Hibernating does just what it says, shutting down will do what it says shut down. While hibernating if you press the power button it will take you back to where you last were. It uses a bit of power but will not run the cpu or hard drive.

Hi,

Have a look at your power options through control panel.

Set the computers display, hard drive to never turn off. also disable sleep mode.

If you have all these settings already set to this then whoever told you that the graphics card is overheating could be right.

The only other thing i could suggest is to update you display drivers through the manufacturers website.





Good luck.

I am unable to unhibernate


Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation off...you can always just have the computer sleep...it is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Problem with my display its black


Based on what you are stating, could be power supply problem. Try replacing power supply adapter that Dell supplies. Go on Dell support page using your computer number and you can see if there are any manufacturers recall on the computer or the power supply.

Porblems shutting down my new Dell Inspiron Vista (32 bit) Notebook


ROB, TRY GOING INTO POWER OPTIONS AND GO THROUGH THE SETTING THERE. IT HAS DIFFERENT SETTING THAT SAY THINGS LIKE " WHEN I CLOSE THE LID ON MY LAPTOP I WANT IN TO GO TO SLEEP" ETC. YOU SHOULD FIND A SETTING THERE THAT HANDLES WHEN I HIT SHUT DOWN I WANT THE COMPUTER TO I.E. SLEEP, HIBERNATE,STANDBY. I THINK YOU SHOULD GET THE IDEA. CHECK THOSE AND SEE IF THIS HELPS SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Dell comp


Hi,
To help you better , could you let me know , when the system goes into sleep mode, the power light in the front of the tower is it amber or blinking amber or is it of some other color.

If the power button is blinking amber , the power supply on the unit is going bad.


Thanks
