How can I restart my laptop if it hangs?
Now it is impossible to imagine life withoutour constant satellites: computers, laptops, tablets and telephones. This technique is in almost every house, and from time to time we have to fight with it. If there are failures and problems in work, your laptop can not say what bothers it, it reacts in its own way - it turns off or hangs. How to restart the laptop, if there was such a trouble?
Why is the laptop crashed?
It can hang for the following reasons:
- failure of the program;
- a failure in the operation of the operating system;
- problems with "stuffing": motherboard, memory, video card, processor, etc.
How to restart your laptop
Since restarting the laptop from the keyboard of onebutton does not work, as you would do it from a desktop computer with the "Reset" button on the system unit, for this purpose you will have to use other methods.
The first way is software
Using the Start panel of your operating system
We execute the following sequence of commands:"Start" - "Shutdown" - "Restart". If at the moment of hangup your mouse fails, the cursor stops moving, try switching to the touchpad of your laptop (touchpad) using the Fn + F7 key combination.
Using Task Manager
Before you restart your laptop, it's worthTry to close the program or process that caused the hangup, using Task Manager. You can open it by pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL. Then select the desired program and click the "End the process" button. If this action can not be performed, you can only reboot the entire system
Using the command line
To call it, press the Win + R keys, then in theCommand-line enter "cmd" and press Enter, and then type the command "shutdown -r -t 0" - it means restart the laptop immediately. But suddenly your laptop is frozen! How do I reset it if it does not respond to commands and the mouse cursor does not move? Then the second method will help you.
The second way is mechanical
Switching off with the "Power" button - the buttonturn on and off the laptop. Hold it for a few seconds, this will forcibly close all open programs and turn off the laptop. To resume operation, click this button again. It is often better not to resort to such a method of resetting, since the basic breakdowns of all electrical devices occur precisely at the moment of switching on and off, when there is a power surge. But how to restart the laptop, if it does not react to the "Off" button? Try the third method.
The third way is to de-energize
If you have a laptop connected to the network, disconnect it andremove the battery, it will de-energize it, and it will shut itself down. Wait a few minutes, then put the battery back on or connect the laptop to the network. By pressing the "Power" button you will start it again.
What if the hang is repeated?
If the hang is repeated with a certainperiodicity, then this is a serious problem, and perhaps your laptop needs repair. First of all, pay attention to the nature of the hang and on what program was open at that moment. If the case is in it, then you have to remove it and reinstall it. You may be able to reinstall the operating system, especially if you have not done so for a long time. But if nothing helped, call the master or carry the laptop for repair.
