    Please uninstall the video card driver and reinstall the latest driver (downloaded from the computer manufacture's website).

  • its definitely your VIDEO drivers. video drivers not only control display but also play a large part in making sure advanced power options(including sleep,standby,hibernate settings) work fine.
    Visit your computer manufacturer's website go to download section and download updated Video drivers for your model and vista.
