Well, okay - your Stand By button still may not work though after you
reinstall and apply whatever you applied to break it in the first
place! If it does, your Hibernate option may not work either. That
is broken too, right?

Believe me, this is not a hard problem to fix if you would take the 30
seconds or so to follow the directions and post the information. It
is usually the same thing with Hibernate - when you press Shift, Stand
By will turn into Hibernate (on most systems). When it quits working
or never has worked, almost always "something changed" and the problem/
solution is frequently found in a video driver change made
accidentally, unknowingly or sometimes on purpose.

SIW has some value apparently, but you do not need it to determine the
cause of this issue. It is pretty though. Telling someone to run SIW
and expecting them to be able to locate, interpret and report the
information from SIW is too complicated for this issue and requires
additional mesaging. It almost always results in many more
frustrating messages and delays resolution.

You can get the instructions to run SIW, but the instructions for what
to do after you download and run it always seem to come later... more
questions. Not so with my method. Oh yeah... and in addition to the
video information, we need to know your system brand, and model. As
you can see from my example, all that is in msinfo32 and you can even
tell on a home grown system.

I will never ask what is your OS, what is your Service Pack, what is
your BIOS, it it a laptop or a desktop, what is your motherboard, what
is your CPU, 32bit or 64 bit, how much RAM do you have, what are your
Virtual Memory settings, what kind of video card, what video driver
(or sound if that is your problem), is it built in or an I/O card. I
will ask one question and get it all (usually). There is nothing to
type in for a reply (just copy/paste), there are no typos,
transcription problems and nothing for leave out or forget. Zero
additional questions about something I forgot to ask. If my questions
are wrong, I will make new questions.

It is important to ask the right questions and I know the right
questions to ask and try to solve the issue in just one interaction
after getting the information. I did not just make up my questions on
the fly or forget to ask things - I know what to ask to get puh-lenty
of information with as few questions as possible.

I want to solve these routine problems with as little interaction and
guesswork as possible. I have solved this problem countless times and
with lots of practice, these problems become routine and no longer
intellectually stimulating.
From: Drora on are one of a kind...thank you

Here is the data on "VIDEO" from the SIW program.

But before I go away, what you mean I will still need the video drivers ?
Will they not show up after complete format ?

BTW: I know very little on this and it will be done by professionals in a
So if you are right about the video drivers I'll be back to this page to get
the necessary drivers you recommend but I hope to God the Clean install
will get me out of this mess.

My dear Glen.
I'll be back in two days after the big "surgery" on this computer.....and if
this too won't work I'll throw it away and buy a new one even though it is
only 18 months old
