Before my Laptop crashed, I was able to put the computer into hibneration mode.

Now, after I installed a new Operating System, this option is gone. How can that be?

Hi sannie,

Have you installed the video drivers for your laptop yet? If you haven't, then go to the manufacturer of your laptop's website and download the video card drivers for your laptop and install them. Once the video drivers are installed and you reboot your computer, you should now be able to go into hibernation, etc...

The hibernation tab in the Control Panel is there now, but it still doesn't show up as an option when I go to " Turn off computer"... ?!

Go to into the CONTROL PANEL and double-click on POWER OPTIONS. In the Power Options Window, click on the HIBERNATE and check the box corresponding to Enable Hibernation. Click APPLY and OK and now check and see if Hibernate is in the Shut Down Options.

Download the Power Management software for your laptop from the manufacturer's website.
