Error when PC left idle

  Mutant_Llama 22:04 23 Oct 2003

Windows XP
1024MB RAM
128MB Radeon 9700PRO

I have noticed that if I boot my PC and leave it on the WIndows login screen for a while the screen just goes blank and I cannot get anything to work. The monitor light is on but I have to press the power button and the PC immediatly reboots?

I then leave my PC on desktop and get the following error:

"Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

szAppName :
szAppVer : szModName : unknown
szModVer : offset : 00000000"

Any thoughts on this? It only seems to be a problem if the system is idle for a length of time?

I do not have any HP drivers installed on my PC at all and have formatted and reinstalled Windows once already, puting only very limited software back on...

Remove power managment in control panel

It's going into standby or power save mode it need's to be on "never turn off" for drive and monitor" just turn monitor off when not in use

I have no power off options on and still the PC seems to power off if left awaiting me to log in.

The monitor light stays green (as though on and working) but the HDD seems to stop (as though idle) and no amount of key pressing returns the login screen.

Amny more suggestions?

have you right clicked desktop and gone to properties and checked settings in there?

It's in the control panel under the little battery icon

  woodchip 10:50 28 Oct 2003

It should be showing never turn of

I do not have any power off options set nor do I have a screen saver. When I do get to desktop I can leave my PC on for hours without the monitor entering standbye mode or any screen savers cutting in.

I do not have a power off setting on the HDD either, but after about 5 minutes at the login screen the HDD just stops and the screen goes blank....

For troubleshooting Go to start/run type MSCONFIG click ok then go to startup tab and remove all ticks in box?s except system tray and try a reboot
