How to Fix Windows 11 stuck on Restart

When you restart your Windows 10 PC, problems like a slow boot or, worst case, a freeze can happen. So, the computer will be stuck on the sequence to restart for a long time. In some cases, restarting can be done in a few minutes, but in others, it can take hours.

If your Windows system gets stuck in a Blue Screen restart loop, you won’t be able to use it. To fix this problem, it’s best to remove any new hardware, since it might not work with the system.

Also, you should get rid of any overclock settings and check your RAM for problems. This problem can also be caused by drivers that don’t work together. Even Windows 11 can get stuck in a reboot loop.

To help you figure out what to do, we made a list of the best ways to deal with this. If you’re having trouble solving the problem at hand, check out the ideas below.
