavior

    It sounds to me like something is maybe running in the background, I would suggest checking your start up programs (msconfig) firstly unchecking all that you do not need and if that doesn't help unchecking the rest, restarting each time until you find the culprit.

    Problem with boot in Windows 8
