This is a Mac Mini with a 60Gb partition with Win 7 installed. I have discovered that whenever I "Restart" as prompted after updates or using the Restart option in the Start menu the computer seems to shut down fine but then just hangs with a black screen instead of restarting. I am then forced to shut down by holding in the power button. It always starts up fine from a cold boot but i do want to resolve this issue as I am not comfortable with forced shut downs in case it causes damage.
Some trawling of the web suggests that the only difference between Restart and doing a full Shut Down and then powering up is that the latter clears the BIOS. I am hesitant to start messing around with the BIOS as I have no experience of that.
Can anyone suggest what might cause this issue or what I should be doing to resolve it?Moved from External Hardware to Internal Hardware ~ Hamluis.
