It only hibernates if no mouse activity after 15mins then the monitor goes off but this problem isnt that regular and when it hibernates any mouse movement brings my desktop back up.
Ive had a "bad block" error a few times and it tells me to check cables etc, which I hadnt yet got round to, (have now tho)
Since posting I have cleaned out inside case (fan was very clogged with dust
), taken out and put back in all connections securely. I also uninstalled all HP stuff as I no longer use printer/scanner. And used a laser disk cleaner.
I have several times gone into device manager and gone thru my drivers checked for unsigned and checked for update drivers without finding anything out of place or any updates.
I uninstalled a device Realtek AC 97 Media audio control that I installed by mistake thinking it was a driver update, because (a) I dont use AC 97 because of compatibility issues I had when installing XP, (
I have a soundblaster card. the AC 97 has been a disabled Device for over a year anyway.
Any chance this is connected to a Rootkit virus file that was removed? i386p.sys. I can find info saying that yes its a rootkit but I knew that back in December, but nowhere mentions if removal can cause problems.
Its all starting to confuse me and Im forgetting half of what Ive done to try and fix this. Sorry but to a person with no education in this area its very overwhelming.
Oh and yes I have run full disk checks I even popped in my XP disc and ran SFC too. The results of the disk check are supposed to be saved in the root as bootex.log Ive never yet been able to find that file.
