    Turn on power managment in your BIOS, that is where my options are for all of that

    Sounds like you may have installed Windows as "Standard PC" as opposed to "ACPI"
     
  5. well yesterday i reinstalled windows and selected repair windows, and it worked fine, and to right click in my start menu i had disabled "drag and drop", and my office 2003 CD was scratched so i used game dr to fix it :D so everything is working fine now :D:D
