    not sure how to do what you are saying, I did try removing the power cord, then hook it back up and try to boot, starts to boot, then goes dead. would removing the backup battery for a few seconds help?

    I some how got it to boot and turned off the power management.

    rebooted and now it seems fine.

    had the side panel off, was hitting the power supply test button, then hit the power button, 1st time it crashed soon as I saw my desktop, the 2nd attempt worked. doh, dunno, but for now, seems alright, but I won't be using the hibernate setting anymore,

    thanks for your responce, tc and happy new year.

When I take my laptop out of hibernation mode, it automatically (almost 95% of the time) goes to a blue screen with very tiny lettering and then re-boots itself. After the re-boot, things seem to be ok.


It's crashing when you take it out of hibernation. Try not to use hibernation mode, in my experience it's more trouble than it's worth , especially with laptops. Also do a search for problems relating to hibernation on your laptop (ie your make and model), there should be a solution out there somewhere, and try the support section of the manufacturers website.

Should I Leave my PC in sleep mode after use?


Go green & use hibernate instead.
Well, actually a lot also depends upon what is the duration of you not using the system between breaks. Hibernate anyways is quicker than a normal boot process. I would highly recommend hibernate.
Sleep - is a combination of stand by and hibernate. Be default most of the newer system will write the memory info into hibernation file & put your system to stand by mode. After certain period say 2-3 hours your system will go into hibernate mode. (these are standard settings & unless you keep coming back in 15-20 mins you should use hibernate & contribute towards environment too)

No boot, screen blank after hibernation


NTLDR is missing Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette is in.

Getting into Windows Safe Mode Users who may not be able to boot into normal mode or are not able to .... This is the most basic Safe Mode option and has no additional support.

Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

Desk top won't display-hibernation mode


Hi,

Based on your post of failure to boot due to hibernation, you can try removing the battery and AC adapter connection for an hour or so. Thereafter, insert battery back and charge but don't power up. Allow the laptop to charge for a couple of hours. Try powering up/booting. Press F8 to start in Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode disable Hibernation.

If the laptop still fails to power up, then it may be entirely another problem.

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.

Stand by icon locked Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103


i really need more info, two things:

firstly look to see if the clip (where the screen clips onto the base when it closes) is mobile and is not jammed down from something.

secondly restart, if a image comes up in your POST (when the computer boots up) push tab and then F8 or similar (it will say just read the screen = ] ) and restart windows in safe mode.

when you have booted up in safe mode check in the display and power window and tell the computer to never go into sleep or hibernate.

like i said i need more info cause this can also be caused bu a hdd contact error, or a battery falure, so please if this does not help in the slightest just post up here more info and i will be happy to help further.

good luck.

By-pass Hibernation


Instructions: Power off the system and wait a few seconds to make sure that hard drive has spun down. Hold down the "Backspace" key while powering on system. The following message should appear: Warning: Can't restore Hibernated State. Press any key to continue. After pressing a key on the keyboard, the system will continue with the boot process and the hibernation/standby mode will be by-passed.
