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.

Installing adobe acrobat pro 6 to windows 7


This is an old version of Acrobat that was written for NT, Win2K and XP. Due to changes in the OS, it's hard to get the program to install in Windows 7.

Which version of Win7 do you have? (32-bit or 64-bit and Home Premium, Pro or one of the other variants) Since you indicated this under the Dell Dimension E521 with 1 GB of memory, I'll guess Win7 Pro 64-bit. (This uses the 64 bit CPU) You can check by clicking Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the Windows version ends with x64, it is the 64-bit version. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

Under the 64-bit OS, you need one of the following workarounds: a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer running an older version of Windows. If your hardware supports virtualization, this might be a good bet if you can add memory to computer. With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft and run XP for free. Then install Acrobat in XP mode as if it were your only machine. (Note: the Virtual PC requires a share of your total memory and doesn't give it back to the main computer while it is running.)

The other methods listed require a licensed version of an older Windows OS.

If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can try the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the compatibility tab, check always run in the compatibility mode and select an older version of Windows. Then click Apply to save the changes and then click OK. Then right click again and choose Run As Administrator. You may have to repeat the compatibility mode changes for the program itself.

You may want to consider upgrading to a Windows 7 compatible version of Acrobat. The current version is Version X.

I hope this helps.

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

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.

I have just got a new computer. A Gateway PC running Windows 7/ 64 bit. After installation of ONE I get a dialog box stating " cannot execute machnm1.exe - What can I do to complete the installation?...


Hi,
I'm not familiar with ONE, and am assuming it's a software program.
Try running 7 in XP Mode for proper emulation of the program in question in a 64 bit environment when BIOS requests Machnm32.sys which is probably the culprit (Machnm64.sys in 64 bit environments). Both should be present. This should allow you to continue as many older softwares will not function properly in the 7 environment but, 7 has many built in features to allow for this. Your program may not have the proper drivers to operate in a 64 bit system/chipset.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

Canon Canoscan D1259U2F dont have any driver for Windows 7 64-bit


the only successful method I found for using CanoScan D1250U2F in 64 bit Windows 7 (I guess the same would be for 64 bit Vista) is to use Windows XP Mode in Virtual PC (attach the scanner as USB device and that's it - works perfectly)

I had a problem with Windows 7 detecting the device as CanoScan (needed for Windows XP Mode to detect is as USB device and allow attach) - the solution was to unplug the scanner, plug it in and CANCEL Windows 7 hardware detection process before it finishes - this leaves it as "CanoScan" device (auto-detect will leave it as "Unrecognized device" and with that unusable/un-attachable in Windows XP Mode)

latest versions of Windows XP Mode will make your hard drives accessible as network locations (no need for external media)

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.
