Aspire 3 screen flashes on initial bootup of day, requires soft reboot Aspire 3 A315-56.

I have a new Aspire 3 A315-56.  When I turn it on after a shutdown, the screen starts flashing after logging into the system.  I need to perform a soft reboot and everything is fine.  This has happened every day that I have booted the computer up (3 days since purchase).

One factor might be that it is connected to a public wi-fi?  I'm not sure.

I have only installed software that is approved by Microsoft (signed and okay).

    Open Control Panel. Search 'button'. Click 'change what the power buttons do' in left pane. Click 'change settings that are currently unavailable'. Scroll down and check the box for fast startup. If already checked, uncheck it. Then shutdown Windows normally and try it again. Jack E/NJ
