1. Try this first:

Right click Start then to Control Panel>Power Options

Click on Choose What the Power Buttons do

Click on Change Settings that are Currently Unavailable

uncheck the box labeled Turn on Fast Startup

Reboot

Watchdog errors usually indicate a hardware problem and generally a driver problem, in particular a Video Driver. Also a SSD hard drive can cause this.

Need computer specs

Make and Model
PC/Laptop
