Rumors of my PC's demise were premature.
Thanks to help from yrag andRedneckDude,a presurgey shave job and everyones well wishes my HP has made a speedier than expected recovery.I can't explain why it went into a coma(I suspect hibernation mode) any more than I can it's sudden resurrection. I was cleaning and prepping it for surgery and right before I shaved its private parts it woke up.Go figure,I would too. So far it is back to normal,and I will be soon,or at least what I passed off as normal anyway. So to make a long boring story short,hibernation mode is gone and I'm back.
I can't thank you all enough for the advice and your sympathy for my "condition" Is this community great or what!
Thanks again everyone.
