Windows 7 - Resume from hibernation/sleep
« on: November 12, 2011, 02:20:58 PM »
My computer has been locking up when I resume from sleep (I typically just put my comp to sleep, done this for years). Lately I get a black screen where I can't do shit except turn off the computer/PSU and reboot. I've read some other forum posts and articles regarding this but I'm wondering if anyone here has a fix that isn't well known or anything useful in general.

wouldnt hurt to run memtest, isn't all the info stored in the ram when you put it to sleep?

Also update or change video drivers, check your power settings, etc.

If this change started happening randomly it indicates either some sort of bizarre hardware failure or an automatic update fucked with something, but it is incredibly vague so it could be a simple fix. It could be memory like arenas said although I think you would stress the memory more with normal usage.

It only happened a couple times. Apparently the problem isn't hardware related, but on Microsoft's end. People have always had a problem with this. One thing that made the most sense to me was to go to the devices section under C:/ or whatever, and on my hard drives make them constantly on/alert, even in sleep mode. When a computer awakens (the sleeper, has, AWAKENED!) different parts come alive at different times, so the system can lag/crash/w/e if one is feeling slow on a given day. Haven't had the problem again since that fix, thx for the replies

Actually I did have the problem again, and I'm pretty sure I had a bad stick of ram like Arenas suggested. The only sure way to fix this problem is to shut your computer down and just avoid laziness. To keep your hard drive on all the time just right click my comp/C:/ and go to devices, find your HD's, check the box that says keep it running all the time. It isn't hard to find. There's literally so many problems that can go wrong here it's just better to shut down and restart everytime. It'll keep your computer fresh as well.

Iv got a ssd coming next week so will do a fresh install of windows and see how it goes. Should boot alot faster so not so much of a problem shutting down completely.
