Hi,
Have Toshiba laptop M60-124, 2Gb RAM, 80Gb HD, 80 Gb USB HD, Canon Pixma ip4300 printer. Windows XP Home + SP2 (up to date).
I recently upgraded from 1Gb RAM to 2Gb. From that time I no longer had access to the Hibernate/Standby facility, which I use(d) a lot.
All drivers up to date.
Would be grateful for help.
Pete

I saw a thread on this last week and the solution that seemed to work for everyone was to reinstall your video driver. Doesn't sound like one has to do with the other but that is what worked.

Thanks Devil-Himself,
I tried all you suggested but no-go!
I've attempted to get an updated Video driver but my laptop model (M60-164) isn't listed on the Toshiba site now.
I can see how this could be the problem after upgrading RAM.
How do I get an update for this driver???
Thanks

Thanks to all who helped. When I upgraded the RAM, for some reason the Video controller disappeared!
So I didn't know its name... Fortunately I found an archive of Toshiba drivers and was able to re-install the
Video driver! It did the trick!
So thanks again.
