Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

How do i reboot my laptop advent 7087 - PC Desktops

Answers :

Rebooting is a function of the operating system and Ctrl Alt Del, works the same on all hardware platforms or you can choose the shutdown / reboot option from the start menu.

If the operating system has hung completely most machines will switch off if you just hold the power button down for 5 seconds or so. This should only be used as a last resort when nothing else will shut the computer is down. This is equivalent to pulling the plug out of the wall for a desk top computer.

Beyond that you can disconnect the power and pull the battery out but it should never come to that.

I hope this answer matches your question.
