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.)

Hey guys. This is my first post here, so Hello. Before you turn away and refer me to the other threads on the same problem, I'd like to tell you that I've checked out every thread, forum and discussion on the topic all over the internet, and no solutions worked for me.

I'm using an Asus K53E laptop (details given below), and I've been using it for a year. Two weeks ago, I reinstalled windows OS, and even then everything was fine. For the last three or four days, however, there's been a problem.

1. When the computer goes to sleep automatically (due to power management settings) it wakes up immediately after that, and then it doesn't go back to sleep on its own.
2. If I put the computer to sleep, it wakes up in the same way, but after it wakes up once if I press sleep again, it works fine. If I wake it up and try putting it to sleep after about 15 minutes, it wakes up immediately again.

Every time, when it wakes up on its own, it does not turn on the screen. It only lights up if I touch the touchpad, and it's on the log in screen.

I've tried all powercfg commands: S3 sleep is activated, devicequery returns no results, last wake says wake source is 0. I've checked power management and sleeping while media sharing is allowed. I've checked device settings and network adapter is not allowed to wake up computer.

Just as a last resort I reinstalled my OS again, because since the last year nothing had gone wrong with it. Right now I only have mozilla firefox installed, and this ... Read more

A:Windows 7 Professional wakes up immediately after putting to sleep

try setting the power settings to 'high performance' set 'turn off display to NEVER and 'put the computer to sleep' to NEVER
check the advanced settings and try setting the following (remember this is just a test-it's my experience that the high performance setting resolves most sleep issues and is most consistent)
1.require password--NO
2.Hard disk-turn off hard disk-NEVER
3. sleep--sleep after-NEVER
4. hibernate after-NEVER
5.allow wake timers-DISABLE
6. power buttons and lid-power button action-SHUT DOWN--sleep button action-SLEEP (some laptops by default sleep when lid is closed)
7.PCI Express-link state power management-OFF
8. Display-turn off display after-NEVER

finally--change your screen saver setting to NONE

test to see if it functions as you desire--tweak settings one at a time and test after each tweak

here are my powercfg results

I just made a custom computer by ordering all the parts off of Newegg, and as soon as I turn it on, a light left from the power button flashes green, and another light right of the power button flashes orange, and then it just turns off completely. This is my first time ever building a computer, so I have no idea what's wrong here.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've had my notebook since September 2014. On 15 or so occasions since then, I've touched the notebook and have received a static shock either from the edge of the casing, the mousepad, or the keys. When this happens, my notebook turns off completely and immediately; there's no graceful power down, there's no message saying why it's turning off, the screen just turns black and the PC just shuts down completely. Any unsaved work is lost when this happens. It's not a pleasant experience, to say the least, not only because of the shock itself, but also because I'm never sure when my notepad is just going to turn off whenever I touch it. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

My computer keeps turning back on immediately after shutting down.  I have tried many fixes but none of them are working.
I went to the command prompt window and typed in "powercfg -lastwake", it didn't find anything.  I also typed in "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed".  It only displayed NONE.  I checked if there were any wake timers active, but there aren't any.  I've made it so that my mouse, keyboard and network adapter can't wake the computer.  I also had a look through the BIOS, and it doesn't look like wake on lan is active.
I have no idea what to do.  Please help!
My specs are:
motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2.0
Processor: amd fx-8350
Ram: 16gb
OS: windows 8.1 64 bit
If any additional specs are required, let me know. Thank you in advance.

I have a HP Pavillion and want to know how to set it to go to sleep?

A:putting computer to sleep

HP Pavilion = laptop, correct?

Open Control Panel, Power Options icon

On Laptops there should be 2 settings; one for AC (adapter being used), the other for Battery.

Just a suggestion; for AC settings I recommend NOT to turn drives off nor Hibernate.

Also, I am not familiar with HP laptops, but some (like Toshiba) have their own laptop setup in Control Panel that includes Power Options.

The motherboard I'm using is a 'Gigabyte X48-DS4' with a 'Q9450' Processor with 'Windows 7 Professional' installed from fresh, not updated.

The operating system is completely updated automatically with all required updates and patches from Microsoft.

The problem I'm having is very weird, I've never seen it before.

If I put the computer to 'Sleep', it will go to 'Sleep' but when I come back and press the power button on the computer, it will continuously cycle, the computer powers on, and then powers off, and keeps doing that until I either hold the power button down (or switch it off at the power supply) and then power it back on. However, if I do this, its like a normal boot, no longer resuming from its Sleep.

Please help! Thanks!

I recently accidentally put my computer to sleep, when trying to shut it off and since then it just refuses to boot. The motherboard usually beeps when booting up but thats stopped now, the only thing that happens is the fans all run for a couple of minutes before the computer powers down on its own, theres no power going to the usb ports either as the laser on the mouse doesnt light up, neither do the lights on the keyboard, I dont get any video output at all.
The computer is custom built, and specs are:
Motherboard - Asus P5-QE
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
Ram: 2x 2GB Kingston DDR2
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 6450 1GB
PSU: Corsair TX650w

I have tried:
using my old GPU
removing everything except the CPU and heatsink+fan
same as above but with both GPU's seperately and 1 stick of ram
rewiring the whole pc

removing 2 HDDs and booting only with the OS loaded HDD

after the above the pc still wont boot, please help me

This morning I came to my computer and it had a BSOD from my wireless adapter driver. This has happened a few times before. But when I turned it off and tried to turn it back on, it wont start! As soon as I press the power button, the lights flash and the fans get one jolt of power causing them to spin and die out immediately and then everything stops in under a seccond. What could be causing this? I did add a new new hard drive to my computer yesterday, but it has restarted fine a few times since then, and unplugging it didn't fix the problem. Other than that, I can't think of anything that is different that would be causing this. Any ideas?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my home built computer. Whenever I put my computer to sleep and wake it up with the power key on my keyboard it shuts down and I have to turn off the power supply and wait 5 seconds before I turn it back on. This is irritating. Why does my computer completely shut down and how do I fix this problem? Thanks for any and all help!

A:Solved: waking computer after putting to sleep.

Usually when putting a computer into sleep mode pressing any key on the keyboard will wake the computer. I would recommend pressing the space bar instead of the power button in order to avoid conflicts.

My computer is running Windows 7 professional. It is a fresh install. I have a blu ray drive installed (LG BH12ls38) that works fine. However, when I put my computer to sleep and wake it back up, the drive is gone. When I go to device manager and try to scan for hardware changes it still doesn't recognize it. The only way to solve the problem is to shut down the computer. Restarting the computer doesn't help. If I restart, the computer stays on the motherboards screen for a longer period of time then it normally does (about 30 seconds). Also, it seems that this drive is affecting the computer when I shut it down. After having this problem of not being able to find the drive it seems my computer takes longer to shut down. I have installed all necessary updates for Windows and the driver is provided by Microsoft driver version - 6.1.7601.17514 and date is 6/21/2006. I called LG and they have not been able to find a solution. It seems they do not provide/have a driver and rely on microsoft's drivers. I also updated my BIOS to the newest version. I went to my local store and tried another LG drive which was older and not blu ray and it worked fine so it's not a motherboard or power issue. My computer is running in IDE mode. The reason I state that is because I saw some posts about people switching from IDE to AHCI mode to help similar problems to this. However, I talked to the technician at my local microcenter and he said this wouldn't be the issue. Sound... Read more

A:Blu Ray Drive disappears after putting computer to sleep

1) Does it recognize it when you insert a disc?

2) Have you tried replacing the drive with a replacement blu-ray drive?

3) One option, clearly, is not to use "sleep". While hibernation and sleep work perfectly for many, there are LOTS of folks who have various problems with one or the other (or both). Believe it or not, these functions were never 100% perfected by Microsoft (hard to do when you are dealing with all of the possible various hw & sw configurations). You can simply set the hd & display to power down after a defined period of inactivity. It should work just fine for you.

My HP DV7-7135US has begun recently begun crashing while going to sleep. I've had the laptop for several years and it randomly crashed when going to sleep or hibernate. It always hangs after turning off the sound (light goes out) but before turning off the wireless/bluetooth hardware and fingerprint reader. Sent the laptop to HP, their solution was to wipe and reload it. Still had issues. Reloaded my backup image and reinstall/repaired the wireless/bluetooth software, finger print software and drivers. It finally worked ok with occasional crashes for the past year. Last week while traveling it began to crash and get the BSOD. I have tried repeating my previous repairs with no luck. I don't know what is causing the system to crash now.

I greatly appreciate any help provided. Log files attached.

Is there a way to do this without putting your computer to sleep?

I'd like to be able to lock my screen and still have my files download while it's locked for example.

I've tried google and all, but all the results are for mac, and nothing is showing for PC...

Thanks guys!

A:lock screen without putting computer to sleep

Hi, if you mean to just lock your computer, I am asumming vista, it is pretty easy.
You will need to have the settings correct so it won't go to sleep automatically.

But if you want o have it so you need the accout password to use the computer again, just go to the Start Menu, and on the bottom right will be 2 buttons and an arrow. One button is to shut the computer down or something like that, the other is to lock the computer. You can als click the arrow and select Lock that way.

I'm not sure if the Lock optio is avaliable if you don't have a password set, so you will need to have that set.

If this is not what you were looking for, please tell me and I will try to correct it.

Hi everyone,

I left my Sony Vaio VGN-NS190D on when I left a few Fridays ago, and when I returned on Monday, it had gone to sleep by itself like it normally does. However, I've recently discovered that when it goes to sleep without me pressing the "sleep" button, when it restarts again the blue screen pops up. SO FAR, it hasn't been too serious because I am able to reboot my computer from the blue screen and the system simply restarts and everything looks normal. However, this is very troubling to be (blue screens scare the bleep out of me) so I'd like to know if anyone can recommend any actions I can take to fix this issue. It's never happened before, and if I shut down my computer or press the sleep button, the screen doesn't pop up. I also get the blue screen when I just close my computer top without hitting shut down first. I've already gotten a blue screen many many times, but somehow I feel like one of these days it'll just be a fatal error and I'll have to scrap this laptop, which I don't want to do.

I also can't tell if this is a problem with my Vaio or not, but it's fairly new so I don't really think so. I'm hoping for suggestions to fix the issue so I can stop constantly worrying that someday I'll get a complete crash and won't be able to turn on my laptop at all anymore. Also an explanation of what's happening would also be great.

Thanks in advance!

I bought an ASUS G73JH gaming laptop 2 months ago and just started getting this random, inexplicable error. It's happened twice this last week and I have lost a considerable amount of unsaved work because of it.

What happened the first time was I put my laptop to sleep in order to do something else and when I came back it had shut down by itself. After booting it back up the first thing that was displayed was the window in the images above. I don't know if my computer actually had a BSOD before it shut down because I was not there to see what happened.

Second time this happened, I just left my computer at idle without putting it to sleep and left the room. My laptop is configured to go to screensaver after 10 minutes and sleep after 15. When I came back this time, my power button was not blinking, meaning the computer was not asleep, but the monitor had shut off and could not be turned back on with the monitor on/off toggle. I had to manually restart the computer by holding the power button, and when it booted back up again the same window appeared. Yet again, I don't know if my computer actually had a BSOD because this time the monitor was turned off.

Any ideas?

P.S. My system specs are in the sig below and I've attached the requisite .zip file. No components are overclocked or otherwise modified at the hardware or software level. This is the OEM version of Windows 7 that was pre-installed on my system but I did a reformat right after I got the computer.

I like to fall asleep to a movie or show, so I have a program called sleep# which will immediately put the computer to sleep once the media player has stopped playing.

My computer has been little weird lately. When I'm doing almost nothing, and computer is basically under 0% stress ( reading FB for example ) it's okay, but soon as I start some program, and the computer goes under stress ( fans start to go faster ) it kind of 'freezes' for sec, then continues.

This hasn't really bothered me so much until today.

I Was playing League of Legends and the game ( match ) was loading. My fans were running very lightly, even thought it was loading ( I have putted the fan speeds to slowest from Asrock autotuner about 3 months ago, not a one problem has occurred until recently this weirdness ). Anyway the moment when the match was about to start, first my fans went crazy, then the screen went black, fans slowed down, and it said " computer going to sleep " or something. Then few seconds later it shutdown and restarted. This same thing happen'd 2-3 times in row, when I was trying to get back to the game. Now I'm here writing this and running a virus check. It seems like it doesn't crash until I open up some heavy program.

Anyways, I got some Minidumps. I'm hoping you could analyze them and check if you can find any reason for this.

My specs are in my profile.

Thanks in advance !

I normally put my computer asleep overnight. The last few days it has shut itself down and it takes an overly long time to reboot it (upwards of 3-4 minutes). I have attached the zipped folder per site instructions. Thanks so much for your help.

A:computer turns itself on when in sleep mode

Your network connections may be interfering with Sleep Mode - check the settings.

1. Go to Start, type Device Manager and then press Enter
2. Expand Network adapters
3. Right click a network adapter and then click Properties.
4. Click Power Management
5. Make sure the box, Allow this device to wake the computer is NOT TICKED.

Apply this to all network adapters.

Hi everyone,

This is a really small problem but I just want to get down to the cause of it. I am running windows 10 with dual monitors and every time the computer goes to sleep one of the monitors turns off and requires me to push the power button on the monitor to turn it back on. Both monitors are LG LED 23EN43 but it only happens on one of them. Any ideas why this might be happening and how to stop it?

Hello Seveners!

I have been having trouble with a BSOD for a while now. It is getting to that extent that I bare it any longer! I need help!

Firstly, these BSOD's have been happening randomly, but normally the case is while it is in sleep, or when I put it to sleep, the screen will go black, but the laptop will refuse to actually sleep. It remains in this state of useless on-ness until either I pull the plug or it decides to BSOD.

I have a program called Soluto, which sends the details of the BSOD to my email. It said the error code was 1000009F and the likely cause was: nt driver.

I ran verifier.exe and restarted. Upon restarting I was constantly greeted by a BSOD informing me that there was a problem with HIDCLASS.SYS. Upon restarting with last known good configuration, I am here, looking for help! There are 6 results for HIDCLASS.SYS on my laptop, all seeming to point to AMD.

I have attached my Minidumps from today (two BSODes), my system NFO and a picture taken of the BSOD when booting after running verifier.exe. They are zipped as one, due to the fact that uploading of NFO files doesn't seem to be supported.

This is getting increasingly infuriating as I am constantly losing work!

System specs can be found on my profile and in the NFO.

I appreciate any help!

Many thanks,


A:Numerous BSOD's. Normally caused while in sleep / putting to sleep.

What USB devices have you got installed?

I believe we are looking at a USB device causing a bugcheck.
Do you have a gaming mouse or any mouse drivers installed?

HIDCLASS.SYS appears to be mainly caused by mouse drivers.

Because a lot of driver power state failures are caused by graphics drivers I recommend updating yours as it is very outdated.
Here's some instructions if you are unsure how to update it.

Hi, There seems to be a problem with the power management on my T570. I have two batteries, and I think the main one to be used is the battery 2. Sometimes, I'll be working unplugged, and my computer randomly turns off. Not the usual "Windows turning off" sequence, but an immediate blackout with no feedback. When I turn the computer back on, I see that Battery 2 is at 0% and Battery 1 is now in use. It does seem to be a problem in the power management, no? Thank you,Fred

A:My computer turns off immediately when Battery 2 reaches 0%, even if Battery 1 is 100%

Sounds like power management or battery reporting status wrong.  Are you still under warranty? If yes, call support first.  Can you get (borrow) another battery to try?

I have a rather confusing problem with my newly built PC. The other day I was using my computer and it randomly shutdown on me without warning. I tried to turn it back on but the fans would only start to spin up but it wouldn't post. I let it sit for an hour and everything seemed fine. Then it happened again yesterday. This time I took notice of every detail. The computer seemed pretty hot. I did some testing and I learned that the CPU fan isn't turning on after I take the computer out of sleep mode. I tried all the settings in the BIOS and checked connections but it persists. I also uninstalled all the programs on my system that have fan controllers built in and tried swapping PSUs. Sleep mode is currently disabled. Has anyone ever seen this before? I think that the fan isn't getting enough voltage to get going because it starts to spin and quits about 50%. Sometimes it turns on sometimes nothing. The scary thing is my motherboard didn't give me any warning about the temps and for some reason my computer doesn't report the correct temps in any of my utilities. Bad sensors? Bug in BIOS? I don't know what else to check. Thanks

A:My CPU fan turns off after computer wakes from sleep mode

Are you sure the cpu fan is plugged into the CPU fan header and not a generic fan header, often theres one right next to the CPU one.

Hi. Bought a brand new computer with no OS or anything, only put together. Now I would like to get to BIOs to get an OS on it, but I can't get any access. The motherboard has integrated Ati Radeon HD 4200 card. Monitor is like 10 years old CRT. Could the problem be too high motherboard native resolution for the monitor? Computer does nearly nothing after turning on, only disc drive starts flashing (besides the obvious sounds of the vent and the on-light), no beeps or anything.

A:Monitor turns on sleep mode when connecting new computer on the VGA

Firstly you don't need to go into bios to run the CD for the O.S, and no CRT monitors don't use very hight resolution but it sounds like a graphics card issue or the VGA cable is dodgy. Try plug your computer into a newer LCD/LED monitor and that should fix the issue.

A few days ago, my computer stopped sleeping. When I press the sleep button, my screens will fade to black, and then just turn back on again after a few seconds. I can't think of anything that changed to cause this. I have tried:
Sleeping from the command line (same result as button)
Closing amp WinOFF (had this for a while, but just to be sure)
Disabling Wake-On-Lan
Unplugging nonessential devices
System restore - Failed
Unplugging my DP monitor, in case it was that weird power issue I've heard about
The only think I can think of that might have caused it is a system update. Does anyone either know how to fix this, or a place I could find an error log? I couldn't find anything myself in Event Viewer, but I'm not an expert at it. Also I doubt this is worth noting, but it sets my Skype to offline. System specs are relevant. Any ideas?

Hello, I have an HP DV2715nr and when I turn it on, it turns right of, some times it stays on for 1 second or 3 or even 5, but it never goes to bios unless it turns on right so there's nothing i can do software wise until it works. The fan always turns on and the lights, and the light to the hard drive. It does the same thing without the hard drive and it never goes into bios. It will eventually turn on right and when it does, it runs fine and never turns off unexpectedly. The only error I get is when I run the resource and performance monitor: The devise, adfs, is reporting "tv_ConfigMgrErr24". This device will not be available until the issue is resolved. The Plug and Play Id for the devise is ROOT\LEGACY_ADFS\0000.

The last thing i remember doing when it was working correctly was deleting my XP partition from my Win7/XP dual boot.

A:Laptop turns off immediately

Install a new drive using your HP System restore disk set.
You may be able to rescue some of the date by placing the drive in an external USB enclosure then dragging and dropping the critical data that was not in the partition you damaged.
If you don't need the data on the defective drive, and do not have a restore disk set, you can buy the restore disks from HP for $27 - $35, depending on number of disks, including FedEx shipping... or using a Windows XP Professional disk in R for Repair mode...
You might also be able to run Windows 7 disk in repair mode, although I have not tried that.
