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.
Advice 2 : How to restart a laptop
List the reasons for the unresponsiveness of the computer/laptop is quite large: crashing the system files of the operating system, overloading of system resources, a bad sector on the hard drive, overheating of internal parts, damage from viruses and other. When the laptop freezes it should be restarted.

Laptops, unlike desktops, do not have the case Reset button. Therefore, when hanging the system user is one solution: fully shut down the device. For this you have to press the power button and keep pressed until until the laptop shuts down (usually 30 seconds). Usually button all the time kept in the pressed state. Users often do not wait for time off, and think that their laptop is not turned off.
If the shutdown occurred due to severe overheating (it feels abnormally hot air near the ventilation holes of your laptop), give it time to cool down. Operation of the laptop in this condition will damage components, and will necessarily lead to imminent failure. Can use special stands that have built-in fans for cooling.
If the result of the forced shutdown of the laptop has failed to boot, use system restore. Some laptops (e.g. Samsung) have built-in recovery partition system. Insert the operating system disk and select "system Restore".
If after a forced shutdown the laptop does not respond to pressing the power button, contact the service center. Most likely, the device hang-up occurred due to an internal defect of parts, to eliminate that can only specialists. Do not attempt to open the laptop case yourself. Such actions will void your warranty on the device if the warranty period has not yet ended. Contact the experts at the service center, and you will definitely help to solve this problem, but you will have to pay.
