Start Up & Standby Issues with Xp Pro

  mulva42 19:40 28 May 2004

Windows xp goes into standby for no particular reason not all the time only occasionally, And also when pc boots up it hangs at the Temp screen where it tells you the temp for the cpu, Then I press any key on the keyboard and it seems to continue booting.

STALION What's Bump Mean?

mulva42 - here 'bump' is used like a nudge. When no one has answered your query for a while someone on the Forum - stalion in this case - who cannot give you an answer will instead bump up the post to the top of the Forum list (see 'Latest threads' in the left margin). This is done in order to catch someone else's attention & hopefully they will have a closer look & answer your query. Nice isn't it? : ) G

crossbow thanks for the explanation great.But look at the other Major issue i have now Boot up screen not completing cause i played about with the core kernel to get rid of a fancy boot scrn i loaded about 5 months ago, I tried to remove it because it wouldn't let me load a service pack, And oh boy have i done it big time

So, I suppose you tried the suggestions & links I gave earlier & they didn't work?

Have you run a sfc /scannow? This is done to check for & replace any corrupted files. click here if you need to know how.

If the sfc /scannow doesn't work you may want to consider reinstalling WinXP over the top of itself (also called a repair) - click here if you need to know how (don't forget the backup!). After doing this you'll need to reapply updates & service packs (incl. SP1 if required).

Keep us posted. Good luck, G
