AnswerI think. the difference is when you restart. (ex: a computer.) the systems is half awake. like some virtual memory' though eventually coming to shutting down and running again. in shutdown of course, it will gradually coming to a stop. all of the system itself. (only if you choose shutdown/restart from windows scroll bar.)

Sometimes a computer needs to restart because of programs it needs to upload, or updates to update. In some cases it restores because it is being over-heated you can put a fan near a place were its hot to cool it down so it doesn't shut down.

XP's power management allows you to define what the computer does when the power button is pressed. It may be on your system that it is set to hibernate instead of power off. Also, depending on the shutdown procedure being used, a program may not be relinquishing control to the operating system. Choosing Start -> Restart is a "cleaner" reboot sequence and so the program is not forced to abruptly terminate, instead it is allowed to properly shut itself down which avoids any hang-ups like the one portrayed in the question.

The function of ctrl-alt-delete may vary between operating systems. In windows, it is typically used to access the task manager to monitor or shutdown various processes or to shutdown the computer itself.

On Mac: if your computer reaches a certain temperature, it will shut off by itself because of Apple's safety feature. On Windows: if you have selected the option to automatically shut down your computer after a period of inactivity, it will shut itself down. Other cases might be an auto restart from a software.

I'm not sure if I understand the question completely, but you should restart your computer when you install anything. It makes the installation take effect and your game should prompt you to do so.

Shutdown the unit gracefully. Restart the unit with the power switch. Let the Ubuntu Linux run all its checks from cold. It may be able to repair itself. Let us know if this fails to help.

If we don't you might loose the Harddisk. If it is still writing data to the disk the disk might be corrupted. Besides that, your OS is most likely running from it. You might also cause physical damage to the PC itself. Just shutdown your PC and then replace the HDD.

The key difference between a computer virus and a computer worm is that a virus cannot be spread without human action, such as you running an infected file, wheras a worm can copy itself on your system and automatically send itself without you having to run a file.

No. The CPU is NOT a storage device. It is where the computer does the "thinking" and actual data processing. In fact, the CPU IS the computer itself.

"stand by" is the option when user want their system in stand by mode,but user programs will still running. "Hibernate" is done by the system itself, it is when your battery power is very low, the system shutdown itself, and the system does not open until the battery will charged.

Java itself is 100% safe to have installed on your computer. Programs written in Java, however, may still harm your computer. Always look for user reviews before running ANY unknown program on your computer.

The software that it is running. (Low level memory management itself comes down to the operating system though)

User Avatar

the computer's RAM is playing up and restarts when there is massive load or your Operating system files might be corrupt, or if you have just installed a new hardware or software which might be causing this.

User Avatar

We do not actually know what will or could happen.

If it does not fully load within 30 seconds you should ether exit out or restart computer and once you let the computer sit with power on for about 45-1hour if it dose not work within a hour call for help.

A computer mainly locks up when it cannot preform a task. Most the time the computer will try to terminate what is freezing it if it cannot continue running. Sometimes the computer will terminate a program that is used to run itself so that is why it occasionally crashes offline.
