Here are some possible reasons why your desktop keeps restarting:
Automatic restart feature: Windows has a built-in feature that automatically restarts your computer if it encounters a critical error. This feature is enabled by default, so you can disable it to see if that fixes the problem. To do this, open the Control Panel and go to “System and Security > System > Advanced system settings”. Under Startup and Recovery, click on “Settings” and uncheck the box next to “Automatically restart”.
Hardware problems: If your computer is restarting due to a hardware problem, such as a faulty power supply or overheating, you may see an error message when it restarts. If you don’t see an error message, you can try running a diagnostic tool to check your hardware.
Software problems: Software problems, such as outdated drivers or malware infections, can also cause your computer to restart. You can try updating your drivers or running a virus scan to see if that fixes the problem.
Corrupted Windows files: Corrupted Windows files can also cause your computer to restart. You can try running the System File Checker tool to fix corrupted files.
Here are some things you can try to fix the problem:
Disable the automatic restart feature. This is the simplest thing you can do, and it may fix the problem if the restart is caused by a critical error.
Run a diagnostic tool. This will help you to identify any hardware problems that may be causing the restart.
Update your drivers. Outdated drivers can sometimes cause problems. You can update your drivers manually or automatically.
Run a virus scan. Malware infections can also cause problems. You can use a antivirus software to scan your computer for malware.
Run the System File Checker tool. This tool can help to fix corrupted Windows files.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
- Make sure that your computer is getting enough power.
- If it’s not, it may restart to prevent damage to the hardware.
- Keep your computer cool. Overheating can also cause it to restart.
- Install all the latest updates for Windows and your drivers.
