PC Shut Down and Restart (Reboot)

I. PRINCIPLE:

Windows PCs are to be shut down and restarted daily to reload computer software into memory because, over time, Windows can exhibit erratic behavior. When encountering problems using a PC try “Rebooting” or performing a Shut Down and Restart to see if the problem is resolved. If the problem persists after a reboot, call LIS Support Staff.

II. PROCEDURE:

  1. Close and Exit all open applications:
    Note: All applications are closed when nothing is visible except the Windows desktop and an empty Task Bar.
    1. Using the mouse, “left click” on the upper right hand corner [X] in every open window.
      Or
    2. Using the mouse, “left click” File in the upper left of the window, then select “Close” in every open window.
      Or
    3. Using the mouse, move the cursor to the application on the task bar and “right click”. Select “Close”.
  2. Using the mouse, move cursor to the lower left-hand side of the monitor, “left click” the START button located on the Task Bar.
  3. A dialog box will display that offers several options, select “Shut Down…”.
  4. The Shut Down dialog box will display various options. “Left click” the radio button preceding “Restart the computer?” and “left click” the “Yes” button.
  5. Wait for the computer to reboot.
    Note: Restart time is dependent on many variables. It should not take any longer than a couple of minutes.
  6. Windows will reappear with the “Network” logon screen. Type in the assigned username and password (e.g.: User Name: class, Password: class). The domain is always “CSQ”. Press the Enter key to initiate the logon to the network.
  7. The Print Screen Deluxe Application will automatically open on restart. Minimize the Print Screen application:
    1. “Left click” the [_] (minimize) button located in the upper right hand corner of the screen (next to the [ο] (restore) and [X] (close) buttons).
      Or
    2. Using the mouse, move the cursor to the application on the task bar and “right click” and select “Minimize”.
