Resetting System

You may need to restart the system if your computer hangs up or a new hardware or
software is installed. When a message appears after the installation, click OK, Yes, etc.
to restart Windows.
You can also restart Windows by clicking start - Turn Off Computer; then, Restart.

Warm Boot (Software Reset)

If the system is locked up because of a software problem, you can reset or reboot the
system by pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys simultaneously and select Applications tab
of Windows Task Manager dialog box. Click the program name which hangs up, then,
End Task. If this does not solve the problem, click Disconnect or Logoff of Windows
Task Manager
dialog box, then Yes.

Resetting may cause data loss. Use the resetting process only if the
normal Windows Shut Down does not work because of software
malfunction. Although resetting will not damage the system, you may
lose the data you are processing.
