hi guys, i hope someone can help me resolve this:

A computer case i bought doesn't have a small "restart button", which i often used to restart my comp when OS completely freezes or i get blue screen of death or any other similar situation in which i cannot use anything but the restart button or unplug the power cable to restart the computer...


so i was wondering if there is a way to "create" that restart button through some configuration in BIOS or smth similar, so i can restart the computer using keyboard when OS completely freezes

that unplugging and plugging in the power supply cable doesnt seem safe to do every time this occurs

any help is appreciated!

You don't need a reset button. Just press and hold down the power button until the system shuts down. Cheap and easy!

BTW, you could always find an old reset switch from another case and attach it to the mobo and mount in your case (would likely need to drill out or leave hanging loose). But the switch really isn't needed if you use the power button to power off the system as I described above. Good luck!!!

A better solution would be to find out whats is causing your computer to freeze and fix it..
