Who do you reboot?


I couldn't read the information on the screen.

If you need to reboot, there sometimes a reboot button. Pressing and releasing it will cause the computer to reboot.

If there isn't a reboot button, press and hold the power button until the computer turns off. Release the button and press and release it to reboot the computer.


Good luck.

Method to reboot system using CD/DVD or without


There are Various(different) Methods to Reboot Your Computer 1.) Click "Start," then "Turn Off Computer," then "Restart." else 2.) Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" simultaneously. Then click "Shut Down" and select "Restart." 3.) Press and hold the power key. Most systems will power down after about five seconds. This will force a hard power down. This method does not give hardware in the system, such as hard drives, a warning that power will be lost, so it is not graceful and should only be done if the above methods did not work. 4.) Unplug your computer and plug it in. And turn on the computer. This will also make force a hard power down, "Make sure that if the other command/option did not work (function)" so you should only do it if other methods did not work.
Reboot Using a CD or DVD 1.) Place "insert" the CD or DVD into the disc drive of your system (e.g E:,F: or G:) that you have. 2.) Restart your computer using any of the methods listed under "Various Methods to Reboot Your Computer." 3.) When prompted, press any key to boot the computer using the CD. 4.) Contact your computer's manufacturer if this does not work, and make sure that the CD or DVD is good. If not it will not work "Cannot run for booting" or computer may not be set up correctly, and various troubleshooting methods are required to figure out what is not working.
Else if you want to Reboot Your Computer into Safe Mode Here are the step to run in a "safe mode" 1.) Turn off your computer and Wait for few seconds. 2.) Restart your computer. 3.) Start tapping the "F8" key for a while and wait till the "windows advanced option" menu appear. 4.)

My dell computer won't reboot. How do I reboot it from a cd?


If you are running Windows XP, open the DVD tray (if you could), then load the Win XP installer.

Restart the computer, and it will tell you to press any key if you would like to boot from CD.

Just hit any key and your computer should reboot using the CD.

Thank you and good luck!

Computer crash and restart


Windows restarts without warning
Cause:
This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities.
Software issue or error.
Hardware issue or error.
Heat related issue.
Computer virus.
Issue with operating system.

Answer:

Software issue or error
Errors generated by software programs can cause a computer to reboot unexpectedly or without warning. If you are running Windows XP see the below section "For Windows XP users" before continuing.
If you are not running Windows XP or following the below steps still cause your computer to reboot without warning. Boot your computer into Safe Mode, and let the computer run in Safe Mode.

If the computer is still rebooting in Safe Mode the issue is likely not software related but something else, skip to the next section. If the computer is not rebooting in Safe Mode it is likely you have software related issue. We would recommend you run through the basic troubleshooting section for your operating system.
For Windows XP users
Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD. Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP.
From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
Click the Properties option.
In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
Click Ok.
Now if the computer generates and error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.
Hardware issue or error
Any failing hardware component in your computer could cause your computer to unexpectedly generate an error and/or reboot without warning. If you have recently attempted to add a new hardware device, remove that device to make sure it is not causing your issues.
Make sure you are not encountering any hardware conflicts by viewing Device Manager for errors.

New drivers can also cause this issue, if you have recently performed any hardware driver updates you may wish to try an earlier version of the drivers.

If you have updated drivers and removed any hardware that could be causing this issue and continue to experience random reboots, it's possible that the memory is bad in the computer.

Finally, hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.
Computer virus
Computer viruses such as the blaster virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted.
If you believe your computer may be infected with a virus or are uncertain if your computer is infected with a virus make sure your virus scanner definitions are up to date.

Heat related issue
Many computer today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets to hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.
You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working (processor fan and case fan) and/or if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.
Users may also be able to determine how hot their computer is by onboard thermal sensors, if your computer comes equipped with these sensors make sure your CPU is not running to hot.
Issue with operating system
If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting.
After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit.
If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you reinstall your version of Microsoft Windows.

Reboot


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.

E Machine T6520 shuts off when trying to play computer games


Check your systems cooling - often, games require more system resources, and can dramatically increase the amount of heat your system puts out. Some motherboards have a built-in reboot switch that causes them to reboot the computer once a certain temperature is reached.

When your computer is starting up, hit the "delete" key on your keyboard. This will bring you into your BIOS menu. Be very careful in here if you don't know what you're doing, as you can fundamentally alter the way your computer starts up. Look for an option marked "System Monitor" or something along those lines, and check if there is an option for "auto reboot" or "reboot computer at temperature". If it exists, try increasing it to the next suggested level and then save changes, and exit to your BIOS.

If that doesn't work, try installing new cooling fans or heatsinks according to your processor's specifications.
