    While installing Vista on my laptop I left it to finish installing and it
    ended up shutting down to hibernate. When I brought it back up it still had
    the installation screen on, but it was flashing between a light blue screen
    and light blue lines down the screen with the normal desktop stuff behind it.
    It made it really hard to see what was going on. I let the installation
    complete and after it was done it restarted and everything was fine and
    dandy. Well tonight I was shutting down the laptop and accidently clicked
    the button to hibernate instead of shut down and when I turned it back on it
    was flashing the blue screen and the up and down lines again. I shut down
    the computer and now it's fine. Any suggestions on why hibernation isn't
    working right?

    If you haven't already done so, install the latest drivers for your graphics
    card.

    seeing it is a lap top, start at the lap top manufacturers web site and look for newer drivers . download and install them.

    Did you go to the manufacturers website and download any updated drivers? My
    brand new card had newer drivers on the website than in the box.
