A while back my computer got a bug that wouldn't allow Windows to boot, so eventually I got it fixed. I trusted someone who recommended this computer tech guy they used many times for their business, and I ended up with the wrong version of Vista (he had to do a reinstall, I had 64-bit, guy put in 32-bit), lots of things missing. Soon after I turned it on after getting it back, I got a Windows error message saying this may be a counterfeit version of Windows. So I didn't use it for a while since I wanted to get it all taken care of. I notice every time I turn the computer on, there's these white words on the screen right before Windows starts, but it's too fast to read. I'm still waiting for certain things, but I;ve been using it again until I again will have to reinstall Windows with a 64-bit version. I realized the computer won't go into Sleep or Hibernate mode automatically (will only if I manually do it). I checked the advanced power settings and it's set correctly to Sleep and Hibernate. What could be reasons for this? There's hardly any processes even running. I didn't even load my computer up with anything yet since I'm still waiting to reinstall. I just put on Iobit Malware Fighter. I also just realized the version of Internet Explorer that was on here when I got the computer back, is only IE 7! I don't know what this guy did, but in the meantime, I would like to get it to be able to sleep and hibernate automatically.
