Reboot Please help me with this. I have been on the internet looking for a solution on how to reboot my computer but many of the solutions are not for what state my computer is in. My monitor will not turn on when I turn the computer on, it keeps flashing but wont turn on and the last time it did come on the words that appeared where Warning computer needs to be rebooted ( those are the words I can remember). There is only 1 Bio beep and the keyboard would not work. The keyboard lights flash when I turn the computer on but will not work when I push F1 or even any other button. Please help.....oh I dont have a reboot cd.........Thanks

Make sure you unplug the computer, check to see if your memory is in right and in the right place. plug back in and restart. unpluging each time helps. the motherboard could be bad and or the power box, check the cpu chip to make sure it's in right, take out the modom and try it. sometimes a card might make it not come on, *********** board is not comeing on, look to see if there are any lighs that come on, and then go off, the momory could make it not work. I have had them go bad on me. and it makes the mother board shut off, and you dont get the moniter to work.

Screen says to reboot, have no reboot device,unable to doanything to this computer, only 2 years old.have called my internet co.andmicrosoft. they tell me computer is atfault. please help

Gateway is responsible for any hardware issues with your computer. Neither the internet service provider nor the operating system manufacturer has anything to do with the hardware. Your Gateway has a power on button on its case. You may have to hold the button in for several seconds to shut it down but as you have not accessed the OS, that won't harm the hard drive. Once it's shut down, repress the power button to turn it back on and hopefully it will power up completely to the Windows or Linux OS you are using.

MSI laptops internet troubleshooting is not working

I am glad to HELP YOU!

So, if I got it right, you have problems connecting to the Internet
OK, I will suggest you some simple solutions to have it fixed:
1. double-click on MY COMPUTER > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER and see if your WLAN Card or your Network Card [or both] are visible there.
If they are NOT and you will see a YELLOW TRIANGLE and it says there UNKNOWN DEVICE try to update the driver. To do so
- right-click on the UNKNOWN DEVICE and select PROPERTIES > UPDATE DRIVER
- go on the manufacturer's website and get the update from there
After everything was done REBOOT and try to reconnect.

2. check if your device [computer/laptop] is properly connected to your MODEM/ROUTER.
Anyway try to REBOOT the modem too, and once the reboot was done input correctly your username and your password and reconnect to the Internet.

Hope it will help you!

Mozilla firefox keeps asking me to reboot, even when I try to rem

This is due to the registry entries that are installed with Firefox. Any major changes to the system registry requires a reboot. However, a reboot in this case is not immediatelly necessary. You can ignore this error and reboot later if you are working on something, or close out all programs and reboot the computer.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks, Raph30

Cannot connect to internet through DI-524

After you've rebooted your wireless router...make sure you reboot the cable-company (or DSL) modem while the router is connected to it and on. The modem seems to recognize the router properly only in this way.

Simply unplug the power to the cable-modem and plug it in again.
If the cable-modem has a battery back-up you'll want to remove that as well.
