Method 1 – Change the boot order in BIOS
The boot order is a BIOS feature that controls which component of your computer starts first. If your hard drive is not first in order, you may have some problems with starting up as well as shutting down your computer. So to fix this problem, we have to put your HDD hard drive first in the boot order.
However, something even simpler restores your BIOS values to defaults, as it will set your HDD as the first boot option and resolve a numbeseveralBIOS problems. To set your BIOS values to the defaults, follow these steps:
- Shut down your computer (you will probably force shut it down. Otherwise, you won’t read this article)
- Turn it back on and press Del (Or any button enter the BIOS for your computer)
- In the BIOS, look for an option that sets your BIOS value to default.
- Press the appropriate key, save changes, and exit BIOS
When you turn on your computer, you should try to turn it off again and see any changes.
Method 2 – Adjusting Power Settings
If resetting the BIOS values did not resolve the shutdown issue, maybe changing a few power settings will work. The quick start is on by default in Windows 10, and this feature can sometimes cause shutdown problems. So disabling this feature will hopefully solve the problem. Here’s exactly what you need to do:
- Right-click on the Start Menu button and go to Power Options.
- Select Change what the power button does
- Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.
- Uncheck Turn on Fast Startup
- Click OK
Now try shutting down your computer and see if the problem is resolved.
Method 3 – Disable or uninstall a specific program or process
It is well known that third-party programs can prevent your computer from shutting down normally. If that’s the case, your computer will tell you which program is preventing it from shutting down, so go and disable or uninstall that program, and your computer should be able to shut it down usually afterward. The procedure is similar if a particular system process prevents regular shutdowns. However, since the fix is not the same for all operations, you should go online and look for a specific Windows process solution.
