Rather than letting PC run and/or turning it off completely (while I read the paper or eat lunch) I have always put it in "Stand By" (Start, Turn Off Computer, Stand By) Lately this option no longer works. Could someone help me solve this problem?

No, the Monitor Screen is pitch black.

I should mention that the PC is On because the little green light on the Tower is On.

I am not computer savvy and do not know what a video/display card is so am unable to check to see if it is working.

That site is way to confusing for me. I have no idea where to start. I am not computer savvy and don't understand computer language so am afraid I will do the wrong thing and really screw up my PC. Thank you for your help but from now on I am just going to shut down my PC and forget about using "Stand By."

You select Windows XP Professional 32bit then you select Drivers scroll down to the very bottom and download the most recent. YOu do not have to be a Computer Technician to understand how to download drivers and install them. If you can post on these forums then you can download the drivers which is very critical the to stable operation of your computer.

You want the download labeled as such:

Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP (exe)

Installs graphic drivers version 14.10.3 for the integrated graphics controller of Intel® 845G chipsets.
