Reset button acer laptop


Laptops do not have reset buttons ! If your laptop is frozen and won't respond hold down the power button for about 20 seconds and force it to shut down. Only do this if you have no other alternative as it is not good for the hard drive of the laptop. Try the three finger salute first CTRL- ALT - DEL and select task manager if windows system and see if any processes or applications have frozen and close them then select shutdown from the task manager if it is not frozen up.

My curser has frozen


Press your Windows button to get back to your start menu and close it down from there. If it won't close down from there press CTL ALT and DEL all together just the once and it should take you to a different screen that will allow you to shut down or if all else fails hold the power key down until it closes.
Re boot and allow windows to go to protect mode. When the hard drive light has finished flashing, close it down again. Next time you boot it should be fine.
Hope that helps.

Hey i scored you these instructions on how to reset your frozen ipod. Hope its hella useful. Good luck :)

Last Modified: January 28, 2009 Article: HT1320 Old Article: 61705 Summary Learn how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.

Important: If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, it may be because iPod is paused or the Hold switch is in the locked position. If so, a lock symbol appears on the screen. Slide the Hold switch to the unlocked position and check the screen.
If the iPod is connected to a computer and displays any of the following messages you should eject the iPod from within iTunes instead of resetting it:
Connected. Eject before disconnecting Sync in Progress. Please wait... Do not disconnect If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, the steps to reset it vary by model. You can easily tell which iPod model you have if you're not sure.

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
