A. restarting MIGHT help, but probably won't. Just hold down the power button for like 5 seconds and it should shut off.

Q. My friend gave me her computer to try and fix and I'm kind of lost. This is an asus computer without a cd drive and no operating system. Windows was previously install and then was removed.
