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.)

Maybe try last known configuration.

Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.

Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Lock button , and then click Restart.

Do one of the following:

If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.

On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

My computer will not shut completely off when I shut it down. The light for the wireless internet connect does not go black, it turns orange, saying that it is off but now the orange light does not come off unless I hold the power button down.  Also when my computer goes to sleep, when I press a key to turn it back on, it does not turn on. The screen stays black and the wireless internet connection light is orange. It does not boot back up anymore.

Hi, Try the following. Open Settings and select System.  Select Power and sleep, then click on Additional power settings - in the following window, click on 'Choose what the power button does' in the left hand pane. In the subsequent window, first click on 'Change settings that are currently unavailable' ( near the top of the Window ) and then remove the checkmark from the box against 'Turn on fast start-up (recommended)'.  Click the Save Settings button, then close any open windows and restart the notebook. When windows has reloaded, download the IMEI driver directly from Intel on the following link, unzip the package and run the installer. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26127/Intel-Management-Engine-Consumer-Driver-for-Intel-NU... When the installation has completed, restart the notebook. When the machine has reloaded, re-enable Fast Start-up and reboot the notebook once again - let Windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

Hi, I'm having issues with my computer not reconnecting to the Internet after coming out of sleep mode.

The original issue was with randomly getting disconnected from the network. I have slightly fixed that issue, but instead made it so when I use the computer it will work fine, but when I go into sleep mode and later open back up my computer, it will not reconnect to the network.

Things I have tried:

Disabled IPv6 connectivity
Disabled the IP helper Service
Disabled Power Management on my Network Adapter
Flushed my DNS
Went to Dell Livechat
Deleted my Network profile and connected again.
Installed updated Drivers for my Network Card

None of these methods have worked. I don't know what else I can do, I've been having this problem since September, and it's really annoying me.

If you need any more information about my problem please tell me, so I can hopefully fix this issue. Thanks in advance!

Hey everyone. I have a computer that is crashing after I use sleep mode. I ran an sfc /scannow which came back with corrupt files it was unable to fix and I have also uploaded logs from the most recent blue screen.

I have a Dell laptop and I have already ran Dell diagnostics(found no issues), performed driver update via Dell's utility, and updated the BIOS.

I'm not sure how to look at and interpret the BSOD logs so I am hoping someone can help?

A:Computer BSOD after coming out of sleep mode, error 0x000000F4

Hello Auric,
I take it this a company computer that was Sysypreped on 3-15 Aug.,and that it it is linked to the co's domain.
Its certainly has ongoing problems

When my computer comes back from sleep mode, it intermitently makes a whooshing sound. Is this the drive spinning up? It only happens after coming back from sleep mode. If the computer never goes into sleep mode, the problem doesn't occur. Is this something serious or should I just live with it?
Michael Doherty

A:Computer makes whoosing sound after coming back from sleep mode

It will probably be both the drives and the cooling fans combined, in which case that's normal unless it's only recently started making that noise even though you've been using sleep mode previously and the noise did not occur on wake-up.

Provided everything is working okay and you are getting no BSODs or other crashes, all will be normal.

Asis laptop.
I usually turn it off altogether if going out for a long period. I did have hibernate, but that seems to have disappeared from the shutdown option. It could have been me to removed it. I can;t remember.
I know I preferred sleep to hibernate, as it was easier to get the computer to come back on in sleep mode.
I just googled about this.  I have an external keyboard and mouse. So I don't really use the keys or
touchpad, whatever on the actual laptop. So i hit the external keyboard, and mouse. I'm not sure which one works best for getting the power running again. The power runs, and I can see in the taskbar, the names of the programs running. It would probably be Pale moon browser, xmbc, total commander, and kmplayer. The problem is that I can only see black screens in the window for the programs. So I start hitting the start button on the laptop, the external mouse, the external keyboard. Eventually the black screen will go will go away, and things will return to normal.
update.I just put the computer in sleep for a few minutes. This time instead of using the external keboardm i hit enter on the laptop keyboard.keypad, whatever it's called. Things came on a lot quicker. But as it was a short period of time, I'll try it tomorrow again, and see what happens.

Hello, I hope someone can help me or point me in the correct direction.

Two days ago I turned on my desktop computer, walked away from it while it should have been booting up and when I returned the blue light on the computer was blinking as if it was in sleep mode.

The strange thing is, is that the message on my monitor reads that the monitor is not receiving a signal.

The desktop is about 1.5 years old. I did install a video card about a year ago. When I installed the video card the computer would shut down when I played a game that was graphically intensive so I installed another fan and upgraded the power supply and the problem was fixed.

It has been running fine for approximately 11 months.

If you have any ideas please let me know.

Thank you in advance.

Recently, whenever I open my laptop out of sleep mode (as in I closed it to put it in sleep mode), the screen stays black and nothing happens. When I hold down the power button the turn the computer off, it shuts down but, after a couple seconds it tries to start up again, stays at a black screen for about 10 seconds, the computer restarts itself, and it repeats. The only way I can get my computer to function at this point is to use the power button the shut it off, wait for about 20 seconds, then start it up myself.

It should be noted that about a week ago I upgraded my RAM to 1 gb to 2 gb, but this problem only started yesterday.

Thanks for the help!

A:Not coming out of sleep mode

i doubt the ram would cause that problem, but to eliminate it for sure, try putting the old ram back in and running it like that for another week or 2. If it goes away it would appear to be ram. if not, a review of your power management applet would be in order.

Hi there,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and basically it sometimes has a problem coming out of Sleep Mode. I really can't figure out what causes the problem as it only happens on average, 10% of the time. Basically it always goes into Sleep Mode ok, but about 10% of the time when I lift the lid, it will appear to be coming out of Sleep Mode, but just doesn't get there, hard drive don't appear to spin up, screen remains off etc. The only way to sort it is a hard restart.

I've had the laptop for about 9 months and as far as I can be sure, its always had this problem, but can't be sure as I said.

Any ideas please?

My OS is Windows XP and I am using USB MS wireless comfort key board and Wireless mouse. I have assigned a key for sleep mode. By using it I can put the computer to sleep / standby mode. BUT I am having problem in waking it up, it is possible only by touching softly the power button. When I do that the computer reboots instead of coming out of sleep mode. When rebooting I only see the black screen for long time.

Is there anyway to come out of sleep mode without rebooting? Mouse doesn't respond to wake up ONLY power button can be used and then it reboots not wakeup immediately.

Hi All

Please find attached the dump report and perfmon report.

I have experienced BSoD the past 4 days (3 times) all times it happened while coming out of sleep mode, but it does not happen all times the PC goes to sleep.

It's a new laptop, Windows 7 pro 32-bit, I had it since Jan 17 and crashes only started a few days ago. For now suspecting it has something to do with the sleep mode I have changed my power settings to avoid this state while plugged into AC.

I just want to discard any H/W issue since is a new computer and also discard S/W issues since I've been playing around installing basic S/W (Reflection X, winzip, mozilla, plugins, connectivity, media players, etc), nothing dramatic.

Hope this helps and I'll wait for your feedback, thanks!!


A:BSoD - while coming out of sleep mode?

The dmp(s) point to ntkrnlmp.exe as the probable cause. We know this is not the case, as these are core OS files, and will definitely not cause a BSOD. They are just the default files the debuggers blame when they can't see a better cause. You need to enable driver verifier to help pinpoint the faulty driver...

- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part). Upload the new .dmp files as they occur.

Try removing any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller w... Read more

Hi, My Windows 7 Pro home built computer with an ASUS B150 motherboard and Intel Core i3 processor has been experiencing an intermittent problem recently when coming out of SLEEP mode. About one time out of 15, I get the BSOD and a message that states: DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATION. Then there is a lot of text and then a message at the bottom that says that a log file is being created. The text doesn't stay on the screen long enough to read very much of it before it disappears. Sometimes it just does a Restart operation,and sometimes I get the Safe Mode screen. The BSOD screen does not say where this log file is being created or what its name is. I'm not all that savvy with the OS, so if someone can tell me where I might find the file, I will locate it and post it here for anyone who may be able to help. Thanks in advance.

Dell Inspiron laptop. i5 series, 2.53 GHz, 6GB memory, windows 7 64-bit.

I am constantly having an issue that is getting progressively worse. As my computer is coming out of sleep mode, instead of taking me to my log in screen (security), the screen just starts scrolling through various solid colors... black... red... blue... green... etc. I have to hit the power button, to put it back in sleep mode, watch while it struggles with this, then when the power button is flashing, I hit it again, to bring it back. Then, and only then, will it go to my log in where I enter my password.

I actually called Dell, but that was such a big headache and a waste of time. I have a 16 month old and I can't sit on the phone while they read through their books like I'm an idiot.

I'm wondering if it is my video card but I'm not sure how to test it.

Hello JLOinNC,
My name is Krishna and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. Allow me to sincerely apologize for any difficulties you may have encountered in attempting to resolve your concerns. Based on the above symptoms, It is more likely that you have a bad video card or corrupted video drivers.
Try downloading and installing the latest video drivers and see if it helps. Depending on your system model, you can find it on www.support.dell.com. Also, run the hardware diagnostics and check for errors. You can follow the instructions from http://dell.to/dU0fpw

I am using an IBM Thinkpad T40 with WinXP. My HP D145 Officejet All in one printer broke down so I had it replaced with an HP Photosmart 3100.

Problem is I get BSODs after finishing a print job and going to or returning from sleep, standby or hibernate modes. I never got BSODs when going to the mode after a scan, copy or fax job. I never encountered the same problem also with my old D145.

The MS Online Crash Analysis report says that the problem was caused by an unknown device driver.

I already tried to uninstall and reinstall the HP software. I also uninstalled my old printer drivers. I also followed HP's recommendation to close the HP software before going to sleep mode. There seems to be no updated driver from the HP website yet.

I have attached the minidumps I collected from the machine

A:BSOD when going and coming from sleep mode

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

All your minidumps crash at ino_fltr.sys. They all have a bugcheck of 9F.


A driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. Typically occurs during events that involve power state transitions, such as shutting down, or moving into or out of standby or hibernate mode.

See HERE for further info about your stop message.

See HERE for more info.

Also, see HERE for a ino_fltr.sys driver update.

I haven`t come across this problem before, so I don`t know if the above will help.

I purchased a new Vista computer back in April from Dell and it's worked fine up until a couple days ago.

The last few times I've tried to use my computer after bringing it out of Sleep mode it freezes up and nothing responds. After trying to use ctrl+alt+delete and few other things I get this error:

"Logon process has failed to create the security options dialog"

The only way I can get things working again is to do a hard reboot. It then runs fine until I put it back into sleep mode and try using it once it's brought out of sleep mode again.

I googled the error and found lots of info on people having this error, but no concrete solutions.

The only thing I can recall that changed or was installed lately was a Microsoft update. No hardware, power or software changes were made.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or has anyone else encounted this problem?

Thank you.

Hi again,

I had various issues getting blue screened a couple of weeks ago and after receiving some help on here everything was fine. I've just come back from lunch to find that my computer blue screened when waking up from hibernation (not sure if that's even right, basically screen went black because I hadn't interacted for a while.)

Here's the minidump file: Zippyshare.com - 041015-3437-01.dmp

Not sure what could be causing this, nothing's changed on the computer driver-wise and it's had no problems doing the same thing in the past.

A:BSOD When coming out of sleep mode.

All your bugchecks are the same (System service exceptions). These are generally caused by graphics drivers containing bugs or a faulty GPU.

I recommend running Driver Verifier to see if it picks anything up.
Follow these instructions.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

I would recommend creating a restore point before enabling driver verifier, follow these instructions.

I had thought I might have a virus, but I posted to that forum with all the logs and reports, and got no replies, so I'm HOPING that means I don't have a virus!!

Occasionally when I close my laptop, it won't come all the way out of sleep mode when I open it back up! The power light is on, the blue light is on, indicating that it SHOULD be awake, but the screen is dark and the keyboard does nothing for me! I've tried manually pushing the sleep button, which will go back and forth from blue to yellow, but the screen does not come back on. I was prompted to send a report to Windows the first time, and the report called the shut down a blue screen shut down....don't know if it really was, or if that's what they call it when you shut down by just holding down the power key until it turns off Which, BTW, is the ONLY way I've been able to "unstick" it...cut the power and then reboot. There have also been a few times in the past month or so that I have closed the notebook, and when I went back to it there was a message that it had shut down unexpectedly and rebooted, but it doesn't say why.

I searched this forum, and found a reply that suggested that the poster update their drivers and/or firmware...so I went to the HP Update feature and tried that, but it says there are no updates

If there is no way to FIX this problem, does anyone at least know another way to shut down so that the programs have a chance to close properly????

I am not sure what is causing this issue on my dads laptop. He only uses it for work with email and excel mostly. He surf's the internet but nothing malicious as far as I can see.

I'm trying to talk to him about running the Windows 7 forums diagnostic tool. He doesn't seem to be able to grasp what I am asking him to do. Is it possible if I was able to get him to send me the .dmp files from his harddrive to mine and have them uploaded that way for someone to help me out?

Please help me!

Here is what happened:
My PC is in sleep mode so I tap Esc a few times, then get to the locked screen and my mouse and keyboard are no longer working so i press and hold power to shut it down.

Next I start it up only to find "Missing Operating System" so I basically start freaking out shut down and restart, then reset, hit the kill switch, etc only to find the same message greeting me again.

I try to calm down, get some sleep and started working on it this morning.

I have Vista Ultimate x64 so i search around on google and find that there is a recovery disc downloadable iso... yadda yadda yadda, i eventually get to the repair screen but I don't have any operating system showing. So I read in the forums here for a bit and basically can't find anything so I just click Next without having an operating system showing.

Then I click Startup Repair simply because I thought it sounded like the best option for me at the momment, considering I can't startup my computer so I think it should be repaired.

So now for the last hour I have been staring at the Startup Repair say "Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..." and a status bar reads "Attempting repairs..." with an animated blue line scrolling across. I think I'm going to go insane if I have to keep looking at this. PLEASE help me, should i restart? How do I get my old operating system recognized in the first recovery screen? How do I get my PC back onlin... Read more

Hi there @petersonlandm, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are having issues with waking from sleep and hibernate and the keyboard and mouse not responding when you do. I am happy to help with this. Please check out this page: HP PCs - Sleep and Hibernate Issues (Windows 10, 8). You will want to check all of it, but be sure you have see your computer to wake from either the keyboard and mouse, and in the power settings the USB ports and wireless or Bluetooth are getting power when sleep/hibernate goes on.   Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

If i allow or manually put the computer into sleep mode and try to wake up it crashes. I start windows normally and use who crashed to analyze. This is what I get. Its only when going into sleep mode, never anything else.

I built the PC myself and everything is install correctly and brand new. It isnt the first PC ive built either. Ive checked all the drivers, at least I think I have......any ideas?

A:Windows 7 Only Crashes Coming Out of Sleep Mode

These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in &q... Read more

OK, my computer blue screens when it comes out of SLEEP mode. It is not every time, probably 1 out of every 7 or 8 times. But it is always coming out of sleep mode (not hibernate mode). The bluescreen references file: NVLDDMKM.SYS which is a driver file for my video card. I have updated the driver to Version: 341.95 WHQL, Release Date: 2016.3.16, Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit and I still have the problem. The upgrade to Win10 did nothing to solve the problem.
I have been dealing with this issue for well over a year and it is getting annoying. I have run the sysnativeBSODCollector app and attached the .zip file. When I run the perfmon /report it says it will take 60 seconds, but nothing happens. I let it run for an hour and nothing happened. The File/Save As is grayed out even after an hour.

Does your display model number show up in the device manager, or is it a generic device? If it's generic, try to find and install drivers for your monitor. See if that makes a difference.

So, sometimes when my Win 8.1 machine comes out of sleep mode, it seems to lose focus. What I mean by that is some items in the notification area disappear and that item no longer works.

Example: Windows just came out of sleep mode and now my Outlook icon has disappeared in the notification area and Outlook is no longer functioning. Same happens with other items in the notification area like Catalyst Control Panel, SoundBlaster soundcard control panel, and a few other items. They just disappear from the notification area and cease to function. The only way to get them back and functioning again is to restart the PC.

This only happens when the PC comes out of sleep mode, though it is random.

Any ideas?

BTW you can view my system specs for questions concerning it.

Screen saver is set to "none"

I'm about to remove the password from my login account altogether, just to get rid of this annoyance.

Is there something else that could be causing this behavior? Because I am at wit's end with this issue. The only band-aid I have is to run the Caffeine utility to prevent the system from sleeping.

Did you install SP1 for 7? This could be unrelated but I know that SP1 has caused issues with Win7 and sleep state behavior. Perhaps you've been hit by this bug?

It's the USB Intellimouse Optical which i was able to get it working by just changing the usb port. Not sure why this would fix it since the usb port i took it out of works fine with anything else i plug into it, it was just the erratic movement of the mouse issue on it. I'll leave this one as one of the Windows 7 usb issues can continue using the other usb port.thanks for the help on this.Billy
