Its depends on how you make reboot.

  • If you are making hard-reboot means just powering off the power supply, then you may be lost some data or files if they are open.
  • If you are making soft-reboot i.e. from Start->Shutdown -> Restart, then you are not going to loose any bit of information or data.
If any more query just Ask me please......

Thanks

My laptop wont load right and nothing working on it. i can't reboot or trune it off. it won't run in safemood


Try booting from your recovery disk, then click "repair my computer". That should replace any corrupt files, and will not erase files on your computer. Very handy.

How to reboot a computer with erasing hard drive


You need to get a little more familiar with terminology; 'reboot' simply means restart and while PCs start from the hard drive, erasing the drive means making the hard drive momentarily empty of data or system files.
Did you mean 'reformat?' This can make the drive empty of any recoverable files if done properly or, if done with the quicker method, it simply makes the file names different and unusable meaning the content can be recovered if desired.
If you are trying to destroy existing data but want to preserve the operating system, there are numerous free utilities that will do that securely and remove sensitive material.
I use this one for secure deletions, it's pretty simple and easy to use and can make any data totally 'gone' by several different methods.

Erased frontpage


When you say you erased it, do you mean you deleted the files from the Program Files directory or do you mean you uninstalled it?  If you uninstalled it you will need the original disk to reinstall it.  If you just deleted the files (bad move by the way) then you may be lucky.  Copy the files from the other machine and it may work.

The fix starts by first doing a "deep uninstall" of all ati drivers and programs present in the affected computer computer, remember to remove al ati related programs from control panel's add remove utility, including the whole multimedia center. And finally reinstalling the new drivers.

You should have downloaded the most recent catalyst drivers from ATI that are available for your card.

Now proceed with the "deep uninstall" following this directions, taken from somewhere on the internet, thanks to the one who wrote them...

1. Go into the Control Panel and under the ADD/REMOVE SOFTWARE icon uninstall the ATI Multimedia software and/or the ATI DVD software.
2. Uninstall the ATI drivers also found in the Add/Remove section. Once removed, it will prompt you to reboot....do so.
3. When returning to windows, the NEW HARDWARE FOUND wizard will come up and will tell you that it has found a new VGA card and will prompt you for drivers. Hit CANCEL!
4. Now, go to START - SEARCH - FOR FILES OR FOLDERS and do a search for all files and folders using the filename ati*.*
This search will normally give you 3 to 4 files found in your c:/windows directory and subdirectories (including the Windows/System directory). Select these files and erase them. Now go to your Recycle Bin and Empty your bin.

5. Next...time to go to your Registry. Go to START -- RUN -- regedit
Here go to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SYSTEM -- ControlSet001 -- Control -- Video . Here there should be 4 entries. 3 of them are default Windows XP entries and the 4th one is put in by the ATI drivers. Expand each one by one until you see ATI entries. Once found, erase the entire key.
Now repeat the same step above for the ControlSet002 key and the CurrentControlSet Key. Normally, whenever you erase a key in the ControlSet001, XP automatically deletes it in the CurrentControlSet section too. So if the ATI key is not found in the CurrentControlSet section, don't worry about it.
Once all keys are deleted, proceed to the next step.

6. While still in the registry, go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SOFTWARE section. Here you should find an ATI Technologies key. Select it and delete it. In that same section, look for an Installed Options key. Expand it and there you should find another ATI Technologies key. Select it and erase it.
7. Still in the registry, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -- Software and there you should find another ATI technologies key. Select it and erase it. Once all this is done, close the registry. the registry is now clean. Though you might want to even run a registry cleaner, like the one included in the freeware program CCLEANER, it's very good, can be undone and it's safe enough to use it almost blindly.
8. Close all windows and reboot.
9. When in windows after the reboot the NEW HARDWARE FOUND WIZARD will pop up again. Cancel that. Now find the new ATI drivers that you have downloaded and extracted and run the SETUP file. Once complete, reboot and you are done. You may want to reinstall your ATI MMC software and DVD software if you use them. DONE!
