Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
Last night, I booted up a friend's laptop for the first time and received the message of "hibernate..." which would not disappear. Consequently, the normal Windows Vista desktop environment along with its icons would never appear. To my pleasant surprise today, I started his laptop up using both, cold and warm boots, and the laptop loaded the Windows Vista desktop environment up just fine without the hibernate message which brings me to an important question. Did the message of "hibernate..." that was noticed last night appear just out of coincidence or is it a sign of a technical issue which needs exploring? At the moment, the laptop is working great and without issues.
With respect to technical specifications of this laptop just in case they are needed, here is a basic run down. The laptop is a Compaq Presario (Model: CQ50-139WM) with an Intel 2.0GHz chip, 2GB of RAM, and running Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1. The hard disk drive has a storage capacity of 150GB with 82.1GB free.
Today, when the laptop was able to load up to the desktop environment successfully, I did notice a menu of options to select from before a full loadup. The menu consisted of the following options: 1. Safe Mode 2. Safe Mode with Networking 3. Safe Mode with Command Prompt Only and 4. Normal Mode. This option does not appear anymore because the operating system loads on through to its desktop environment just fine in both, cold and warm boots.
In closing, any feedback given to this question will be appreciated. At this point, my question is more of a curious one as opposed to one of a technical nature due to the fact that there are not any needed troubleshooting steps required at this time.
I will look forward to reviewing any thoughts regarding the origins of the "hibernate" message within Windows Vista Home.
