Hold down the power button for 5-7 seconds and it will shut the laptop off. If that doesnt work, remove the battery from the bottom of the laptop and disconnect the AC adapter.

How to reboot compaq mini


Reboot is another
name for restart, so
just click into the Start
menu then shut down
then choose restart. If
you are unable to do
that since if the laptop
is frozen push and hold
the power button in for
at least 10 seconds or
until the computer
turns off, then push the
power button again to
turn it back on. This
should only be done if
you are unable to do
anything else.
Ok

I was shutting down my toshiba laptop, its now frozen.


If nothing else works remove the battery, leave it for 5 mins then replace it and it will start as normal. Yyou will get an error message usually saying it was not shut down correctly and it may do a system scan but unless there is a real problem with it that will restart it. Ive had to do that twice with mine in the last year.
