Hello! I have Windows XP emachine H5038. There are two problems. 1 About once a day the computer freezes for about 5 minutes and then goes back to normal. 2. There are no hiberate and standby options available on my computer. Can anybody help me with these problems?

2. There are no hiberate and standby options available on my computer.

Start -> Shut Down. There should be three options available, standby, shut down and restart. Press Shift and the standby option will be replaced by hibernate.

I know how to find options

In reply to: RE:

It's just that there is no option to choose Standby and Hibernate. How do configure my computer, so I can get these options? I heard something about having to download a chipset driver, but I couldn't find one. Also, I heard that I have to change the power usage BIOS settings, but that didn't help either.

Thank-you for your suggestions. I am sorry, but I guess I should have mentioned that my computer knowledge is about medium. What I am saying is that there are no hibernate and standby options IN the power options control panel. I am trying to figure out how to add these options to the computer, not how to navigate a computer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
