Q: When I hibernate or sleep my laptop, it turns on automatically! helpme

Hi,
my computer turns on automatically after a while
I have no scheduled tasks,
my network card has this option in its properties -> "wake-up capabilities", I set it to "none" , no luck
I even disabled network card; removed the network cable and still no luck
I have done and checked everything I could think of, tried to read the event viewer to see what causes the computer to wake up and found nothing (or I couldn't figure out the cause)
EVEN I turned off all the clocks in home, but still my laptop wakes-up after 10-20 min. I think it's gotten insomnia!!

any suggestions? help? (apart from putting sleep pills into the CD-ROM!!)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Has this just happened after working OK ?

If yes, you may want to check if you have picked up any nasties i.e malware, virus.

If no, check your settings in BIOS.

I use Steam Big Picture Mode to control my PC's frequently. It has an option to put the computer to sleep but not to hibernate. I don't ever use regular sleep mode because my computers always end up waking themselves up and it drains my laptops battery. I've heard that it is possible to set a Windows 7 computer to automatically hibernate after being asleep for a certain amount of time, but I can't figure out how to do this. I tried setting "hibernate after" in my advanced power settings, but this just hibernated the computer after x minutes of inactivity instead of x minutes of sleep, which I do not want. Is there a way to get the computer to automatically hibernate after sleeping for a certain amount of time, or even better some way to eliminate sleep mode altogether and just use hibernate instead?

A:How to automatically hibernate after sleep?

a bat file perhaps ? :

or

create a task with the task scheduler utility?

Hello ,

Normally i work during the day and when i finish, i just close the lid of the laptop and continue next day.

But recently even though i didnt shut off the computer, and just close the lid, it shuts itself like there is no more battery. All work is in recovery files because of the sudden shut off during the night. however the battery is still full in the morning.

Do you know what is it and how I can fix it?

thank you

A:My laptop turns off when it is in hibernate mode

Hibernate mode is a power off mode.
Hibernate mode differs from Sleep mode. Sleep mode maintains some power going to the memory to maintain that memory. Hibernate mode saves the complete memory state out to hard drive and once it is all safely stored the power is shut off.

Because Sleep mode does require some power, the disadvantage of it is that if you are running on battery, you will at some time run down the battery and will lose all that you were maintaining in that memory (hope you saved any open files out to disk!).

Because Hibernate mode uses no power, once it has hibernated, there is no time limit. You can put that computer in the closet and pull it out months or years later, turn on the computer will resume right back to where it was prior to putting it into Hibernate.

Either Hibernate or Sleep mode will get your computer state back exactly like it was prior to entering that state.
The only real downside of using Hibernate, over Sleep, is the few additional seconds needed to get into, or out of, Hibernate mode; over the time when using the Sleep mode.

Win7 and Vista, by default, use a modified Sleep mode called Hybrid Sleep. That is where the Sleep mode additionally also stores off the complete memory off to the hard drive (just like it would if you had selected Hibernate) just incase you do accidentally lose power while in Sleep mode. That might happen if you put your computer to Sleep "temporarily" while you go outside to do some chore, and somehow you were gone for the entire day - and your battery got depleted. With Hybrid Sleep you will still have your computer come back once power gets restored. Whew!

Assuming the Sleep power never got lost, using this Hybrid Sleep still will use the faster startup of the maintained memory to get your computer back up. It will only use the slower way of getting memory reloaded from the hard drive (that hibernate file) if it really has to.

So, just in case you still are wondering, your computer is supposed to power off in Hibernate mode. You don't have a problem.

Since upgrading my Brand New Dell Laptop to Windows 7 my laptop crashed because of itunes. After uninstalling itunes the computer stopped going into sleep, hibernate and even shutting down. When I try sleep or hibernate the screen goes blank but the power button on my Dell Inspiron remains fully lit. On sleep it pulsates and on hibernate it is extinguished. When I try to resume the system does nothing except chirp when i hit the spacebar, shift, or enter keys. When I try to shutdown my computer the screen simply says logging off indefinitely, I have even tried letting it "shut down" over night and nothing happened. I am getting really frustrated with microsoft because I know that Windows 7 is to blame for the problems that are occurring with my NEW computer that had no problems at all until the upgrade that was authorized by Dell after I met all system requirements.

Can anybody help me?????

A:Laptop will not Hibernate, Sleep,

I would start over and get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 now that you're here at the site which specializes in that.

An Upgrade install is an inferior install, as is any factory preinstalled OS. It's the difference between having the worst possible install of Win7 you can have, or the best one. Your choice.

A:How I can stop my laptop turns off automatically

It sounds as if you are actually not making the correct changes.   See the settings in the images below the text. Invoke the control panel to power options. Change what the notebook does when the lid closes. Your notebook may not be shutting down. It may be going into sleep or hibernate mode, depending what the current setting is. You also need to change the display turn off settings and check the percentage of no activity at which time the notebook will turn off, sleep  or hibernate.

Every time I close my laptop lid (or manually try to enter Sleep or Hibernate mode) my laptop won't re-awaken. When I cycle the power, it tells me that it recovered from an error, details mention a BSOD, so here I am. It's been working fine for months, problem started about two weeks ago, but I can't think of any reason why that would be the case.

I had a problem with my laptop trying to recover from hibernate mode ("Your computer can't come out of hibernation. Status 0xc000009a") and on researching the issue I decided the hiberfil.sys file was probably corrupted.

So I used command prompt and typed "powercfg -h off" then did a disk cleanup (using CCleaner) then defragged the drive. Rebooted. Then re-enabled hibernate by typing "powercfg -h on".

Made sure all my power management settings were correct, and I had it set to hibernate when I close the lid of my laptop- but it goes into sleep mode.

Any ideas?

A:Laptop goes into Sleep mode, not Hibernate

I suggest opening a command prompt and running powercfg -availablesleepstates.

Make sure hibernate is not one of the unavailable options.

You can also try toggling the settings. Switch the lid close action to sleep, and then turn it back to hibernate.

I recently replaced Linux on my laptop with Windows 7 and since then I have had a problem that when I put my machine to S3 sleep for a long period, i.e. overnight, I wake up and find that the machine is in hibernate. This is unacceptable to me because I make a habit of writing as soon as I wake up, and the ten minute delay while the machine is coming out of hibernate means that I lose my thoughts. how do I get the machine to stay in S3 sleep?

The machine is a Thinkpad R61i and the third-party battery is showing signs of age, but I always leave the machine plugged into the mains overnight. And as I said, I never had this problem when I was using Linux.

Also, the "Sleep" button on keyboard has no effect whatsoever.

Small detail: I checked control panel -> keyboard, as suggested by one site and notice that my keyboard has no support for a wake fup unction.

Try changing your sleep settings.

Go to "Control Panel"

Go to "Hardware & Sound"

You will see such options as "Choose What The Power Buttons Do" & "Choose What Closing The Lid Does." Poke around in here and you should find how to change the sleep settings.

I played around in here the other day. I bet this will help you.

For the past few days Windows refuses to shutdown. Everytime I select the sleep, hibernate or shutdown options it will reboot/reawaken straight away. I have tested the RAM which had no problems, I reinstalled Windows completely which didn't help & I checked power settings in BIOS to disable auto-restart. Laptop works fine when on, just refuses to power down - only holding the power button will get it to stop doing anything! Very annoying, can anyone help? Cheers.

A:Laptop will not sleep, hibernate or shutdown

Hello cakefish,
I hope this isn't a virus or some malware. I would force a hard shut down and then after waiting 20-30 seconds then boot into safe mode with networking. Update and run your Anti-virus and Malwarebytes several times and with luck it will pick something up and clean it out of your system.

I just finished dealing with my second hard drive crash in 6 months. One of the things I have been told has been to pay attention to what setting my laptop (Dell Latitude d630, Windows 7 Pro N) is on when I'm moving my laptop between classes, from home to work, etc. I close my laptop without shutting down to open it at a different location many times throughout the day, and I was told that perhaps one of the reasons for my laptop crashing this latest time was because my laptop's hard drive was still on during sleep mode, allowing for damage to the moving parts while it was being transported.

Right now, my power settings are set to whatever the default is. I've seen some of the other how-to's around here, but I can't seem to find what the recommended settings when I want to close the laptop and move it somewhere. Any thoughts?

A:When moving the laptop should I use sleep or hibernate (or neither)

You can set your power plan not to use sleep, and to shut down completely when you go from class to class.. While this may be inconvenient, you will eliminate the possibility of damage to the hard drive while carrying it ...

As far as I know, laptops in sleep near battery death wake themselves up to go into hibernation. Problem is my laptop is waking up in the middle of the night from a near full battery to go into hibernation randomly (and blasting the music that was playing for the few seconds it takes before it hibernates). I'm also concerned of this happening while the laptop is in my backpack being shuffled about in sleep and just randomly waking up to hibernate. I don't want it to wake up automatically at all!

I don't have any devices waking it, such as mice or keyboards which wouldn't be the same anyway since that'd just wake up the laptop, not put it into hibernate afterwards.

Hi,

I have been using a Win'7 HP (64-bit) based Acer notebook for sometime. Recently, I noticed that the battery was draining faster than earlier. After I read some posts on the web, I changed the power options to 'hibernate' intead of 'sleep' when the lid is closed, as it seems hibernate consumes less battery than 'sleep' mode. However, I noticed that when the system comes back to life from hibernate, it seems to consume more power, than when the system resumes from 'sleep' mode.
Can someone advise me on whether I should retain the 'hibernate' or revert to 'sleep' mode to have better battery life / backup ?

Thanks,

Ramesh

Hibernate takes a snapshot of everything you got on RAM (including any windows and apps running) and saves it to a special hard disk file and then shuts the computer down, when you resume from hibernation the computer boots a bit faster than a normal power up bootup. This method does not consume any power while the computer is off.

Use Sleep Mode when you are just leaving the computer for a few minutes or hours, like at lunchtime or something like that.

Sleep, basically shuts your computer down except some components like RAM, so the next time you resume, it will boot almost in an instant. However, this method consumes battery power.

Your battery may be starting to have a broblem also.

I just recently bought an HP Pavilion dv7 envy laptop with the following specs :

Intel Core i7 720QM
6GB DDR3 RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
2X 500GB Hard Drive
Windows 7 HP 64

I really love it and it's fast however I've been having issues with the sleep mode and I suspect it's a driver issue. When I put my laptop into sleep the screen turns blank and the lights stay on but the system doesn't shut off. I can wait for minutes and it will just hang. No matter what I press it won't come out of it unless I hard reboot.
I'll post a video of what I'm experiencing, any ideas on what generally causes sleep issues ?

I tried hibernate earlier today and it gave me the same results unable to enter hibernate.
It's weird.
And when I restart the computer and enter the desktop no error messages appear.
Where would I find the minidump file ?
Thanks

I posted here a few months ago and everyone was very helpful so I thought I would try it again with a new computer and a new problem I have a Lenovo ThinkPad w running Windows -bit and every time I wake the computer from sleep the computer boots up to the desktop but after a few seconds goes back to sleep The same phenomenon occurs for hibernate with the laptop going back to hibernate This happens exactly once meaning if I try a Laptop booting sleep/hibernate not from correctly second time to resume from hibernate or sleep the computer boots normally This occurs regardless of whether the laptop is plugged in Laptop not booting correctly from sleep/hibernate or on battery power Shut down and restart are normal The only other thing I have noticed about this problem is that when I wake up the computer from sleep before it goes back to sleep the quot Safe to Remove quot bubble appears on the desktop telling me I can safely eject my CD DVD drive I have tried disabling re-enabling hibernate from the command prompt but it did not fix the problem

A:Laptop not booting correctly from sleep/hibernate

Hi -

How old is the Lenovo Thinkpad W500?

Reset power options -
START type power | select "power options" | reset to default settings

The Lenovo support page for your w500 contains many new drivers - please make sure all are updated -

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...IGR-70443.html

"Safely Remove" for an internal DVD drive obviously should not occur - and is a first for me.

Hi,

I have HCL ICON 1015 laptop, I have brand new HDD installed and just installed Windows 7.

My problem is when I shutdown my laptop every thing looks fine i.e. logging off, shutting down. But after couple of minutes the rotating wheel in front of "SHUTTING DOWN" stops rotating, power LED stays on and fan also stays on. HDD stops blinking.

My laptop is 3 years old and power LED is no longer as bright as it used be.

Thanks for you time and consideration.

BSOD seems to be caused when leaving the computer for a while - so perhaps when it tries to sleep or hibernate. The laptop is a relatively new one, less than a year old.

Any ideas what is causing this?

My "Windows 8.1 with Bing" laptop has been misbehaving. Whether I put the lid down to get it to Sleep, or Win + X -> Shut Down or sign out -> Hibernate, it turns on in the middle of the night, runs its battery down and I've lost
all my work :-( Is there any way of stopping this?
I have Norton Internet Security and it is a TOSHIBA SATELLITE C50-B x64 with UEFI, just in case it's the software / firmware / hardware on / of my machine.

Hello,

My laptop is an MSI Gx660, running windows 7 64bit with 12gb ram.
The laptop is only 1-2months old and My harddisk has very little files with about 205gb free on the C drive.

After using for a long period of time like 6-7hours, I would usually put my laptop into hibernate mode.
When I click hibernate, the screen turns black but even after 20mins the power button including wifi and other lights doesnt go off, which I have to force shutdown by holding the power button. Even sleeping the laptop after 6-7hours does the same issue, unable to go to sleep(indicated by the blinking power button)

The wierd thing is that if I use the laptop for about 2 hours or less, I am able to fully hibernate or sleep, which I tested a few times.
Can anyone help me?

A:Laptop doesnt turn off when going into sleep/hibernate

Check the power options in the control panel (start, power options) are set correctly to what you want the buttons to do - if these are correct, you should get advice from MSI support given how new the laptop is, and why it seems to do it correctly after not much use but doesn't after prolonged use ??.

I have had my Asus laptop for about 3 months now and I have been continually having issues with the sleep and hibernate functions of my laptop. My computer goes to sleep/hibernates fine but whenever I try to wake it up it looks like everything is going fine for about 10 seconds or so and then it freezes and turns to a blue screen and says something about dumping my physical memory (I assume it means ram?) and then it restarts itself. If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated.

Just as the thread title says. This used to be something that happened only once in a blue moon, but now pretty much EVERY TIME my laptop is sleeping/hibernating and i wake it up and log back in, the laptop goes berserk. I basically get one of two things:

1. Random programs open (from Skyrim to like 5 excel sheets to notepad to powerpoint, you get the picture).
2. My mouse will click whatever it is hovering over and/or my keyboard will type a letter/the enter key indefinitely.

I do use a USB mouse/keyboard, but one time for testing i unplugged my mouse and keyboard and the problem persisted even when they were unplugged. Also, i dont think i have a virus/malware becasue i ran Norton 360's scan as well as Symantecs power eraser tool and both say my system is clean.

Any help would be appreciated.

You can try the following though. Remove the main battery, unplug the adapter and hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Attach the power adapter but do not replace the main battery and then press the power button.

I am confused by why this has been happening. I've researched on that, the slightist touch can put the laptop to sleep. However, I wouldn't touch my laptop since when its on sleep mode, im often at school or going to sleep. Only to find it has been opened and shut down due to battery running out.   Would there be able solutions to this small issue of mine?. How can I stop this from happening again? is it a virus? spyware?.   Thanks for your time and consideration in helping with this issue.  Kevin.

This problem has been going on already for about a month as far as I can recall The laptop turns on but the display is totally empty and Windows does not start at all This happens frequently after hibernation sleep What I do usually is I just turn the laptop off and turn it on again and the OS starts successfully but now it takes more than twice and it may be dangerous already to do such The laptop is still under warranty and I have it checked already at the store where I bought it The tech person did a few tweaks in the power settings It did work but after a little less than hrs the problem came back I am working as an architectural intern and most of the programs I use are heavy D drafting and D modeling softwares e g Autocad Sketchup and Lumion as well as Adobe Photoshop I use Sketchup very often Just mentioning this as it may have some bearing to the problem Thank you very much

You can troubleshoot Sleep and Hibernate by setting them to 1 and 2 minutes in Power Options. Use Balanced Plan. Then work through these Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums.

If this is still the factory preinstalled WIn7 then that is a corrupt install which causes many of these problems, which is why most tech enthusiasts will not run it but choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware

If that doesn't help then work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

A:Why does my laptop automatically sleep after 2 minutes?

Under the Power & Sleep settings menu, click the "Additional Power Settings" link and try making similar adjustments.

Since last quite a few days I am noticing this problem, after not using the laptop for a while or when the lid is closed, the system goes in sleep mode as it should. However, it doesn't remain in sleep mode for long. After a while the system shuts down automatically. And then when I turn on the laptop by pressing the power button, the system restarts but shows the status "Locked", and on unlocking I find everything as it was left off.So is this a problem or some kind of defense-mechanism of the system?Any ideas about why this happens or how to solve it?My system is inspiron 15 3521 and runs on Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Hi all,

I have been facing this issue for the last 2-3 days that my system turns off automatically, then in order to switch it on i have to switch off the main power and then switch it on again.
Sometimes my system runs for 30 minutes and sometimes not even for 3 minutes.
I have checked the temprature from BIOS and its 44C and 43C which i think is not very high.
Could this be related to RAM as few days back i tried to increase the RAM by putting another 1 GB strip which didnt work and i took it off.

This suggests that there may be a problem with the PSU (power supply unit), either failing or inadequate. Replace the PSU with a bigger/better one.

You said: "have checked the temprature from BIOS and its 44C and 43C which i think is not very high."
It is high enough for a BIOS reading .... ideally a little cooler would be better, but I don't know what room temperature is there. The fact that you have to turn the power off and on again ... pretty much rules out it being an overheating problem.

There could be other possibilities ... check the mobo for swollen/leaking capacitors!

A:Sleep vs Hibernate?

I'm not a fan of either Hibernation or Sleep. My recommendations:

For the desktop, just set the display and hd to power down after a defined period of inactivity.

As for the laptop, t just power it down when you're not using it? Booting it before classes start can't be that much of a problem.

I have windows 7 installed on laptop which has good performance.

I want to put him to sleep or hibernate so he can cool himself a bit , but without closing my network applications such as one game and one sharing program.

I tried any way but I'm connected to network with usb wireless adapter to my modem , or I can connect with usb cable to him.

Any way I try my connection goes off.
If there is any possible way of saving some power or cooling him off a little while using some network applications I would be happy to know about it.

Thanks.

I have herd arguements both ways, one issue I herd was that in "sleep" mode the system keeps running and in a enclosed bag (laptop bag or backpack) can overheat fast, also I have herd hibetrnate is borked up.

Well, I have hibernated and also used sleep, but whats the reccomended way.

If its hibernate, how can I just remove the sleep option from the shutdown options, and if its sleep how can I remove the hibernate options ?

Thankyas

A:Sleep or Hibernate ?

Just Like Coke vs Pepsi, it really boils down your own personal preference. Both drawbacks you list can be true. The main difference though is that sleep does not totally power down your system. Which is why a laptop in a bag will get hot. It still draws power to the memory, which is why it restarts so quickly. However if the power is interrupted for any reason, battery dead, unplugged, brown/blackout, you lose what was running at the time. Hibernate saves everything to the hard disk and totally powers down the entire system. Power can og out or battery removed and it will still return to the last state it was in when it hibernated albeit in a slightly longer amount of time than the Sleep function. Catch is the file what it uses to store the hibernation data, (hiberfil.sys) is very large (typically equal to the amount of RAM you have installed) and can become corrupted which can cause various problems.

Either way the easiest way to shutdown in whatever manner you decide is to assign the Start menu Power button to do either option under Control Panel/Power Options/Advanced options. Also if your keyboard has a sleep button (It typically looks like a crescent moon) then that sometimes can be programed to do the same thing as well.

I have a dell XPS1702x laptop Win7 64, this problem came up in the last 5 days after I installed a logitech M705 mouse and software.When ever I put my laptop in sleep or hibernate and start up again I get a blank screen, but the laptop seems tobe running I have to turn the computer off and then on again using the power button. My computer then restarts and opens in the Error Recovert Screen stating that the computer was turned off improperly and ask if I want to restart Windows. I have preformed a complete Virus scan with Nortons 360, I have updating all my software, uninstalled the mouse and returned to my old mouse and the software for the new mouse and the problem is still there. As I read the Questions on the MS community it looks like I'm not alone with this problem. does any one have a possible solution ?

A:Can't use sleep or hibernate

Hi hootcow,

There are many possible causes for this issue. Please try the following troubleshooting steps to see if they work:
1. Update BIOS:
Note: Battery should have 10% or greater charge; Adapter should be connected; No external devices should be connected; All other programs should be closed and documents saved
- Click Driver Details | Dell United States to download the BIOS file and install it as per the on-screen instructions
- Laptop will restart itself (may produce some beeps); recheck results

2. If the issue persists, try installing 'Windows Updates': Ensure that the 'Logitech Mouse' is working with the laptop while you perform the update
- Click 'Start icon' > Type 'Windows Update' in 'Search programs and files' in the text box > Tap Enter and follow the on-screen instructions to install all updates > Restart the laptop and check results

3. If the issue still persists, you may also try updating the 'video drivers'; Dell XPS L702x laptop offers 'NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M and GT 555M' as discrete video options:
- Click Driver Details | Dell United States to update the 'Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver'
- Restart laptop after updating
- Click Driver Details | Dell United States to update the 'Discrete Video card driver'
- Restart and check again

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.

You could try looking at the advanced power settings. Click on the battery icon on the task bar & select more power options, then select Change plan settings next to the currently active power plan.

Hello Alanbo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The timestamp may still show the same due to fast startup being enabled unless you actually restart the computer. Fast startup doesn't save the same way to the hiberfil.sys as hibernate does.

As a test, you might turn off fast startup to see how it works for you afterwards.

Dual Booting 7/8 on an eMachine T5234.

Won't timeout to sleep or hibernate, or hibernate even on command.

With old or new Nvidia driver delivered for Win8.

When I run last wake command after failure I get this:

A:Won't sleep or hibernate.

I had similar problems under Windows 7, so I'm guessing the base issue is similar. I found my solution, by following the instructions found at Windows 7 Power Management: Fixing PC Insomnia The specific information that helped me, is the section under 'Allow Standby with Remote Opens' about halfway down the page.

Hello,

My Acer laptop with windows 7 has been turning itself on automatically since a week.
I keep my laptop on my bedstand in sleepmode before I myself go to sleep.
For the past few nights my laptop has woken itself up out of sleepmode around the same time (5 AM) for no apparent reason.
Does anybody know how I can resolve this issue?
Thanks for any advice.

Firstly turn off your system. Open the back of your computer system then locate the memory(RAM) and hard disk drive. Than take them out and put them back
and restart your pc.

This may seem very wierd but my desktop appears to turn on automatically at sporadic times. I have been present when this computer simply turns on by itself. What could cause this to happen? Thanks for any help.
 

A:Computer turns on automatically

A number of things;

1 Wake on lan is enabled in the bios.
2 Wake on ring or modem is enabled in the bios [and you have a modem]
3 Some mb actually have an option to start the computer at a given time; check this in your manual.

Memory corruption probably caused by a driver. please run these two tests

1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier






Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Thanks.

Hello Since about two weeks ago I've been having a bizarre problem with my monitor when I start my computer I'll have a picture for about two seconds then the screen will go blank yet the light on the monitor's power button is still on I can turn off my monitor and turn it back on and I'll get a picture for another two seconds or so and then the screen will a automatically Monitor while for turns off go blank again I find that usually if I let my computer sit for minutes Monitor automatically turns off for a while or so and turn my monitor off and on the screen will flicker and I'll get an image that lasts Also when I start up I'll get about two or three error messages that say quot xzxhrb exe has encountered a problem and will need to quit Do you want to send an error report quot Part of me thinks these two problems are linked since they first appeared at the same time However I was out of town the week before last right after I first noticed the problem and when I came back my monitor was working just fine I've still been getting the quot xzxhrb exe quot error messages though The monitor only just now started acting up again Does anyone know what quot xzxhrb exe quot is Norton Antivirus and Spy Subtract show nothing unusual Hewlett Packard tech support has been no help at all And yes I've checked to make sure my monitor cable's tightly plugged in and no re-starting doesn't solve the problem Does anyone have any suggestions Appologies if this is in the wrong section but I didn't see a quot Monitors quot category

A:Monitor automatically turns off for a while

It sounds like your monitor maybe overheating try having a desktop fan blow some fresh air in it and see if it still does it. As for the xzxhrb.exe error I have no idea and nothing came up with google. Try doing a search for the file and tell us what folder that file is located in. If I knew what program that is assicated with I might be able to figure some thing out.
