HI... i'm new here..

I recently called my computer company, and they helped me wipe my hard drive clean...

The thing is, is that when I send my computer into standby mode, it does so....

But when I open the lid of my laptop, the computer initiates, but only has a black blank screen. I believe the computer term is "hanging".

Do you know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance

How impatient.

Anyway all versions of Windows have had problems with power saving to some degree, as it only takes one problematic piece of hardware/driver to screw everything up.

Add to that different systems interpret Standby and Hibernation as one and the same. Flick the power switch and see if comes back to life.

Sorry for being impatient... I didn't mean any harm..

ANd thanks for replying.
Just one question: do you know how to fix this problem?
Perhaps reinstalling a computer driver would work?

Was it working as it should before you wiped the drive?

If not, then, well, the fun comes with finding out which component is screwing up the power saving.

Not a lot more I can add unless you know for sure which component it's falling over on, and updating the driver for that component to see if it makes a difference.
