Graphics card drivers

Apparently a problem with the drivers for my GeForce 8500GT graphics card won't let my PC enter and or stay in sleep / hibernation mode. Is there an easy solution for this?

    I have the same problem and called customer support and they told me to buy a 400 watt power supply. Another person bought a 430 and still have the same problem. This video card has an issue that still has not been resolved.

    My XFX Force 8599GT video cards sucks. Higher resolution than 640x480 isn't supported. I contacted NVIDIA and they were able to diagnose a bad card. I contacted XFORCE and their answer was to re-install windows. The Hail-Mary of answers when they don't know what is going on. Not a good experience with XFX. Even when I inquired about upgrading to a different card, they were not interested. Basically a cordial conversation that ended with sorry, re-install windows. We feel our card is working perfectly. Must be a software issue on your machine. Even if this is true and it very well might be, they should be able to give a better answer. They claim to have seen this before.

    I would urge consumers to purchase a video card from a different company. I am certainly NEVER going to buy XFX again.

    Ironically, I demanded this card as an upgrade to my new system. What a fool I am.

Yes, right-click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab and Device Manager. Find your graphics card in the list. Click on the "+" sign to get your model. RIght click on your model. Click on update driver to make sure you have the latest driver. Also, there is a Troubleshooting tab. If that is OK, then go back to Control Panel. Click on Power Options. Set Sleep and Hibernation to how you want them.
