computer came with windows xp, I added svc pak 2 and other updates. The odd thing is sony says pop in recovery cd and install wizard will appear. I get no install wizard, that is what I originally expected, and thought reinstall of quicken would be easy.
solved part of problem for sure, device driver for quicken, mrtRATE, was in conflict. Disabled it and standby mode working fine. Did search at microsoft.com used gist of error message and led to article how to fix. %$5&%@ computer!!
Finding that one can solve many problems by searching proper sites with proper search, hard to keep your head rite when aggravated. Thx to all.
