I just started a update on my HP desktop and came to check on it later. I heard that there was some unusual whirring (fan maybe?) and noticed the screen was black and nothing happened for 15 minutes. At this point I tried to hold down the power button to try to turn off my computer, but it did not work. I waited another 30 minutes and the situation did not change, there was still whirring and the power button still failed to load. I was tempted to go pull the power cord, but I didn't want to break my computer. Is there any way to safely restart my computer? Sorry that I don't have any other information as I don't remember my specs off the top of my head.
