So all of a sudden I cant use standby on my R50 laptop anymore. The command rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,setsuspendstate gives the error:
===============
Error in powrprof.dll
Missing entry:setsuspendstate
===============

I have tried:
-repair of XP
-Kelly-korner power fix reg hack
-copied new dll from dll-files.com
-diag startup(msconfig)
-I have updated drivers from IBM

Now my usb keys are not working......not getting a drive letter. Some control panel things dont work. I was hoping to not need to nuke till the end of the semeseter......but its not looking good.......

I just cant seem to get this to work at all......any ideas?

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Check the video adapter drivers
