There are a few ways for you to restart your PC, I've listed them in the most preferred (safest ways) to the least appropriate, but they'll all still get the job done.
1. Click on your Start button in the bottom left corner, press "Turn off Computer" this will bring up 3 options to either log out, restart or turn off. You would like to Restart.
2. If you are unable to access the start bar, press these three keys in this order, as you press them, hold them down until the action is completed "Ctrl" then "Alt" then "Del or Delete". This will bring up something called your task manager, across the top you'll see a few text options, one of which is Shut Down, if you click that you'll see a drop down menu of options, click restart.
3. Complete number 2 until the Windows Task Manager is up, then repeat the steps you performed the first time, this will force a restart of your computer.
4. Your tower (computer) should have a restart button located near the larger power button, a quick pressing of this button should restart your computer as well.
5. If the restart button is unresponsive or you cannot locate it, find the larger power button and hold it down for approximately 6 seconds. This will power down your computer, wait about 1 minute, and then press it again to restart your computer.
6. You might have a physical "on/off" switch located on the back of your tower, move it from the position it's in now, to the other direction available, wait about 1 minute, and click it back to the on position. If your tower doesn't come on immediately, locate a power button on the front/side/top of your computer and press that.
7. **LEAST ADVISED** Unplug it, wait 2 minutes, plug it back in, press the power switch at the back or on the front to restart the tower.
I hope this helps!

Sheila, Reboot means to restart the PC. And to restart the PC if it is running already you must click on Start->Turn Off Computer. You will get many options here. One of them would be Restart. If you click on Restart the Windows will close officially and restart. This is reboot. While if you want it not to start again, then you must select Shut Down. In this case Windows would close officially and not restart.

Hello, can you please explain more about is that you are trying to do?
I have a feeling you are not simply asking about going to "Start" then clicking on "shutdown" and select "restart".
Do you need to restore system to factory default?

Let us know so we further assist you.

Regards,

Amar Sondhi

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.

    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.
