Turning Off Frozen Computers

Computer Coaching for Seniors Ottawa Canada

You are in a bad mood because your computer is in a bad mood.

It started innocently. You were reading E-mail and listening to your favorite tunes when.. BOOM... your computer refused to listen to you. You frantically moved the mouse up, down, sideways, diagonally, and... NOTHING. With great Herculean force, you pounded the keys; A, CTRL, TAB, and a couple of ENTERs. Perhaps random combination of keys was all that was needed to appease your computer. BUT NO!!!!! Ice cold silence was returned.

You knew you had to restart the computer. You pressed the power button but..... the computer would not turn off. Reduced to tears you shouted at the heavens, "WHY MEEEEE?!?!"


In newer computers pressing the power button may not turn off the computer. You will need to hold down the power button for 5 seconds before it shuts off.
