I have an older Dell Inspiron. I think I bought it in 2008. It had Windows Vista originally and I upgraded to Windows 7 in 2013.
Recently, when I click to shut down, it will go to a blue DOS looking screen and then reboot. A message will pop up saying something like "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown." It's a pain because I have to wait until it finishes rebooting and then shut it down again.

To clarify, it doesn't do this every time; maybe once out of every 10 or 12 shutdowns. Usually it shuts down normal. It seems to do the "unexpected shutdown" reboot thing when I'm in a hurry.

Any help is appreciated.
