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!

My Machine Gateway E-4620, ask u how to disable VGA in setup

I'm guessing that is a yes.

1) Computer off, unplug from power. FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
Open the computer case, remove the graphics card. Plug the monitor back into the motherboard.

2) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on. Load the Installation disk for the graphics card. Load the drivers, and user interface. (Nvidia Control Center)
Already installed? Go to Add/Remove programs, and remove it.
Restart the computer. Now when Windows loads put it back on.

3) If asked do you wish to restart - No
Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen, and turn the computer off.

4) Computer unplugged from power; Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do the same procedure 2 more times.

Removes CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory settings.

Reinstall the graphics card. Connect the monitor to the card. Close the case. Plug back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.

Push and hold the power button for a few seconds(count to 10) to restart it. Once it restarts go into power settings and disable Sleep mode, Hibernation.

My hp a6700f desktop has a problem with booting up or coming out of hibernation. It seems everytime it restarts it goes to sleep and I can not revive it. The fans come on and the DVD drive starts up but no...

You can turn off the hibernation in the power option control panel, but that may not be your problem, the power supply may be going bad, but I would turn off the hibernation first and see if that resolves your problem, if not get another power supply. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a nice day.

I am trying to hook up awireless router arg54abroudband router.i need someone to explain it to me if i have my conputer pluged in to my internet service how can i plug the router in also.

You need to unplug your computer from there and plug your router in the same place instead. The WAN port or uplink port should be connect there. Then you can plug your computer in any of the LAN port on your router. Usually you don't need too much setup, just restart the modem from your Internet service provider, wait for half minute and restart your router, then wait for half minutes and restart your computer. The manual of your router or the support section of the manufacturer of the router should have some instructions about how to set up the router. If you need more details, send me an email and I will let you know.

System restarts while in use

Please try to check the POWER OPTIONS/MANAGEMENT in control panel, maybe it is set to RESTART, if it is---try changing it to NEVER. Also check if the HIBERNATE button is checked (still in Power Options), unchecked it.

When I take the computer out of the standby mode

Try this:
  1. Update the BIOS and Video driver to the most current on
  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

Cooling fan runs constantly coming off stand-by

Has it always done this or is this a recent problem?
Try this: right click on your desk top's start screen, select properties, select screen saver, select poweer, select hibernate. Make sure that hibernate is checked and select apply. Now when you hibernate your computer will remember all the info you were working on AND it should make the fan run normally on start up.
Not all computers have the hibernate feature and it cannot be added, so let's hope yours was built with it at the factory. Good luck!

The Computer has trouble restarting Windows XP. I have to shut it down and unplug it for at least 2 minutes in order for it to start normally past the black screen. Otherwise, it will keep restarting...

I'm guessing from what you are saying, that it will in fact boot to safe mode. the culprit is most likely a resently added program. my other favourite is thermal shut down. remove the cover (after it is shut down and power is removed) and see if it's filled with dust and dirt. when the case is off start the computer up. are all the fans working as well ?
