sleep option gone, mic not working, other

Dell laptop running Windows 7. Always had option to put computer in sleep mode when closing cover. That option is gone. Also, mic stopped working. And when turning on computer, display has changed - everything is large, and need to go back in and reset resolution. Tried going back two weeks in a system restore. No luck.

If you do not have antivirus software installed, see the Good and Free system security combination. for better security steps and scanning tools. Make sure to update the security software before running the full scan.

Let us know the results of the security scans.
