    My Windows 7 Ultimate doesn't Hibernate when I press the sleep button on my keyboard which is configured to Hibernate the computer or when I manually choose Hibernate from the Start Menu. Rather, a black screen comes up and my Monitor goes into Power Saving Mode which I think is Sleep Mode. My C drive has around 8 GB free. I've 4GB RAM with a max 2GB paging file. What's the problem?

    Are you certain this is actually sleep mode your PC goes into? Can you resume normal state after mouse / keyboard activity or are you stuck with the blank screen and have to do a hard reset?

    Check that the hibernate service is actually enabled. You may also try this from an elevated prompt (if you haven't done so already)...

    Tried both of these methods and yes it is sleep where moving the mouse wakes up the computer. Still no luck!

    Any way to 'repair' the Windows 7 Installation without having to format the drive as in the repair option which came along the XP CD?

    To upgrade Windows, the Users, Program Files, and Windows directories need to be on the same partition. Upgrading when these directories are not on the same partition is not supported. Moving these directories so that they are on the same partition is also not supported. You can choose to install a new copy of Windows 7 Ultimate instead, but this is different from an upgrade, and does not keep your files, settings, and programs. You’ll need to reinstall any programs using the original installation discs or files. To save your files before installing Windows, back them up to an external location such as a CD, DVD, or external hard drive. To install a new copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, click the Back button in the upper left-hand corner, and select “Custom (advanced)”.
