Hello,

When booting up a computer win xp pro- following message:

Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu or continue with system restart.


Problem- cannot use the keyboard to select these options. After searching this error- it is related to the pc being in hibernate mode. I cannot get it out of hibernate to boot.

But I can get into the setup and make selections- I was hoping i could turn hibernation off in setup.

Overall problem the microsoft knowledge base doesnt provide answers if the keyboard doesnt work when presented with following error message at boot[ see above.

Have you shut off the computer by holding in the power button till it shuts off and then rebooting?

Yeah, no need to be offended, when you have worked with people and computers for a while you learn to ask the simple questions first.
