Hi,
To reset the PRAM, I typically just restart the computer while holding the "Option Command + PR" keys. Never seems to solve whatever problem I'm having - but all works well.

Am I doing this right?? I just read you need to shut down (meaning turning the MacBook Pro off?), and start up the machine while holding said keys for 3 chimes.

Will a restart while holding the keys do it properly, or must I shut the computer OFF first, then turn it back on?

Maybe I've been doing it wrong ??
Thanks,

Larry
