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.

My computer is freezing or not responding. Also downloads are being blocked completely


Sounds like you have a virus. boot into safemode with networking and download malwarebytes run that in safe mode. then restart into normal windows and run malware again. then i suggest downloading AVG its free and antivirus great program. also if you are using mcaffee dont use it. It slows your PC down way to much

Computer freezes must unplug to restart, what can I do?


The first thing I would do is check for Malware.
This type of infection causes computer slowness, freezing and sometimes rebooting.
You can get a Malware scanner for this from this link.
Download install and scan your PC. Follow the suggested removal for ay infections you find.

How to reboot a compaq v2000


there may be a backed up folder on another partition of your hardrive with the restore files, but you should have an anti virus programme installed, if not download this free AVG 8 and then restart your pc in safe mode (press F8 while booting and select safe mode).

click on the administrator account and find the AVG8 download, install it, the go to my computer, right click,properties, system restore tab and untick 'turn on system restore'.

run the AVG 8 programme and scan your system.

Once virusus are found, reboot system and then run as normal and then turn back on system restore

Computer slow;freezing up


First choice is the RESTORE option. Installed programs will still be there (may lose desktop icon) and you can always reinstall / re update adobe if needed. After all what good is a virus program and Adobe update if you can'nt use the computer. Adobe Reader will sometimes cause slowdowns on some computers (mine) while in the browser online.
Download Spybot Search and Destroy (then update it) to find Spyware on the computer. Then download and run Adaware to seacrch for additional adware programs. These should help clean the system of some of the trash. Again I would Restore FIRST so that these will download and run effectively.
