Last night, i just received my new RAM in the mail, and i decided to wipe the computer and start anew w/ the new upgrade. So i formatted the hard drive and installed XP Home again, and everything went smoothly. Then i went to power options to set my standby settings, and the drop down menus for Standby weren't there. Then i went into shut down to see if it was there, the options available to me were Shut down and Restart, the Standby button was there, except it was opaque, so i couldn't press it. I then installed SP2 along with all the drivers that came with my computer, then shut it down. I havven't started it again, i just wanted to see if anyone here has any ideas of what i can do.
