Hi everyone,

It looks like I'm going to be a regular here :rolleyes:

The computer won't hibernate. It takes its time then shuts down. However when I resume Windows, I get the "Start Windows normally" screen and surely everything was left open would be lost. Same goes for hybrid sleep, but I'm new to that since I just converted to Win7 recently.
I used to have this problem when I was using WinXP but with a slight deference: the computer used to get stuck on the blue screen and never shuts down. Therefore I'd have to cut off the power myself.

It seems like a possible driver issue, I'm confident that the BSOD on Windows XP would have been a Stop 0x9F too.

I suggest running Driver Verifier for least 24 hours, Driver Verifier will create a BSOD if it finds an issue with a driver. Once you have a BSOD, please disable Driver Verifier, and then place the dump file into a zipped folder and upload in your next post.

C:\Windows\Minidump

If you can't boot into Windows normally with Driver Verifier, then boot into Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and enter this command in a Administrative Command Prompt.

Ok. I'll start on that and post back when it's done.

While backing up my files, I was reading about Driver Verifier. I found out it's supposed to make my computer crashes on purpose. I already faced this blue screen problem before and created a topic for it here.

If this would work as a replacement of activating Driver Verifier, please tell me. I'd be more than happy since it takes few weeks before the computer boots again.

Sleep issues are almost always caused by drivers, have you had any BSODs from Driver Verifier?

Driver Verifier will create a BSOD upon finding a violation against any of the settings during the process of enabling Driver verifier through the set-up wizard. Have you had any BSODs so far? Driver Verifier enabled?

Hi,

I'm sorry but due to a more urgent problem - with the DVD Drive - I encountered while backing up my data, I need to put Driver Verifier off, may I?

Okay, put off Driver Verifier until you have the other problem fixed.

Hi,

I know this is a bit too late but I had more serious troubles with the computer. And I had to to take to a specialist. Probably the cause of most of them was lots and lots of bad sectors and I had to install a new HDD.

Unfortunately, even though I'm using a new HDD now, the problem I started this topic for still exists. Computer is not able to hibernate or hybrid Sleep. It shuts down by itself - I don't cut the power off or anything like that - but the next time I turn it on I get the "Start windows normally" screen.
