hello, i have installed windows 7 OS (32 bit) on my hp compaq dc5100 mt base unit. everyting is working fine till now, but whenever i click on restrat, the pc doesn't take restart. after dispalying the BIOS options, the screen remains dark. i have to press the power key manually to shut it down. then again when i press the power key, it starts again and everything is okay then. is there any problem in the bios settings?

This sounds like a hang on the next boot that is only failing on a "warm" boot (versus a "cold" boot or power on). What version of the BIOS are you using? Have you tried upgrading to the latest available onine? Do you have any USB devices connected on your system?
Hope this helps.
