You have to enter following command in command prompt.

c:\>shutdown -m \\it -s

Shutdown - This is the command u use to shutdown/restart/etc
-m - It means remote computer.
\\it - This is the computer name which you want to shutdown
-s - You have to enter this command (-s = Shutdown, -r = Restart, -l = Logoff, -a = Abort shutdown)

Hope this is working for you. If not, comment back with the problems. Thank You...!!

Cant connect to laptop

Unplug power to both modem and router (leave unplugged)
Shutdown your computer and take the battery out (wait about 3 minutes before putting battery in)
Turn on computer open BIOS and reset to default settings, exit saving changes
Let the computer restart and boot up normally
Log back into Windows
Plug back in your modem and then your router
Wait about 2 minutes for everything to start working correctly
Try connecting again

If that does not work
Go to start and type in CMD
Run CMD as and admin
Type in ipcongi/flushdns and press enter
Then type in ipconfig /release and press enter
Then type in ipconfig /renew and press enter
Close out of the command prompt
Wait about 30 seconds so your router can assign an IP address to your system via DHPC
Try connecting again

If both above fail
Try updating your drivers for your network card and chip set

I got a code purple trying to restore my computer to its factory settings and now when my computer tries to boot up normally I can't log in using my old password or username and the only way I hav

With the code purple error on the screen, press the shift+f10 to open the cmd prompt.
Whe the cmd prompt opens, type the following command without the quotes "notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd", then after the REM lines add the following code without the quotes "goto cleanup". Save the file and exit notepad and restart your computer by typing the following command without the quotes, "shutdown -r -t 0".
This will cause the checkdmi function in an HP computer to bypass the tattoo check.
Hope this helps

Smple script for graceful shutdown of Windows OS

a simple batch file could be used

IF "%1"=="a" Shutdown -a
Shutdown -r -t %1
Shutdown -r -t 30
This batch file accepts the inputs as follows
"down.bat" This will shutdown in 30 secs and is default
"down.bat 120" This shuts down in 2 mins
"down.bat a" This aborts any shutdown operation.
Hope this is what your after

Connection keeps going on and off

check the ip addresses with the pc downstairs and see if all the pc's have the same default gateway. If not check your network card or network cable.
