8. Troubleshooting

Key Vocabulary

Factory Reset; A factory reset is a more drastic step that erases all the data and settings on your device, restoring it to its original factory state. It is usually done as a last resort when other troubleshooting methods have failed or when you want to erase all personal information before selling or giving away the device. It is important to note that a factory reset will delete all your data, so it's crucial to back up any important files before performing this action.

Hard Reset: A hard reset is a more forceful way to restart your device. It involves holding down specific buttons or keys to force the device to turn off and then turning it back on. It is typically used when the device is frozen or unresponsive.

Power Cycle: Power cycling is another term for restarting. It involves completely shutting down your device and then turning it on again.

Restart: A restart is turning off your device and then turning it back on again. It helps refresh the software and can fix minor issues or glitches.
