Try pressing the power button next time. That will help you to turn on from an Hibernation.
Alternative you can disable this feature (not recommended for laptops)

  1. Open Control Panel.
    • On the Windows XP default Start menu, click Control Panel.
    • On the Windows XP classic Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, open Power Options.
    • If the computer is in Category View, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.
    • If the computer is in Classic View, double-click the Power Options icon.

  3. In the Power Options Properties dialog box, click the Hibernate tab.
  4. On the Hibernate tab, clear the Enable hibernatation check box, click Apply, and then click OK.

Want to know how to undo FN Hotkeys: i.e., FN Esc. How may I reactivate screen after I put it to standby, 0r FN F1 when in Hibernate mode. Please notify how to properly activate and DEACTIVATE...


Trying using the "numlock" key it should undo the Fn hot keys. If your notebook is in hibernate state, using the power-up switch on the notebook will activate you notebook. This will ask you for a password, if you have been using one to logon to you notebook. The FN+F4 or F5 will toggle between a blank screen and a display.

The problem youve discribed does seem to point to your back light has failed on the laptops lcd display, i dont know exactly how this would accure just using a projector though, go into bios again and try loading factory settings.

This problem could also be the inverter if you cant make out even a slight image on the screen.

let me know what happens. thanks

The laptop was unplugged and went into standby mode when the battery ran out. I have recharged the battery but the standby indicator is still on and nothing happens when I try to start it.


can you take out your battery and plug in the power? if it works, i suspected it's a battery faulty. if not please make sure to charge up your battery up to 100% then boot up your machine normally.

Hi,
go to control panel,power options,
change your power settings
stop Hibernation,
" choose what to do when I hit the power button" etc....

Hibernation causes problems with startups

Don't use hibernation, use standby,sleep
or turn it off completly
should cure the problem

Richard.

Puzzled about simultaneous laptop+TV screen viewing way to setup


you still havnt given any extra info.
your pc has s-video your tv has s-video..
you link it up to view pc data on tv via fn +f4....(or whichever f key with square icon on it)
as soon as you link up nothing is seen on tv press fn key and f4 key together and you can see image on tv and pc press again image only on tv press again image only on pc again....
to watch continuous go to control panel click display,select screen saver and click powe and disable or reconfig sleep mode,hibernate.
eg..turn of monitor=never...turn off disks=never...system standby=never....change minute countdown in screensaver.
eg wait =5min change field to 2000min...
to view screen size on tv you use tv config 4.3,16.9,cinema,widescreen etc...

go to the system tray and click once on the "Safely Remove Hardware Icon"
click on your dvd/cdrw to stop it. when it says it's safe, go ahead and remove the drive.

reboot

reinstall the drive and windows should automatically pick it up

also. go to --

Start -> Control Panel -> Power Options ->
Under Power Schemes set all the options under the ac power header to NEVER

Notebook System Crash


Hey there SeanJohn79, have you tried hooking an external monitor to your laptop. You can move the video output back and forth, from external, LCD + external, LCD using Fn + F7. Hopefully this will allow you to see the necessary info for diagnosing the problem. Good Luck. Keep us posted! In case you are not aware, these are some display related key functions:
Fn + F3 = turn off lcd
Fn + F8 =Switch computer screen size
Fn + F12 =Hibernation mode, power for 4 secs releases.
Fn + F4 = Standby mode, press Fn key to return to normal
If you haven't tried switching some of these, give it a shot.
