PC restarts upon shutdown and WiFi adapter is nonexistent

HP Envy 700-074
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have tried everything within my understanding  to stop my PC from turning back on a few seconds after I shutdown.

The problem started months ago and I got so fed up that I left it alone until now. 

 

Steps I have taken: 

 

  • Turned off automatic restart upon system failure
  • Disabled fast-startup
  • Restored to 1/1/17
  • Upddated Windows 10
  • Updated Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller 

I don't know what else I can do really. 

 

In addition to this, my Ralink Wi-Fi Adapter is completely missing. It doesn't show up in Device Manager. My Desktop asks for an ethernet connection. 

 

In Windows > Settings > Network & Internet there is no left-hand tab for Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi simply does not exist. 

I'm wondering if this is causing the automatic reboot. 

 

I don't know what driver I need to download to get my Wi-Fi adaptor back. I know it might be an issue with the card, and I am open to buying a usb adaptor. I am more concerned with my Desktop acting as thought it's possessed by a ghost.

Hi

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-envy-700-000-desktop-pc-series/5358989/model/537...

 

Go through the updating/Installing drivers from the above link please.

 

Is the BIOS set to WOL wake on lan or from the keyboard or similar?

 

Sometimes the Device is hidden...

Thank you for responding! 

 

The only problem with installing the drivers is that there is no Windows 10 option for the drivers that I would need. There's only 8 and 8.1.

 

I just went through shutting off the wake on LAN and did a shutdown only for it to automatically turn on again.
