There are times when you need to shutdown/restart the computer. There is no escape from shutting down the computer and starting fresh; and this could be more frequent than people would think. Though there could be some potential problems with repeatedly restarting your computer, below are some of the signs that signal a need to restart your dear computer and save sometime of your day–and saves you sometime of aimlessly looking into the computer configurations:
- When the network adapter (wired or WiFi) starts acting funny (i.e you can’t seem to be able to connect to any available network near you)
- When the screen halts for more than 2 minute.
- The application you just installed doesn’t function as it should
- The mouse pointer doesn’t seem to be found and/or it no longer moves
If you want to restart your computer yet it won’t restart because it’s stuck, then press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds and this will force a shutdown (it’s called: Hard reset). Wait 5 more seconds and press the power button again.
