Someone wanted a copy of a CD--my CD writer is fried so they brought a portable with no software--it installed--I guess--but without the ability to write. So I needed to install my old software. I had a trial of roxio from my DVD writer that fried itself and my other writer and a full version of roxio that of course I could not find. In an effort to find it I plugged in the old writer
as a paperclip did not work to open the drawer--NOT THE DVD but the good old standby that still reads audio--turn on the computer and POP ( the sound I heard as the whole thing just went kaput)--no more computer
. 10 minutes later for some reason the computer decides it will in fact turn on
--no CD in the drive of course. I install the trial software and for some reason it finds the old retail version on my computer and reinstalls it. Needs to reboot.
but no--that's when the blue screen comes
"Stop 0x0000009f (0x00000100, 0x82073E50, 0x82073E50, 0x82068D90) Driver_power_state_failure contact your administrator." Push power button off and on computer restarts--slow but starts. everything seems normal. unless I try to soft boot. I get rid of all the newly installed programs, go into the hardware and look for hidden hardware--yep my DVD is back--get rid of that. Run norton, reboot--nope. power off and on go to safe mode with command prompt and stick the windows disk in to do a repair--it says there is a program that has not finished installing log off and on and let it complete--okay. Now I have lost my start menu
. Somehow I mange to get to the ccregistry cleaner, run that, run norton again and poof we're up and running again
--except when I try to hibernate--it reboots to the blue screen. I can soft boot any other time, I can reboot, I just can't hibernate and I really don't like knowing that message is there just waiting for me. The message has changed a little--what was in the ( ) is now (0x8204B3D0, 0x8204B3D0, 0x8207FD90). Any ideas? Windows 2K
