    I have windows XP on my laptop and it just refuses to enter in a standby mode, neither Hibernate mode.:confused:
    Usually it runs very normally but every time I try to put it on standby I get a blue error screen that says that my system have to shut down because of a serious error and that I have to check the bios.
    After that I just switch off the button and have to turn it off!

    I appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
    Thanks in advance

    Did you do something lately, like a memory upgrade?

    You probably need to install the latest display adapter drivers from the manufacturer of your computer. Alternatively if you know the make of your display adapter you can go and download the latest display adapter drivers from their website. Windows usually installs a very basic display adapter driver that is compatible with your display adapter but lacks the support for energy management.

    I already have the display adapter installed. I'll try to update it, is that what you mean?
    Do you think the problem comes from it?!
    Anyways, I'll give it a shot
