Re: Peculiar Restart Problem in Windows XP but not in Linux

The problem began before reinstalling Windows ME or Xp. I have used the installation cds before without problem and there should not be any registry problems after reinstalling the OS. I have not received any warnings about a hard drive failure. I have removed Linux from the hard drive and will mark...

Re: Peculiar Restart Problem in Windows XP but not in Linux

Re: Hibernation Error Message

It has no problem with hibernation in Windows Vista and I found a bunch of files in Windows with 'acpi" in the title. Windows Power Options enables you to change advanced power settings on 11 items. The Linux Mint Power Management has fewer options. I don't understand why acpitool could not det...

Edited 4/03/2011 1:28 AM to remove misinformation.
