New Install of XP Pro does not have standby or hibernate

I just re-did my computer and did a complete re-install of Windows XP Pro on
my desktop. I was able to set my computer to standby or hibernate before and
now that option is not even available. When I click Turn-off computer in the
start menu Standby can not even be clicked. Furthermore when I click the
sleep button on my keyboard nothing happens. I have gone into the power
settings to check it there and the only two settings that it offers are turn
off monitor and turn off hard drives.

Is there a way to allow me to be able to put the computer on standby or
hibernate? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hibernate and standby being unavailable is usually an
indication that you need to install the latest drivers for your
display adapter.

Look on the back of your computer to see if your system has
on-board video or uses a separate video card. If it's on-board,
check the computer/motherboard manufacturer's support web site
for a Downloads section. That's where you'll find the correct
drivers for your system. While you're there you might want to
check for drivers for your motherboard as well as the other
hardware devices installed on your system.

If your system does not have on-board video you'll need to go
to the web site of the video card's manufacturer to obtain the
latest drivers.

If you have any questions, post back with the make and model
number of your computer.

Good luck
