If your computer is working properly, you probably shouldn’t update your BIOS.
I then have to unplug it and plug it back in; then when I push the start button it will resume Windows.Someone suggested that I reinstall Windows as it was a corrupt install. I'm hoping that someone might give me some information to help me correct this.Here are a few cases where updating makes sense: Be sure to check the change log for the BIOS updates and see if they actually have an update you require.If you are not experiencing any bugs that have been fixed and don’t need the hardware support, don’t bother updating.Manufacturers often release updates to their computers’ BIOSes.
If you built your own computer, a BIOS update would come from your motherboard vendor.
Right click on the start menu and select properties.
One of the options in the start menu tab is what to do when the power button is pressed. I had a similar problem, I would shut the computer down, lo and behold 5 minutes later it would be running again.

Please be as detailed as you can when providing a solution for her. It sounds like your computer is set to restart when the power button is pressed rather than shutting down.
Computers should ideally have a backup BIOS stored in read-only memory, but not all computers do.
