I recently reformatted my Dell Laptop. I am pretty sure I reloaded all the updated drivers from the support webpage, but when I try to put my computer into standby or shut the lid, when I open it, it will not reload windows. I have to turn the power off and turn it back on. I checked the power settings, all seems good; no exclamation marks in device manager either. I looked in the BIOS and restored it to factory defaults, so that shouldn't be a problem either (I don't think)
Additionally, other small quirks since I have reformatted it is that the computer will not play DVDs (I think I tried installing either PowerDVD and WinDVD) or show a Hibernate option in the shutdown menu. How can I restore these functionalities?
