If its laptop follow the below steps
Determine what operating system it uses. Finding out what operating system your laptop uses will let you know what key combo (such as "Ctrl+Alt+Delete") can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot or shutdown.
Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up.
Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot.
Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately.
Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually. A few seconds should do unless you have additional problems.
if you need to reformat your pc make sure you have a backup of your data first. that is very important. then get your vista C that should have come with your laptop and insert in you drive and reboot the laptop. it should boot from the CD then it will guide you through the format and re-installation process.
umm if you did not make any backup disk for your computer then there is nothing to be done at your home you will have to take to a service center
unless you know someone with the same computer type or you could try to reboot it with a different reboot /cd
