Hibernation Malfunction

Q: Hibernation Malfunction

Hey everyone, it's been a while since i've been having a hibernation problem, i'm pretty sure it happened after i updated SP1 for my Win 7 ultimate x64, this is how it goes:
- i choose hibernate (power button as i've set before OR hibernation option from the shut down menu), NO "windows is preparing to hibernate" shows up, display goes off but the HDD is still functioning for a few more seconds, then supposedly "hibernation" happens, and when i turn the PC on again, it's as if the whole "hibernation data" to be restored is completely dumped, and it's asked of me whether to start the windows normally or in safe mode bla bla...

have done sfc /scannow & CHKDSK, nothing is wrong, the pc is pretty much always up-to-date, but i also do poke around the registry (not manually, with CCleaner) and only to clean up after an uninstalled app, might it be a registry string mishap?! (oh look! it rhymed! )

help me plz?!

Preferred Solution: Hibernation Malfunction

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Could someone suggest how to fix this problem with my hibernate recovery? When I awaken my system from hibernation, I find that often my keyboard does not function at all. The keyboard is connected to a USB port, a USB-3 port. In order to restore the functionality of the keyboard, I do a system restart. That fixes it. Apparently, the recovery from hibernation is somehow faulty. Any ideas how to fix?
 

A:Hibernation recovery w/keyboard malfunction.

Most default hybernation settings include shutting off the power to the usb ports; edit that setting so that the USB ports remain active and see if that helps. USB3.0 is very susceptible to this because they carry much more power than USB2.0

I recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

I've had this problem for a long time. When I put my computer in hibernation, sometimes when I wake it, it hangs at the user select screen, or it just shows a black screen. Sometimes I can reset the computer after it has hanged, and try again resuming from hibernation, and many times it will work after a couple of tries. Other times after resetting I won't get the prompt to try again with resuming (the other option is to delete hibernation data and reboot the system) but I will get the usual screen that says that Windows was not shut down correctly (with all the options for safe mode, etc). If I cannot resume and I get the screen with safe mode and all the other crap, I finally log in I get a notice that there was a critical error, in the details I see BlueScreen and other data, but I actually never get a blue screen. In the dump folder, there are no dmp files related to the hibernation hanging.

Anyway, when it happens, I see several Event 18 WHEA-Logger in the event viewer, about 6 of them every time.

What's weird though, is that I literally have NO problems with this computer other than this. The only times it hangs is when I resume it from hibernation. I can play games or run stress tests with or without overclock and the system is 100% stable. But there is some problem that prevents it from resuming from hibernation correctly, so every time I use it is basically a gamble because it has like 50% chance of working.

PLEASE, help me fix this problem. I tried EV... Read more

Hey, I recently bought a brand new Tune-Up Utilities 2012 software.I disabled hibernation file using tune up utilities. That time I don't use hibernation function. But now I realized how hibernation is a better option then shutdown. So I renabled hibernation file again using tune-up, as you can see in the screenshot. But now when I hibernate, the computer locks with a blank screen instead of hibernation. Also the file 'hiberfil.sys' is in C:/ folder. What to do now, how to renable hibernation?

A:Cannot renable hibernation. Hibernation not working.

Manually enable it in your power scheme I would suggest.

I have encountered this a few times and I thought of collating past experiences of other users on their successful attempt to restore the eco friendly hibernation feature. I personally favour hibernate than sleep as sleep slowly bleeds your battery away.

I just installed a 512GB M4 Crucial SSD into my laptop.

For my case, it happens when I tried to resize the C: partition to a smaller size using a third party software called minitool partition wizard. Windows native disk management somehow restricts the minimum size for C even though I have like 80GBs of free space. After successfully resizing it using partition wizard, i lost hibernation feature.

After searching the internet for solutions, many suggested powercfg cmd but this didnt work for me. I have also tried other recommendations and those didnt work too.

Since hibernation needs to store the OS states and apps into a file before shutting down, I suspected the pagefile.sys got corrupted due to the resizing and did a chkdsk with fix. It found some errors and fixed it. After a successful chkdsk fix, I got back hibernation feature! I also recommend to leave the vritual memory to system managed as I read from other posts that hibernate needs about 4GB of pagefile to hibernate.

Hope this helps others who have similar problems. On the hand if you have successfully restore your hibernation feature, please post your experience here. Thanks!

Hello all,
I hope this is the correct place where to post my little but annoying problem. I searched already but couldn't find any answer to my question: every time I resume my system from hibernation it resumes, it displays the desktop for a couple of seconds and then goes in hibernation status again. It is not a big problem because it starts within a minute and a half anyway, but it starts being annoying. Basically I have to resume it twice, like the first resume goes bang.
I do not have clue of when this started, I switch on the pc straight after waking up and sometimes I am too sleepy to remember if I resumed it or if I was still dreaming about doing it
Definitely the problem persists since the last month or two.

Any idea, please?

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

I'm getting the errror messages pictured in the screen shots below (also incliding shot of Windows Version). The e-mail sticks on "Authorizing". I am able to log on to comcast.net and get my mail that way but cannot receive on my regular e-mail. I'm using Windows Mail on Vista 32 bit. Any suggestions?

A:E-mail Malfunction

Hello Fred44,
I had issues with my comcast e-mail and had to initiate live chat and have them fix me up. They gave me the settings to put in to get mine working.
So, i am thinking this would be easiest way to resolve your issue.

So I dont know what the heck happened, but on my desktop computer I have been locked out of everything..

My only account it (Home)
it WAS administrator

but now its guest, I cant make any changes or do anything that requires administrator privileges unless I get a
UAC box where it says Yes/No at the bottom but yes is grayed out unless I

"enter the administrators password"

which to my knowledge I have never set one....

I have tried the back door of changing rights to this account = failed
opened cmd prompt to enable the hidden administrator = failed

so without completely reformatting because i never set a backup im hooped.... any ideas

thanks;

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes Download in Safe Mode with Networking if necessary.

If this fails try booting to run a full scan with one of the FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs Download List.

If it cleans up infection then try SFC SCANNOW Command or SFC SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

Now try regular boot. If it fails again try Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE - Windows 7 Forums.

Unfortunately if you cannot access Hidden Admin and have no functionality from your Admin Account, then unless you can run a Repair Install it may be beyond Repair. Best to invest further time in doing a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which compiles everything that works best in tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here, and has been used by 1.5 million consumers without a single complaint.

Hello. I just replaced a power supply on a Windows XP computer and when it boots up, the os loads just fine, the startup programs begin to load and during this the display settings automatically change from 800x600 32-bit color to 640x480 8-bit color. It has a GeForce 440 MX card and all the drivers and such are working fine. I've tried everything fix it, but am having a less than fun time. Any suggestions would be great.
 

A:Display Malfunction

is the power supply big and good enough
in the device manager uninstall the card
reboot tapping f8
from the options choose vga mode
when windows finishes booting
disable a/virus
install the drivers
reboot the computer
if the problem is still there i would suspect the supply is not supplying enough power

I have the same problem that Jordan Clout, and I've tried the same things that he did with his USB and the solution that worked for him... but without the same result, the F*@# usb device is still unknown.

I recently purchased a USB stick for school related matters. I managed to save my files to the USB stick from our home computer without any issues, worked on some of those files at school and when I tried to access them later at home I encountered a problem. I'm unable to read anything on the USB stick as my computer now doesn’t recognize the device .

It may be co-incidental but I'm also getting an error message when I try to print any document from the hard drive. I've tried different ports and neither the USB stick nor the printer works. I can print a test page direct from the printer itself.

When attempting to print an error message appears as follows:

'One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognise it'. I've looked into the port location and it indicates that 'no drivers are installed for this device'. The device is enabled and I've performed the Toubleshoot without any success.

I have checked the cables and all connections appear OK.

I've looked through the Device Manager and checked the USB Controllers. For the 'unknown device' I proceeded through Properties... Read more

I have Win 7 Pro and my browser is FireFox v. 30 - lately when I use the scroll bar it goes out of control and wildly scrolls the pages rapidly up and down. Most of the time I can stop the unwanted action by repeatedly clicking on the scroll button. It is not a crisis situation but somewhat annoying when it occurs and I lose the page I wanted to use.

I have not, so far,noticed this uncontrolled scrolling issue in other programs and applications which suggests that it may not be a Windows related aberration, but I am far from an expert in Win 7 issues.

Has anyone had a similar problem and if so have they found a way to resolve it?

Working on a family members Dell Precision M90 with Windows XP that they have had for a while and haven't touched. Without making any changes I get a Hardware Malfunction BSOD. Restart computer and go about trying to find out what cause it and I randomly get screen glitches (such as lines across entire screen) that most of the time go away for a while. I reformat computer to start it off fresh and the BSOD/glitches come back almost immediately. They bring a friend in the form of random screen freezes to a black screen, then back again every 10 seconds. I have no hardware knowledge and the computer is so past its warranty I can't get dell support or replacement pieces.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Hi hydejekyl,

One thing you can do is to check the computer hard-drive for any errors. Check out this link: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Hope everything works out for you. If you need more help or have more questions, feel free to post here.

Well I'm having a problem, obviously.

I installed a new Seagate external hard drive to my computer to free up some space and deleted all the files that I put on my external drive. Now I'm having an issue with a text document.

I open the text document and instead of text, it shows only boxes going in a straight line way to the right of the file. I've tried changing the size, font, even the color and what the file is saved as, but nothing seems to be working. I had this problem the same day with a different file, and I chalked it up to not having used the file in a long time and just deleted it.

Nothing traumatic to the computer brought this on. I didn't lose power, install any other softward, or turn the computer off before it happened. I was working just fine on the exact same document, and when I closed the document for an hour or so to take a break and then tried to open it again, all I got were boxes.

Is there any way I can recover the text that was in the document?

Looks like you have the Fn key enabled. Try pressing it (if you can find it) and see how it goes.
