Hi,

Since about a week I have a strange problem with standby-modus: the system doesn't come out. Sometimes it is simply dead, sometimes it tries to turn on, but stays by the black screen with a blinking cursor. The only help is reset, because keyboard doesn't work too. Does anybody know, what can the problem be? I use Win98.

Regards.

We need a computer description and what OS, before we can proceed.

First thing you can try is go into your Bios and disable powermanagement. WIndows will handle it without Bios enabled

Here are two relevant articles :
1) http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q190/3/62.ASP?LNG=ENG&SA=ALLKB&FR=0
2) http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q187/7/27.ASP?LNG=ENG&SA=ALLKB&FR=0

If neither of these help, who made the computer since there are brand specific problems also.

Your motheboard/BIOIS may not be able to handle Win98's power management.
Try  sorgie's suggestion first

since i am bios engineer , i feel that i can answer u,

AS celtics said, the problem is with ur power management. as celtics said go to bios and disable power management

and also select ACPI AWARE OS = No , if there is a option like that in ur bios.

Win 98 supports ACPI(power management) and most of the problems r because of that only.
