    By reboot, do you mean turn off and turn back on? Or do you mean you want it reset to the factory's original condition?

If you are running Windows, go to Start, then hit shutdown, then you will have an option for restart.

I have an old packard bell pc and it needs to be rebooted but i haven't got the original floppy reboot disc how can i do it without the disc ?


By rebooted, I assume you mean reinstalled? You cannot reinstall a PC this old without the operating system disk. New PC's have a utility partition that contains the reinstall package. You will have to purchase that OS from ebay or some other site.

Tip

Create One-Click Shutdown and Reboot Shortcuts:


First, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop, choosing New, and then choosing Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard appears. In the box asking for the location of the shortcut, type shutdown. After you create the shortcut, double-clicking on it will shut down your PC.
But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty, like this:
shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC" Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.
I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my PC, and one for rebooting. Here are the ones I use:
shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8!" shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ;)!"
Switch What it does
-s Shuts down the PC.
-l Logs off the current user.
-t nn Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.
-c "messagetext" Displays a message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.
-f Forces any running applications to shut down.
-r Reboots the PC.

I need to reboot my computer and when it starts up but i dont know how


How to reboot a PC.
  • Save work if it's in jeopardy. If your PC has frozen, attempt to save your data before rebooting your machine. Rebooting will almost certainly cause data loss. Attempt to save your data to your hard drive, diskette or portable media.
  • Step 2 Determine the steps your operating system has to go through to reboot. Some operating systems allow you to press Control, Alt and Delete to reboot the PC. Others require different commands. However, if the operating system and software are frozen, you may use the power button on the machine or the power strip.
  • Step 3 Use the power switch if necessary. If you cannot access the shutdown feature of the operating system and the relevant buttons still won't allow for a reboot, press and hold the power button on the PC. Allow the machine to rest for a few seconds, then power back on.
  • Step 4 Wait for the power-on self-test. Allow the PC to check its components thoroughly through the initial boot screens that will appear.
  • Step 5 Resume working. Log back into the machine and continue to work.

    if able u can reboot by accessing start button and clicking turnoff and choosing restart. some pc's have restart button under power button. if not you can shut it down by holding pwr button for 10 seconds. some computers will not reboot if your hardware abstraction layer (HAL) was corrupt. if so you have to reinstall it. u can just follow help options in your pc help by pressing F1 and seraching for HAL.

    My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before


    Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.
