      You most likely need to enable APM in device manager.

      Right click on My Computer
      Select properties.
      Click on the Hardware tab
      Click on Device manager.
      Under the View menu, click on show hidden devices
      Right click on APM, and select enableIf that does not correct the problem, enter BIOS setup, and verify that APM and / or ACPI in the power management section.

      Also, if your motherboard supports it, enable APIC instead of PIC in the BIOS.
