What will you do if your desktop computer is "hung"? First try to "revive" it by calling the task Manager and trying to complete work does not meet program. The same should be taken in the case, when "stuck" laptop.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and start the Windows task Manager. Select the program whose status is "Not responding" and click "end task". This should return the operating system to a working state.
If using task Manager failed to remove 'freeze', you must resort to drastic measures. As in the case with a desktop computer, press the power button on the laptop and hold it for a few seconds. This action should lead to power down the laptop.
If the power button doesn't click, on a PC you can press another button – Reset (restart), and if this does not work – put the switch in the Off position on the power supply, or eventually to remove the power cord from the outlet. But the laptop should act otherwise.
In the case of mobile computer can't find the Reset button and switch on the power supply and removing the power cord from the outlet, you will achieve nothing, as the laptop will continue to run on battery. However, the problem is easily solved – you should turn off the battery itself for a few seconds.
To do this, simply disconnect the power cord, close the lid of the laptop, flip the computer upside down, and then disconnect the battery pack from the laptop case. On most portable computers do this by moving the clip. Disconnecting the battery, you are guaranteed to turn off "hovering" laptop.
Forced shutdown should be resorted to in exceptional cases, as this may result in the loss of running apps and even damage to the hard drive.
