There are some built-in features through which your window will automatically restart your laptop when there is an error in some applications.

But you can disable this option if you are facing this problem.

But disabling this option can lead you toward other problems, such as your system freezing when there is an error in some applications, a black screen on your laptop, or a blurry screen.

That is why it is recommended to enable this option again after restarting the laptop.

  • Go to the window icon and select the control panel.
  • Go to system and security.
  • Go to advanced system settings on the left side of the screen.
  • The next window will appear. Hit the settings option.
  • You will see an option. Disable the “Automatically disable” option under the “System Failure” option.
  • Click “OK” and close the window.

Disable fast startup

The fast startup option can boost your system when you shut down your system.

This option can also lead to you restarting your laptop again and again. Therefore, it is recommended to disable this option if you face this issue.

  • Go to the control panel
  • Click for hardware and sound.
  • Select the power option button available on the right side of the window.
  • Hit the “choose what the power button does”.
  • You will see an option to change settings.
  • Now disable the fast startup button to disable this option.

Uninstall the most recently installed apps

Some recent apps that you have installed on your laptop can also cause this type of problem.

These apps can change the system settings. As a result, you must uninstall any apps that are causing this issue. Here are the steps to uninstall the apps.

  • Navigate to the control panel by clicking on the window icon.
  • Select “uninstall an application.”
  • It will show all the apps installed on your system. Choose the app that you think will cause the problem and install it.
  • There may be more than one app. Remove all these apps.

Check the time and date settings in the BIOS

If the time and date settings are wrong, your PC will randomly restart. As a result, you must change it in the BIOS settings.

  • Press F2 to go to the BIOS settings.
  • Go to time and date settings.
  • Check if the time and date are correctly set. If it is wrong, then update the time and date.
  • Restart your computer and your problem will be solved. Always keep BIOS settings up to date.


These are the common issues that lead to your PC randomly restarting.

If the problem remains the same, then you should either reinstall your window or take it to a computer expert to resolve this issue.
