Windows XP Pro 64-bit intermittantly wont come out of 'Sleep' mode or waken

My PC was running sweet from new and I used to be able to press the 'Sleep' button on the keyboard, it closed down and then wakened when I moved the mouse. But recently it wont come out of the standby / suspend mode and just lets the monitor light flash. I then have to reboot. The PC actually must have crashed as the Cap Lock will not go on and the monitor screen just remains black

Any help appreciated as I've searched the net but can't get a solution

    I have the same problem, but I have windows vista. I go into sleep, and then when I want to use it again, I press the power button lightly to try and wake up my laptop, the sleep light goes out, but it wont wake up. I try pressing buttons. Maybe i have my setting wrong or something. Maybe I just don't know how to wake it up. I am manually shutting down to restart to use, Help.

Hi,
Try turning off, and unplugging the monitor.
then replace the cable between monitor and pc.
if you still get no action, i,d suggest looking at the graphics card.
if it,s a pci card, try it in a different slot on the motherboard.
if it,s agp try an alternative card, if it,s onboard, try adding an additional card to the system, to see if that brings the monitor out of standby.

How to install primavera3 32bit to a laptop which is 64bit


Hi, I am assuming you are using Windows 7 64-bit. Primavera 3 probably does not work in Windows 7.

Try running the installer in compatibility mode or if you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate you can use XP mode.

Compatibility Mode

Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

Other alternatives, downgrade to Windows XP or upgrade Primavera

I purchased Hebrew Tutor and cannot install it on my Windows7, 64-bit computer. Please help.


Unfortunately, the Hebrew Tutor from QuickVerse was written for older Windows OS versions. It supports: Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP Home, XP Pro, or NT 4.0. The changes in the Windows OS over time has made the installer totally different and the program isn't signed for a 64-bit OS. http://www.quickverse.com/shopfiles/product_details.asp?ID=41011 has the support details.

There are two possible ways to work around the issue. The first is to try to install the program (and then run it) in the compatibility mode. This may work but often doesn't. Right click on the installer (from the CD's directory) and choose Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and chose Run this program as compatible with XP. Save and close the properties box. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. If it installs, repeat the compatibility process on the program itself.

The solution most likely to work is to use a computer with the compatible OS versions. This could be a physical second computer, a dual-boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run the virtual computer with XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. For other setups, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Virtualization packages include Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare. Then install the Hebrew tutor as you normally would to an XP computer. (Note: virtual computers do not share hardware with the real computer. You can only install a printer to one machine at a time. You can share files by saving them to external media (optical RW disc or flash drive for example).)

I hope this helps.

What is the procedure to install a 32-bit softwares in to my laptop(windows 7,home premium,64-bit) ?


Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Windows 7 64bit does run programs that will run on windows 7 32bit, see here

How Windows 7 / Vista 64 Support 32 bit Applications

BUT not ALL 32bit programs will run on Windows 7!!! There are many programs that will run on Windows XP and before that will not run on Windows 7. IF you had Windows 7 Pro version (or upgrade) there is a program you can download from Microsoft that will simulate an XP environment to allow programs to run called "XP MODE".
Try to install the 32bit software first. If installation not succeed, it would be better if you first look into a newer version of the program you want to run.You have to consider that a newer version of your program might not be that much more expensive than upgrading to pro, and with the newer version, usually comes newer features.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

Says adobe flash player wont run on a 64 bit system, since having new laptop with windows 7, keeps saying adobe flash player cannot operate on a 64 bit system, so wont load zynga poker


Flash does work on Windows 7 64 bit, it just runs in 32 bit mode. Try using a 32bit version of the browser you use and installing flash there. Also make sure you are installing the latest version of the authentic adobe flash from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

I am not able to run turbo c++ on my windows 7.it gives the error that "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are running.check your computers system information to see...


Depending on your version of Win7 and your computer specs, you could try to run the software in the XP mode (Pro or Ultimate). This is a virtual machine and needs dedicated memory and does not directly share files or peripherals with the real machine. It has worked well on our machines for several older programs (Win2K and XP versions) - these were 32 bit programs and ran on a 64 bit Win7 Pro machine.

Running the program in the compatibility mode might work as well (right click, choose properties and then the compatibility tab).

I hope this helps.

32 bit program to 64 bit opperating system


From the Autocad webiste:
System Requirements AutoCAD® Civil and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009 Recommended System Requirements Recommended configuration (excluding server components used with project management capabilities):
  • Intel® Pentium® 4 (3 GHz or higher); AMD Athlon™; multiple processors supported, dual-core supported
  • 32-bit only: Microsoft® Windows Vista® Ultimate/Business/Enterprise, Microsoft® Windows XP (SP2)
Note: Windows XP 64 and Windows Vista 64 are supported in 32-bit compatibility mode only.

Here's how you should be able to run it in compatibility mode:
1. Right click on the Autocad Icon in your start menu
2. click on Properties
3. click on the Compatibility tab at the top
4. check the box next to Compatibility Mode and select Vista 32 bit if it is given as an option.

I don't have Vista here, but that is how it works in XP and I did do a search and it appears to be the same in Vista.
