How dare you NOT restart your computer before asking for help?

Why would you bother wasting someone’s valuable time before restarting your computer?

Ok, maybe you don't know how to restart your computer; I will show you how to do.

I will show you how to restart Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS X.

 Also I will show you know to do a manual restart.

Looking to " Restart your computer as new ( format ) " we have that also!

More to come check back soon!

Windows 7:
At the bottom of the screen on the lower left hand side you will see the Windows Flag button, click on it.
Then click on Shut Down, it will Open a menu with several shut down options,
including Switch User, Logoff, Lock, Restart, Sleep, and Shut Down. Click on RESTART ! [hit that button!]

(Wasn't that easy?)

Windows XP:
Click on start and hit Shut Down and you will see where it says RESTART !  [hit that button!]

Windows Vista:
At the bottom of the Windows Flag there are some buttons.
From left to right, they are Standby (circle), Lock (lock), and Shut Down (arrow).

Manual Restart:
Your PC or Mac isn't restarting with those examples! What do you do?
You press and hold the power button for 5-10 seconds until it powers down.
Then wait 1 minute and power it back on!
You should only do this if your computer is froze! It could damage your hardware!
(Wasn't that easy?)

But of course you really shouldn't have to restart a Mac.

1) Insert your Windows CD.
2) Reboot the computer. It should either boot from the CD automatically or ask if you would like to boot from the CD. If it does not do either, you may need to change some boot settings in your BIOS. Consult your PC manufacture if you need help with this step.
3)Windows Setup will begin.
4) When asked if you want to set up or repair, hit Enter to set up Windows.
5) Read the license agreement and hit F8 if you agree.
6) If the setup program detects an existing installation of Windows and asks if you want to repair it, hit Esc to skip the repair.
7) The setup program will ask you where to install Windows. Highlight the existing "C: Partition1" partition and hit D to delete it.
8) Hit L to confirm.
9) Next, hit Enter to install Windows on the "Unpartitioned Space".
10) Format the space as NTFS and continue the installation.

Restart your Mac as new: Mac Only
(Reinstall OS X Leopard)

To start your Leopard installation, simply insert the Mac OS X Leopard Install DVD and double-click the Install Mac OS X icon.
You can also start by inserting the Install DVD and restarting your computer while holding down the C key, or by selecting the Install DVD as your startup disk using Startup Disk preferences.
Default installation if Mac OS X is already installed
When the Mac OS X Installer opens, follow the onscreen instructions to select your Mac OS X startup disk. Eligible disk volumes appear with a green arrow icon. By default, the installer will upgrade your currently-installed version of Mac OS X to Mac OS X 10.5 / 10.6 Leopard.
If you need to quit the installer before the actual installation process begins, choose Quit Mac OS X Installer from the Mac OS X Installer application menu, and then click Startup Disk to select a startup disk for your computer.
Archive and Install choice
This option moves existing system files to a folder named Previous System, and then installs a new copy of Mac OS X. This option is available only for volumes with Mac OS X already installed. Usually, if you select this method, you will want to also select (check) "Preserve Users and Network Settings" which imports existing user accounts, home folders, and your network settings into the new system.
Erase and Install
If you want to erase your disk before installing Mac OS X Leopard, select this option then click OK. Important: This option erases the entire disk, so make sure you've backed up your important files first.
If you want to partition your disk before installing, use Disk Utility (choose Disk Utility from the Utilities menu). In Disk Utility, click
 Partition. If you partition the disk, you can select a disk format including Mac OS Extended (Journaled), Mac OS Extended (Case-
Sensitive), and Mac OS Extended (Case-Sensitive, Journaled). In most cases, you should choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). After
 partitioning, quit Disk Utility to return to the Leopard Installer. Important: Partitioning the disk erases the entire disk, so make sure you
 back up your important files first.
