The computer came with XP. If it is a branded model, it should come with a disk or disks (or you have to create one)containing XP, utilities and drivers. The hibernation utility is in there......Perhaps if you visit the website of the manufacturer and to Support, you may be able to download them.
Here's a newbie-ish question, please bear with me...
I bought a computer with Windows XP pre-installed, but upgraded to a larger hard drive and had to install Windows XP in the new drive.
Now, I can no longer use the "hibernate" mode that I had with the pre-installed drive.
I went into Control Panel> Power Options and no longer have the ability to set up the hibernate mode.
Windows XP help says I "must have a computer that is set up by the manufacturer to support this option". But, since I only put in a new HD and everything else is still from the manufacturer, there must be some way to install the hibernate mode. How can I do this?
