Preferred Solution: DeviceIoControl VS WriteFile and ReadFile

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The same code works on Win7 and Win8.1 but Win10 doesn't allow me to do a hard-reset by sending vendor specific HCI command.
