Run your virus programs to check for infections. Install the most current driver for your video adapter. If that does not help unplug and re-plug in your video card. Finally replace your video card.

I need to reboot my laptop but i don't know how


Reboot essentially means restarting the computer. This is two types
1. Warm Reboot: where you go to start on windows task bar and choose shut down but when prompted choose restart. This way computer shuts down momentarily and restarts!
2. Cold Reboot: By this means you choose to shut down and again when prompted choose shut down! This makes computer off completely until restart by pressing power button.
Booting is computer Lingo for above procedures!

How do I get my laptop out of hibernation mode?


hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds untill you hear the computer completely powers down, then restart.
alternately, you can do that and also remove the battery while the computer is unplugged and that also will take it out of hibernation.

I have a compaq presario CQ50-215NR notebook PC, and after a couple of hours of watching videos, the screen goes blank, and nothing can function, although the power is still on. What is causing this?


The most likely culprit is heat. When a laptop overheats, it shuts down to protect itself.
Buy an inexpensive cooling pad at Stuff-Mart or a computer store or simply slide a paperback book under the back edge so that air can circulate under the machine.

Computer shuts down


Your computer is most likely overheating.

Make sure it is positioned so that none of the vents are blocked on the unit.
Check it with your hand to see if it's overheating, make sure dust is not blocking the vents.
If the issue persists, could be software or a failed cooling system on the unit.

Shutdown


Hmm, could be an overheating problem.

Do you have any temperature monitoring software on your laptop you could use to check the cpu temperature while watching streaming video?

If not try downloading and installing this.

check the battery that powers your cmos. if your laptop is like my compaq armada, there's three screws at the top which free up the keyboard cover. there are three latches near the bottom of the keyboard. the keyboard swings up towards the top. there's two film type connectors in the middle of the motherboard. pull these out and the keyboard comes free. look in the upper left part of the laptop for a small disk type battery with a red and black on white nylon connector. replace this battery. it is a lithium-ion battery.
