reboot

The action of restarting a computer is called reboot. This reloads the operating system and your different auto-start software.

There are two types of reboots: a cold reboot and a warm reboot.

The cold reboot is the one where you turn your computer all the way off and back on. It is considered to be the ultimate reboot which ensures that everything is alright.

The warm reboot is when you just reboot your operating system. This means some of the hardware parts may not be fully reset as expected in a cold reboot. There are several reasons for this, at times the BIOS of your system does not give the correct signals to all the parts, and at times the signal doesn't propagate to all the parts as it should.

This is why a warm reboot does not always work (i.e. think when you change a driver and the new driver is not able to properly reset the state of a board or chip... turning the computer all the way off and back on may resolve the problem.)

  • C
    The C language is one of the oldest. It allows for very fast implementations, but has a huge lack of memory protection.
  • decimal

    Most Database systems offer a number type called DECIMAL. In general, it represents a fixed integer number with a set number of digits on the left side of the decimal point and a set of digits after the decimal point.
