Warm & Cold booting



Warm boot

Alternatively referred to as a soft boot, a warm boot is one method of resetting a computer system that is already powered on, commonly used to recover from errors that cannot be recovered, or when a computer locks. A warm boot can be accomplished by pressing the CTRL – ALT – DEL keys simultaneously, or by selecting the restart command from an operating system menu. Warm boots run faster than turning a computer off and on again.


Cold boot

Alternatively referred to as a hard boot, a cold boot is a term used to describe the process of turning on the computer after it has been powered off. For example, when you first turn your computer on after being off for the night that is referred to as cold booting the computer.
