    Yes. Resuming from hibernate, various usb hardware that was there and now not, etc. brings on messages like that. Post your operating system for more specific help along with what happened before that message appeared and I will help you. Steve

If you have a laptop, it has a function called Hibernate. In this, the entire thing that is running, as it is in the RAM, is stored in a place on your hard disk and the PC is shut down. It resumes everything when it is switched on later.
The place reserved on the hard disk is a small thing called 'hibernation.sys' and it is as big as your RAM. If you don't need it, you can delete it through the command line or Disk Cleanup. 
Now, the problem you are in is that the file has been deleted, mostly through cleanup and the system cannot hibernate anymore. I recommend that you use System Restore and roll back the computer to when there wasn't any problem. This won't harm your personal files. Now, remember to uncheck 'Hibernation Files' or similar in Disk Cleanup to avoid deleting it.
Or else, there is another way to restore the file without using the time consuming System Restore. See this.

Tip

How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows


The Hiberfil.sys hidden system file is located in the root folder of the drive where the operating system is installed. The Windows Kernel Power Manager reserves this file when you install Microsoft Windows. The size of this file is approximately equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) that is installed on the computer.
The computer uses the Hiberfil.sys file to store a copy of the system memory on the hard disk when the hybrid sleep setting is turned on. If this file is not present, the computer cannot hibernate.
Hibernation is made unavailable when you set the value of the Hibernate after setting to Never by using the Power Options item in Control Panel. To make hibernation unavailable, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER.
To make hibernation available, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

Windows could not start, file is missing or corrupt-windows, system 32, config system. to repair file using original setup CD-ROM, select "r" at first screen to start repair. What is this?


Hi !

If you enter in Windows XP set up, below instructions will appear:

1. To set up Windows XP not, press ENTER.
2. To repair Windows XP installation using windows console, press R.
3. To quit set up with installing Windows XP, press F3.

By pressing ENTER means it will repair your operating system and it will delete all your files in hard disk drive leaving nothing to that particular drive or partition.

By pressing R means it will repair your operating system files only and it will not remove your files.

By pressing F3, it will exit the Windows XP set up.

I hope this is helpful and thank you for using FixYa !

Missing language on pc .i go to control panel to language and regional but the language is missing


Hello.

Give this a try:

Click Start -> Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options.
Click the "Keyboards and Languages" tab, and then click "Change Keyboards".
Here, under the General tab, you will have to add a secondary language to your keyboard, if not you will not be able to view the language bar. To do this click Add, and select the language you wish to use, click OK.

If this does not help, or you do not have Vista, please let me know.
