I have an Acer Veriton 6900Pro with Windows XP SP3 Pro installed. After replacing the
DVD/CD drive, which Windows recognized, it then went into standby mode. I hit the power button to bring it out of standby and then it started to loop 'Preparing to standby'. I unplugged the
computer, tried again, and it still had the same problem. It works fine in safe mode - no looping - I reset the power setting while in safe mode, but when I boot into regular mode the Preparing to standby loop returns. Any ideas how to fix this?
