Turning off a Computer

Specs: Windows 7 Home Editrion, DDRSDRAM
Hi All

If you shut down your computer and unplug it from the power supply and leave the computer off for months, will the computer start up as normal again when you restart it, or will you have to reinstall the operating system and software?

Do all computers today have DDR SDRAM?

Regards John

The only impact setting for long periods can have is the CMOS battery can run down. That will make the BIOS revert to default settings. Shouldn't impact the computer running.

There are at least 3 versions of DDR RAM. Most new computers are now using DDR3. See the link below for more on RAM.
