windows xp wont resume from standby

by sonymaster101 / July 27, 2008 3:09 AM PDT

i have recently had quite a lot of trouble trying to get my computer to resume from standby. this happened after i decided to bridge the network connections of the twisted pair ethernet running to the pc next to me (which also now has the same problem) and my usb wifi internet connection. the bridge worked, but i could no longer resume from standby. the pc either turns on to a black screen or comes to a screen but is frozen. i have to reset both to turn them off. any help would be appreciated.

-apevia 600 watt psu
-2 gb ocz platinum ddr2

-pentium 4 2.8 GHz
-evga 6200 256 mb

Out of date BIOS and drivers for the motherboard and the devices that are involved with the networking.

Tell me about your methods to deal with drivers.

Is not possible so all I can do is share how I've fixed it everytime.

If you want the forum to check your work share the make, model of the board, bios version, etc so members can check your work.

Also, an old firewall would hang on resume. You can test for the by uninstalling that.

Your posts are not complete. Share the BIOS version, motherboard chipset version, etc that is currently installed.

As to the change about the network, while interesting the fixes I have used don't seem to care what the owner changed. Why do you think the network change matters?

I wonder why XP decided to tank over that. The only time that happened to me I was able to recover with something called "XP REPAIR INSTALL." See google about that.

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?
