    At first windows loads up as usual to desktop. After about 30 seconds, it randomly restarts and after that it keeps getting stuck at boot logo and then restarts again looping over and over again.

    This also happens on safemode. I managed to uncheck automatically restart option on sysdm.cpl with the 30 seconds that I had, but even after doing that, the restart looping persists. I dont know what to do.

    The last time windows worked normally, I played Forza Horizon 4 with logitech g29 steering wheel and shifter which was working perfectly fine for 4 days after I got the steering wheel. The next day I go to turn my computer on and this happened.

    Specs:

    MOBO: ASRock FM2A58M-HD+

    RAM: 1×8GB Mushkin Stealth 997069S DDR3

    CPU: AMD A10-6800k 4.1 GHz Quadcore FM2 socket With AMD Radeon HD 8670D graphics

    GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060

    Storage: Samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD

    No the Repair option appears in small print right after setting up the keyboard, before setup begins

    I recommend trying the following method. Let me know if any questions

    Step 1:
    • Download and create a Windows 10 USB/DVD if needed.
    • Boot from your Windows 10 install media USB/DVD
    • Select your language preferences and click Next
    • Click on Repair your computer link at the bottom of the box
    • From the "Choose an option screen," select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Command Prompt
    Step 2:
    Copy and paste the following into command prompt
    bcdedit |find "osdevice"
    (this will display the correct Windows drive letter) see following example:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>bcdedit |find "osdevice"
    osdevice partition=C:

    Step 3:
    Type or copy and paste the commands below and press Enter after each one.

    Note: Use the correct Driver Letter that was found in Step 2 for the following commands if different then D: drive

    d:
    cd d:\windows\system32\config\regback
    Dir (This will list the contents of regback. Check the date and be sure that the contents are Not empty. If it is empty then this will not work STOP and DO NOT proceed

    If the contents of Dir are not Empty: continue with the following commands
    copy *.* d:\windows\system32\config (press enter)
    Select ALL to the override prompt, it will say files copied, 5 hives will be copied
    Restart computer and test

    The reboot also happens on command prompt so im afraid if I start typing commands, half way through it will shut off and cause even more problems

    Oh and I forgot to mention that this happens on boot settings. Whenever I modify something in boot setting I can't save my settings becuase it restarts. So Im starting to think its a hardware issue. maybe my power supply failing?

    None of these steps should cause any issues even if it restarts during the process. However if you want to start with some hardware diagnostics then follow the steps below.

    Step 1: Test Hard Drive
    Download USB Seatools Boot file to your Desktop

    1. Uncompress the .zip file
    2. Open the USBbootSetup-SeaToolsBootable folder
    3. Double click on the SeaToolsBootable_RC_2.1.2.usbBootMaker.exe file
    4. Follow the steps to create a Bootable USB

    1. Boot from the Seatools USB and Run the program
    2. Once it starts it will scan for all drives connected to your computer.
    3. Select drive you want to test.5. If it passes then
    4. Select the Long Generic Test under the Basic Tests menu
    5. When the test is complete you will see the result under Test Status
    6. The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.
    7. Provide the Results in your reply.

    Step 2: Test Memory:
    Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
    Testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
    Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing
    Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes
    When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes take a picture and post an image and upload to your reply
