Windows Xp power Management

By bunnyman

  1. Hi Forum,

    I have a laptop that will not allow me to change the power management settings. When I either right click on the mouse and go to properties/screen saver/monitorpower the hr glass appears for a couple of seconds and then disappears.


    .....the same things happens if I go thru control power .....

    Good old Microsoft reckons the xp is probably corrupted and will have to be reinstalled ( losing naturally all the info on the HD) ....any suggestions folks?

    You could attempt to fix your windows installation by inserting the Win XP CD-ROM and when prompted select the REPAIR option. If that doesnt work i suggest backing up your system data and reinstall.

    ...Thank you Cerberus for your suggestion. I'll certainly give that a go. I've tried every software application i have for cleaning the system up for virus' + spyware.


    .......hopefully your suggestion will rectify the problem!
