how do i reboot my hp laptop and it is win XP


If the system is still running and you would like to reboot, click "Start" then "Turn Off" and then select/Click "Restart".

Or you can also press Alt+F4 and then select/click "Restart".

If the system freezes or hangs and you need to reboot, try pressing "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" simultaneously, if this works, then Windows Task Manager will open up, if so, click the "Shutdown" menu and select "Restart".
If this is not the case and your computer doesn't respond to any of the above methods, your only option is to remove the battery and reinstall it back and then turn on the laptop.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.

how to reboot my laptop


You question is too short, I have trouble assuming it. Anyway let me try my best to make you understand.
1. If you want to reboot your laptop as soon as it starts up, just press ctrl+Alt+Del on the keyboard, before you see the windows logo start screen. It'll automatically reboot itself.

2. (windows xp), Simplest method is press Alt+F4 and then click Restart f7428f1.png

or if your desktop is set to classic menu, the click on the "shutdown" and select "restart" as shown below;

3. For windows 7, click start, then click the right arrow ">" just right to the "shutdown" button and select "restart"

Or simply press Alt+F4 and select "Restart"

How do I reboot it? Compaq 5716 runs very slow Can't download anything paid for interent and the computer just freezes. I want to do a system restore where there is nothing on the computer like brand new.


There are different ways on how to reboot a computer. If your laptop is not operational like it's frozen or crashed with the mouse frozen, try the simple steps below:

1. The custom way to reboot your computer is to press and hold the power button until it shuts off. Then press the power again if you want to turn it back on.

2. If your computer is functional and you just want to reboot/restart it, click on Start then click on Turn Off and select Restart. It will restart your computer.

3. If you can't click on the Start button but your mouse is still functional, you can simply press the Ctrl + Alt + Del button on your keyboard to bring up the Task Manager. Then on the Task Manager window, click on Shutdown tab, then choose Restart.

4. If your computer wont turn off no matter what you do, like holding the power button and the steps above, try to unplug the power cable for few minutes then plug it back in. Try to turn on the computer again.

System Restore

Click on START > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

When you do System Restore, this feature will restore your computer's settings back to its normal or functional condition. You can just choose an earlier date where it was working fine. The good thing about system restore is it wont delete your recent saved files and data.

If you really want a clean hard drive/system like what you said (brand new), reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows Operating System is what you need. You need your Windows installation CD to do it. Click on the links below on how to reinstall your Windows Operating System.
