How to Reboot My Toshiba Laptop


When new hardware or software is added to a Toshiba laptop, it often requires a reboot to finish the process. A reboot can also be used as a simple solution to a frozen computer. While a reboot may sound like a complicated computer task, it is actually quite simple because the term “reboot” means to restart the computer. Regardless of the reason your computer needs a reboot, the process is the same.

  • Close all of the programs that are currently in use. The reboot will run faster if you close all programs first.

  • Open the Start menu and click “Shut Down.” If you use Windows Vista or later, move the cursor over the arrow next to the Shut Down button and wait for the list of power options to pop up.

  • Click “Restart” from the list of power options.

  • Click on “Close” if a prompt pops up to ask if you want to close any programs that are currently open. It is possible for programs to remain open without you realizing it.

  • Wait for the computer to reboot. If the power doesn't turn on automatically, you may need to manually press the power button.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the computer is frozen and you cannot access the Start menu, simply press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down. Press the power button again to turn the computer back on.
