My Dell 5160 has what is called Access Direct, and this may be similar to what you have. If so, you find it in control panel, printers and other hardware, keyboard.

Trying to reboot my hp compaq nc6320 and i cant figure it out, how do i even get the process started


Hello and welcome to FixYa,

Rebooting is simply pressing the power key to turn the computer off.

Wait one minute,

press the start button again and let the computer completely power up.

If you would like to try to 'reset' the computer;

Unplug the computer from the wall,

turn computer over and take out the battery.

Press the power button for one full minute.

Put the battery back in, then plug in the power cord (in that order).

Press power button again and let computer start up completely.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

Keeps rebooting is there a reset button acer aspire notebook


If your laptop keeps on rebooting, the problem is about your operating system, the system is corrupted, there's no reset button for that problem, you need to fix it through the bootable cd created with your laptop

Dell media direct won't work


Hello,

Here is the steps,

1.Turn on your computer.

2.Insert the reinstallation media (Dell Media Direct CD/DVD) into the CD/DVD drive, then restart the computer.

3. press F12 when the bios page comes up and then select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.

"Option 1" from the menu if you wish to use all of the hard drive for you operating system installation. This is the most common selection and how is your computer was originally shipped to you, unless you specified an operating system partition size at the time you ordered you computer.

"Option 2" to designate a size for your operating system and have a data partition. This allows you to specify a size for the operating system partittion, leaving the remainder, of the hard drive configured as a "data" partition ("D")

4. Once you have prepared the drive and you have returned to the main recovery menu, remove the installation media and replace it with you operating system reinstallation media. Select the option to reboot your computer. If your computer does not automatically start the media, press <F12> to access the boot menu and select the Cd/DVD boot option.

5.Install your operating system, select the Primary partition when prompted. If you have two hard drives, select the primary partition on the same disk where hte media direct partition resides. Once the OS is installed and the necessary drivers are installed you can begin the reinstallation of the dell mediaDirect software.

Good Luck,
Austin
