Try installing updated APCI (advanced power and cooling interface) drivers, which come from the maker of the motherboard and are generally on that maker's site, indexed by board part number.
You also have to have APCI enabled in the BIOS, or sometimes with jumpers. Some motherboards were made broken as far as hibernation features and won't be curable, but many are curable, as long as the OS (e.g. WinXP, Ubuntu Linux, MacOS X) is also willing.

You might pose your next question in non-generic territory, so people with the same motherboard can learn of the cure, rather than having to slog through this catch-all category!

Hi, my router won't le tme connect to the internet. I have unplugged it, waited a few minutes and then plugged it back in. Re-booted it, and still no connections. Any suggestions?


Hi,

you probably need to unplug power on your router too.

Unplug both power plugs and wait 20 seconds. Then plug back power to your MODEM FIRST.

Wait 1 minute to make sure the connection get an ip address.

After that, put the power back to your router.

Wait 20 seconds and try the connection with your computer.

If it doesn't work, restart your computer.

Hope this helps!

When I take the computer out of the standby mode


Try this:
  1. Update the BIOS and Video driver to the most current on http://support.dell.com
  2. Disable the screen saver
  3. Enable HIBERNATE instead of standby in Power settings, set the LCD to go off in 10 minutes, HDD to 15 and Hibernate in 20.
Select Shutdown, Hibernate
then try and restart

If no GO, disconnect all peripheral items except KB

Try hibernate again and restart.

If all works OK, add items back one at a time till you find item causing issue. If no go, replace power supply if issue still occurs, replace MB

Systems refuses to boot while the power is still on. It appears it is in a sleeping mode


If the power is on, what is it you are trying to do?
If you are running Vista, there sometimes is a problem waking up from hibernation.
To restart the computer, you need to unplug it and remove the battery.
After waiting maybe a minute or so, replace the battery and plug it back in and see if it starts.

Pressed hibernation key and now the computer won't work


Unplug the computer for a minute and plug it back in. It should restart normally.

Usually you restart just by tapping a key in sleep or hitting the power in hibernate.
