No. A hockey game would have no reason to be restarted.

I would restart the computer with a cold reboot.

you would restart your computer to install updates or return your computer to a fresh state when you have been running a lot of prgrams that would still be running in the background even after closeing them

In most cases, no you would not have to restart your computer after backing it up. A backup is just an extra copy of your data that your computer stores in another location. That way, if your computer has problems or your data is deleted you can restore the backup to retrieve your data. Creating a backup file does not require you to restart your computer, since all the computer is doing is copying your data to another location.

I would try this first. Close everything and shut down the computer and unplug it. Then plug it in and restart the computer.

I am assuming that windows would usual restart on a particular instance, but with this option windows will not restart if a problematic occurs on the system. Maybe such as a blue screen of death. Safe thing to do is use this feature if have know some common issues with your system.

* What does the computer do when you attempt to boot it up? * What operating system? The computer would just shut down completely after selecting 'restart.' No problems booting up thereafter. I have Windows XP Service Pack 2. I have determined what the problem was. It was due to enabled software called Window Washer 5.0. When I disabled it, my computer is now able to go into restart mode.

If one is trying to recover their computer from a crash, the best way is to restart the computer to see if it loads. If this does not work, one may consider booting in safe mode and using the system restore option. Should this not work, one would need to either reformat the computer or take it to a local computer repair shop.

You are tuned into one. Restart your computer and it will go away.EDIT:This also can mean you have a virus on your computer. I would recommend scanning your computer for potential threats.

It might be a virus. Or perhaps windows has a missing component

That would be using the menu system to restart the computer. A shut down is a cool boot.

Yes, this computer would be a good option if you need to edit a lot of movies because it comes with a good processor and a lot of storage space.

Followsame the same procedure as shutdown.the options would come whether to turn off, stand by or restart. Press shift key and in the place of stand by hibernate option would come.Click that option to hibernate your system

A soft boot should be used on your computer any time that you press restart after installing updates, or programs. A soft boot is when you allow all programs to close before you restart. The only time you would use a hard boot is when you have to restart without allowing programs to close first.

Go to https://www.google.com/chrome/ and download it. Though your school computer may have something called deep-freeze, if so Chrome would be deleted if you restart the computer.

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.

there probably would be something wrong with your computer so my best bet would be to turn off or restart your computer Or you could just download iTunes and click on it when you plug your iPod in =)

If the Van runs fine for as long as you drive and idle it until you shut it off and try to restart it, it is possibly the egr valve if present. Does it have one and does the van run better after runnning it for a while on the restart?

On a MAC Power-PC computer it would allow you to boot to the Open Firmware prompt (alows you to manage the hardware connected to the computer).

it is put on the sideline (at the place it crossed out of play) and restarted like a foul would be
