    I installed Vista ultimate on a sony notebook.

    In the power options, I set 'do nothing' when i close the lid, and it really
    works except that when i open the lid again, the monitor can not turn on.
    All I can do is to press the power button to restart the note book. Why this
    could happen and what should i do? This had never happened when i used xp on
    the same notebook.

    Many notebooks switch to external video out when you close the cover. Have
    you tried whatever key sequence it is on your notebook to switch between
    external and internal? For instance, in my laptop, it's the Function button
    along with the F8 button.

    This is a Windows Vista driver problem, to fix it do the following;
    1. Open â€Computer managementâ€
    2. Open “Device Managerâ€
    3. Expand “System Devicesâ€
    4. Right Click “ACPI Lidâ€
    5. Click “Update Driverâ€
    6. Click “Browse Computerâ€
    7. Click “Let me pick from a list on my computerâ€
    8. Un tick “Show Compatible Hardwareâ€
    9. Scroll to the bottom of the right hand box and click “Volume Managerâ€
    10. Click “Yes†when Windows prompts you with security warnings
    11. Reboot when Vista prompts you to do so
