Hello All,
Thank goodness for this place..I enjoy it SO much ! Iím trying to find
an answer for a friend of mine that recently upgraded his computer
from windows 98 se to windows xp prof. . One problem I canít seem to
solve for him is that I canít get his system to go into standby mode.
I receive this error:


On a computer that has an ATI Rage Pro accelerated graphics port (AGP)
2X video adapter installed, when you attempt to put the computer into
Standby mode, you may receive the following error message:

The device driver for the "ATI Technologies, Inc. 3D RAGE PRO AGP
2X" device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please
close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you may
need to update this driver. This behavior occurs because Windows XP
does not provide power management support for this video adapter.

Iíve already updated his driver to this one: Windows XP Display Driver
version 5.10.2600.6010
And I still receive the same message..Iím really wondering if itís
something else causing it. Does anyone have any suggestions ? Thanks
SO much !!

ACPI in Windows XP does not support that video card.
In order for you to use Standby in XP you will need to install a different
card.
