Hi,

Few steps to restart you laptop, I would suggest not to restart often since it will degrade the hardware resource.

  • Determine what operating system it uses. Finding out what operating system your laptop uses will let you know what key combo (such as "Ctrl+Alt+Delete") can exit you from usage and trigger a reboot or shutdown.
  • Try and reboot using the operating system. Attempt to use the key combination that will allow you to exit from the operating system and restart the laptop. Be patient, as it may take some time if it has locked up.
  • Hold down the power button. If the operating system's answer to the rebooting will not work, find and hold down the power button of the laptop. This should cause the device to shut itself off. You'll have to press the power button again to power it back on, completing the reboot.
  • Unplug from the wall and remove the battery. If restarting via the operating system and the power button do not work, unplug the laptop from the wall outlet, and remove the battery from the laptop. This will cause it to power off immediately.
  • Allow time to reboot. Give the laptop time to cool down before you power it back on if you had to do this manually.
Else Try:

Windows start > there's a small arrow(pointing RIGHT) in the left bottom > click it and u will get ALL the Power House Options there at your Click(sleep,hibernate,shut down,RESTART,....)

I have a aspire acer 5520 laptop and lost my password. I have no disk to reset it and create a hole new user. what can I do?


Well, have not created reset disk before, you can try to reset windows password in safe mode, this method do not get help from other precondition.
Here are how it works:
First, restart your computer, keep pressing F8 before Windows loads, then select safe mode and enter, you will see the default administrator account appears in the login screen, click that account and enter your system, go to control panel to change your other account password. When it finishes, restart the computer, log in the related account with the newly created password.

And if you failed reset in safe mode, I recommend you use a windows password reset tool to create a reset disk, this method 100% guarantee.
The process isfollowing.
Step 1: Download the Windows Password Reset and burn a erasable CD/DVD, or USB
Step 2: Boot the CD into the ISO image which is provided by Windows PasswordReset
Step 3:BIOS settings
Step 4:Reset the Windows admin password.
Itis an easy-to-use way to reset the password. You can have a try.

How do i reset my laptops cmos battery i have a dell inspirion 5100


The Basic Input Output System (BIOS) on a Dell laptop is used to help hardware communicate with the operating system. You can change many different aspects of your Dell laptop's BIOS such as boot order, BIOS time, set a system password, and change certain aspects of how your hardware works. If you want to reset your Dell laptop BIOS to its original settings, you can do so by changing only one setting. This setting restores your BIOS to its default settings, no matter what settings you may have changed.
1. Restart your Dell laptop. Click on "Start," "Turn off Computer" and "Restart." 2. Press "F2" during the boot process to enter the BIOS. Press "F2" before the Windows loading screen. Certain models may use a different key. The key will be displayed during the boot process. For most Dell models, the key is "F2." 3. Use the "Alt" + "F" key combination to load defaults. 4. Press "Esc" on your Dell laptop keyboard to save and exit. 5. Choose the "Enter" key to save all changes and exit the BIOS screen. Allow your laptop to restart for BIOS settings to reset.
I hope that these steps help you.

Please rate me.

Thanks.
