    help would be greatly apreciated...
    First, this has nothing to do with this thread.
    Second, this has been brought up already. Go check out the FAQ Emporium. I believe the answer you seek is there.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    interesting, but wouldnt you still have to hit f8 to bring up the prompt thats gives you the option to continue booting or delete the hib. file

    ou do have a point but it is a little overkill as you have the reset button if all else fails.

    What he is talking about is the situation when the XP recover from hibernation mode fails. After this, XP will not boot until you plug in a keyboard and choose either "delete hibernation file and boot normally" or "try again". Win2k3 deletes this file by default and boots normally if hibernation fails(i think).

    I really hate this in XP, becuase it is the only thing I ever need a keyboard for during "normal" operation of my CarPC.
