A computer is a magnet for problems. If you use your computer to surf online, you can collect many viruses and such. This article will help you if you ever have a problem with your computer shutting down before it even starts up.

Things You'll Need

  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Computer with problem
  • Is this your problem? This problem comes on suddenly. You will know this is your problem if you computer shuts down for no reason.

  • Confirm your problem. You can do this by trying to restart your computer. When your computer gets to your desktop screen it will shut down again before any programs have a time to start.

    This will not happen on a log in screen where you pick which user you are. You have to pick the user you had this problem on for a true confirmation.

  • Go ahead and restart your computer again. When it goes to the first screen there will be options for you to do before the screen disappears.

  • Locate which button you have to press for a system recovery. It will say something like "F11 - System Recovery."

  • Press the correct button on your keyboard corresponding with System Recovery before the screen disappears. If you missed your opportunity, let the computer restart and try again.

  • This should bring you to a system recovery wizard. Tell this wizard you want to recover to a previous date. Follow the instructions. When you get to a page where it asks you what point you want to restore to, pick a restore point two or more days before the day your problem began.

  • Finish the wizard and restart your computer. It should now load up the programs and a message should eventually appear saying something like "System Recovery Successful."
