Hi,
Stand by may have disappeared for many reasons so I will give you an alternative.
You can create a standby link on your desktop. To do this, right click on your desktop and select New and then Shortcut. In the location type "%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState" without the quotes and click next. Name the shortcut standby and click finish.

Regards,

To resolve this issue, use the following steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click System
  2. Click the Device Manager tab, and then double-click the System Devices branch to expand it.
  3. Verify that there is an Advanced Power Management Support entry under the System Devices branch. If this entry is present, click it, click Remove, restart your computer, and then skip to step 4. If this entry is not present, use the following steps:

    1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add New Hardware.
    2. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish the Add New Hardware wizard. If this wizard successfully detects and installs support for APM, do not continue with the remaining steps in this article. If this wizard does not successfully detect and install support for APM, your issue may be related to problems with your hardware, and Microsoft recommends you contact your hardware manufacturer for further assistance.
  4. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add New Hardware.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish the Add New Hardware wizard. If this wizard successfully detects and installs support for APM, continue to step 6. If this wizard does not successfully detect and install support for APM, your issue may be related to problems with your hardware, and Microsoft recommends you contact your hardware manufacturer for further assistance.
  6. Restart your computer, and then test to determine if the issue is resolved by clicking Start, and then clicking Shut Down. If the issue is resolved, do not continue with the remaining steps in this article. If the issue is not resolved, continue to step 7.
  7. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click System.
  8. Click the Device Manager tab, double-click the Floppy Disk Controllers branch to expand it, click Standard Floppy Disk Controller, and then click Remove.
  9. Restart your computer. Note that when you do so, Windows automatically detects your floppy disk controller, and the SuspendFlag entries in the registry are reset.
  10. Test to determine if the issue is resolved by clicking Start, and then clicking Shut Down. If the issue is resolved, do not continue with the remaining steps in this article. If the issue is not resolved, continue to step 11.
  11. If you are on a network, contact your network administrator before performing this step.

    NOTE: For information about how to edit the registry, view the Changing Keys And Values online Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe). Note that you should make a backup copy of the registry files (System.dat and User.dat) before you edit the registry.

    WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows 98. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

    Use Registry Editor to view the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VXD\VPOWERD

    Verify that there is a "Flags" value and a "SuspendFlag" value. If these values do not exist, quit Registry Editor, and contact your hardware manufacturer for further assistance. If these values exist, verify that the data value of the "Flags" value is greater than or equal to 200. If it is, modify the data value of the "Flags" value by subtracting 200 from the current value. For example, if the value is currently 310, change it to 110. Change the data value of the "SuspendFlag" value to 0 if it is not already 0.
  12. Restart your computer.

If you are sure your charger is good check the Compaq site for updates for your computer. Vista had lots of problems, I would suggest updating to at least win 7 pro if it's an option.

I have hp dv9700, after improper shutdown kept rebooting


What happened is that you interrupted the disk write on 'saving settings'. Very BAD. You may be able to start in safe mode, by pressing F8 while windows is starting, then selecting options to attempt to repair. The alternative, is to boot from the windows CD and select 'repair'.

Personal Data File did not close properly


Hope this solves it for you! Here's the official word from Microsoft:
If you receive one or more of these error messages, you may experience performance issues until Outlook finishes the reconciliation process for the .ost file or for the .pst file. The following gear icon is displayed in the status bar while Outlook checks the data file in the background: Collapse this imageExpand this imageol2007gearicon.jpg When this icon disappears, the .pst file or the .ost file is reconciled. If you exit Outlook while the gear icon is present, reconciliation must restart the next time that you run Outlook. We recommend that you leave Outlook running until the gear icon disappears before you exit Outlook.

An incorrectly shut down .ost file or .pst file may occur for one of the following reasons:
  • Antivirus scanning of the file
  • Forced Microsoft Windows shutdown before the Outlook.exe process shuts down completely
  • Outlook add-ins
If you see this issue frequently, and you have to exit Outlook shortly before you shut down your computer, it may be better to shut down Windows while Outlook is still running. We recommend that you do this instead of exiting Outlook and then shutting down Windows shortly after that.

Do you have any important files that you want to keep?

If so, when the boot screen comes up, select to start windows vista and press F8. choose "Safe Mode". copy all of your files to a flash drive or burn them to a disk.

If not, insert your vista DVD and have your BIOS boot from it.
then it will ask you to do an upgrade or clean install; do a clean install.

Do not interrupt the installation until it finishes.
If you made any backups, now is the time to copy them to your computer.
