PCI-E Slot not working after resume from hibernate

Q: PCI-E Slot not working after resume from hibernate

http://i1209.photobucket.com/album [...] 1302104493
Hello, my problem all started when I accidentally pressed the sleep button on my keyboard. While that was happening I had just started loading a game called League of Legends, had my web browser up, and had a microphone program called Ventrilo all running in the background. Monitor went black and into standby, computer's main light went from blue to orange. When I tried to click on my mouse/press keys on my keyboard it came out of sleep but still no signal from the monitor, I then restarted the computer from it's main switch and still no change. I could hear through my headphones that the computer had booted and made it to the log in screen, but still no monitor signal. The graphics card I'm using in my PCI-E slot at the moment is a Galaxy 450 GTS, been working fine for over 4 months until now (Uses a DVI Cable). At this point I decided to switch out a PCI-E card that uses VGA instead of DVI to see if my chord was buggy knowing that the card is in fully working condition just less powerful, still no change. I plugged my monitor into another computer and my onboard graphics card, works fine.

Thing that I've tried:

-Reset cmos

-Reset motherboard battery

-Seated a VGA PCI-E Graphics Card that I know works fine, still no monitor signal

-System restore

-Tested RAM and took each stick out one by one booting each time individually

-Reseated the graphics card

-Tested Monitor on another computer (Working)

-Made sure all power connections are firm

-Changed my power settings to never hibernate

Onboard graphics card is working, but won't recognize that there's any card in my PCI-E slot (Fan works on the card showing it has power). I've read through different forums that people have had a similar problem but none seem to be exactly the same as mine. I've searched through my BIOS (Very limited options to say the least) and cannot find anywhere how to disable my onboard graphics card and make PCI-E primary. I've tried to uninstall my video drivers and reinstall, but because it doesn't find the GTS 450, it wont let me apply the drivers.

The other day it made 7 beeps during post, from what I read means it's a video ram issue, but now that has stopped after putting my BIOS settings to default. The only solution that I can think of off the top of my head is to reformat Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. If anyone has an idea of what's going on or what I can do to fix this issue, please help! If any additional screen shots will help this case, please let me know.

With the new airplane tray icon, I find that after I resume from a hibernate the icon is not working all the time.

With some testing, I found that if I resumed from hibernate right away then the problem didn't always appear. But after being hibernated a few minutes or more, the problem has appeared every time.

If I turn off airplane mode using the notifications tray icon, the airplane tray icon remains in the tray. I can go to wifi and connect manually, but the airplane tray icon is still there. Hovering over it with the mouse pointer and it says wifi is not connected, even though it is.

In addition, once the airplane icon stops working so does the speaker icon. I can't get left or right mouse clicks to do anything. This behavior of the speaker icon started after the (November) update, which I just installed last week.

Only a restart or shutdown/start clears both these issues.

Anyone else see this?

Hi all. First-time poster here.

Ever since I copied my Windows 7 partition over to a newer laptop it has been extremely slow on resume from hibernate (or low-battery emergency shutdown, which I assume is the same thing). I mean slow on the order of like 1.5 to 2 hours or so. It boots up fine initially but the "Resuming Windows..." black-and-white loading bar simply goes up at a snail's pace. The fans also stay audibly spinning throughout the entire process as if the laptop is somehow using a lot of energy. After a couple hours the loading bar finally completes, and the computer returns to my desktop as normal with all my old stuff open and everything works fine.

Since this only started happening after the move I can't help but think something got mucked up when the partition was copied over. If possible I really don't want to go through that process again, as it was enough of a hassle the first time...or worse, having to do a fresh install.

Does anyone have any tips to fix this?

This was first an intermittent problem, but now it's happening virtually every time my machine hibernates or sleeps. It seems that it's going to a BSOD while trying to hibernate; I never actually see the BSOD itself; rather, when I try to wake it up, I get the "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown," which cites a BlueScreen event.

A:Crashing on hibernate/resume

Read other 11 answers

Hey all,
I'm new here, so thanks in advance for your help. I am using SetPower Free to hibernate my computer and resume my computer depending whether I am typically home at a time or not. While I am not sure whether my problem is directly related, I figure I should also mention that I recently installed a stick of 1GB DDR RAM on this computer. Now, within minutes of SetPower Free resuming my machine, it crashes and produces a BSOD. There have been various drivers that have been noted as the problem. Most recently, I have received several "ntfs.sys" related crashes.

SetPower Free Runs my system on the following schedules:

Resumes at 7 AM (Sat, Sun)
Hibernates (After 20 Minutes of non-use) at 10 PM (Sat, Sun)
Resumes at 6 AM (Mon, Tue, Wen, Thur, Fri)
Hibernates (After 20 Minutes of non-use) at 7 AM (Mon, Tue, Wen, Thur, Fri)
Resumes at 2:35 PM (Mon, Tue, Wen, Thur, Fri)
Hibernates (After 20 Minutes of non-use) at 10 PM (Mon, Tue, Wen, Thur, Fri)

I have also run CPU-Z

I am having a problem with Windows 7 Pro x64. When I hibernate the PC and then resume windows no USB devices work (9 out 10 times), no usb mouse though the mouse pointer is visible, the USB W/lan dongle won't work nor a USB pen drive plugged in is not recognised. I have to shut down the PC and restart.

I have noted that if I hibernate the PC and leave the mains power switched on, when I resume windows the USB devices work. If I hibernate the PC, switching off the mains power, when I resume windows the USB devices don't work. This can be intermittent as the odd time they do work.

When no USB devices work device manager does not list any 'Human Interface Devices', 'Mice and other Pointing devices' and under USB controllers - generic hub - Power tab - the mouse nor USB W/lan are not listed. When they work all these are listed fine.

PC spec is Asus P7H55D-M Evo M/board, Intel i5 660 CPU, 4GB Ram.

I hope someone can tell me what may be causing this annoying problem.

Hi, hopefully someone on here can shed some light on this latest issue. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T400 running a fresh install of Win7 Pro x64 with SP1. I did the clean install as normal, getting necessary drivers from Lenovo and leaving the rest to Windows. In the past this has worked well.

This time I am having an issue where resuming from sleep or hibernate takes longer than starting the system from shutdown. Looking at the event logs it seems to be driver related. I open the lid, press the power button, and I get nothing other than a power light, no HDD access light as usual. This usually takes quite a while. Once I get to the logon screen, it is unresponsive to both password and fingerprint reader. It sits like that for a while and than after logging on everything works fine.

The machine has ran Norton Internet Security 2012 from day 1 and I have no reason to believe that this is malware related.

I have saved the "Diagnostics-Performance" section of event viewer an EVTX file which should be attached to this post. It will open in event viewer.

Thanks in advance and please let me know if you need more info.

EDIT: It says I am not permitted to upload this kind of file? I have uploaded it to MS SkyDrive instead.

I've got an issue with my HTPC taking something like 5 mins to resume from sleep or hibernation. Cold boot is much faster, maybe 3 mins tops, but probably less. I've tried using the windows performance recorder and analyzer, but I'm not seeing my problem. I've been following a guide I found online to do it, but as I'm doing hibernate, it seems to be leaving things like the winlogon section out, which I think is because it is maybe not used when resuming from hibernate/sleep. I have an etl file I could upload, but it's quite big. Any advice, or someone who can look at my etl file and help me out?

A:Resume from hibernate/sleep is slow

With Win 7 I've found Resume from hibernate is very slow. - takes several minutes to be "usable".
Wake from sleep is very fast - takes 5-10 seconds to be "usable"..

In Win 7 I use Hybrid sleep, 99.9% of the time I wake from sleep, so it's not a big deal for me ...

I was playing on an XP system recently and was surprised how fast Resume from hibernate was.
It's almost as fast as wake from sleep in Win 7 ...

Ok, hi guys, on my work lappy, I've always had a bit of a problem with the Graphics situation (switchable graphics, one integrated Intel one and an ATI one, for extended battery life), but it's now gotten to a highly irritating stage. Now, any time I go to put the laptop to sleep, either in Standby, or Hibernation, it Bluescreens, with the message "BAD POOL CALLER".

I've no real idea what has caused it, but the background to all this is that when I was using the official Lenovo driver, every now and again, the ATI driver that they used would just crash during use and Bluescreen. also, with that driver, every now and again on resume from standby, the display wouldn't turn on and I'd have to do a hard-reboot. this was documented and quite a few other people were going through the same thing on the Lenovo forums. in the thread that detailed it, there were two accepted solutions, with switchable graphics, switch to the intel one and stay there. now, because I'm constantly doing 3D graphics development, that wasn't acceptable, obviously. so the other option was to completely remove all instances of the ATI driver and whatnot, then disable the switchable graphics, leave the ATI card on only, download the official driver from ATI, mod if with mobility modder.NET and install that.

that's when my standby and hibernate went bye-bye.

anyone got a clue, it's driving me nuts.

I have what I think is a pretty unique problem here, I can't find anything anywhere on how to solve it. I tried to wake my computer from hibernate today and just got a black screen. I restart the computer and now windows xp is stuck at the screen asking me if I want to delete the file and resume regularly or try to continue with the hibernate file resume. I have tried restarting it again, unplugging the power supply and letting it sit, I have tried turning it on in safe mode, I have tried getting to the BIOS, I have tried to boot the computer up without the keyboard plugged in (usb), and plugging it in after the computer was booted up and I have tried the keyboard while it is plugged into a different usb port. None of these worked obviously. Anyone have any ideas?

This issue has been random but occurs most of the time. The scenario is simple: laptop is closed, enters sleep mode, then eventually hibernates. Then I connect it to the docking station (or it's already connected) and when I open the lid it automatically starts booting up, and just sits at the Lenovo logo. I have to hold the power down, which loses all my unsaved data that was supposed to be preserved when hibernated. I've tried removing things from the docking station but can't find a patten.

Hi.  I'm not sure if this is a Windows issue or a Dell issue.
I have a Dell Inspiron 15, 5000 Series laptop, running Windows 8.1.  I have had the computer for about 2.5 years. 
My issue started about a year ago.  When I put the computer to sleep, or shut down, or hibernate, it sometimes (about 25% of the time) will not resume properly.  
When it does not resume properly, I turn on the computer and the Dell logo is on the screen (as if it is about to load Windows) but then it just freezes there and makes no progress.
I have to hold the power button to shut down, wait a minute or so, and then power on again.  About 90% of the time, the computer will start up Windows properly.  About 10% of the time, I get the frozen Dell logo screen again and then I have to
power down and power back up again.
I have noticed that this issue is more likely to happen if the laptop has been without power for over a few hours.  I bring my laptop between home and work.  I don't think the issue has ever occurred when the computer has been plugged into power
the entire time.
If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.  Thank you.

I have a 6th Gen Carbon X1. Sometimes when I resume from hibernation (and maybe sleep mode), the screen brightness is very low, much lower than it was set to when I shutdown the laptop. I guess this is a Lenovo driver / BIOS issue? Anyone else report this problem? I have to reset the screen level brightness. It should remember the last setting or go back to the default, not this ultra low brightness. I have a Balanced power setting with a brightness setting much higher than what I get after power back on. So its not the power plan settings. I am running the latest Windows 10.

I have been hunting all over for some ideas about what is going on with my computer.

Hibernate has never worked right in the sense it doesn't save ANY time over shut-down and reboot.

It does:

Say it is preparing to hibernate, which takes a reasonable amount of time - about like my laptop.

The hibernating bar fills with the little blue boxes all the way.

And the computer cuts off just like it is supposed to.

When I turn it back on, it goes through the usual BIOS startup, and then it says it is Resuming from Hibernation, just like it is supposed to.

The white dotted line shows at the bottom of the black screen, just like it does for a regular boot-up, but then the solid line
actually takes LONGER to move across the screen than on a regular cold boot!

More on this part - each dot space filling in, starting with the first, takes LONGER than on a regular cold boot. Really slow.

And on a regular cold boot, after it gets about halfway across, it zips over filling in the second half of the bar really fast, and goes to the startup screen. BUT ON RESUME, the bar filling in continues the painfully slow, one-dot-at-a-time march all the way across the screen.

I'm convinced it is resuming from Hibernation, because, after the slow march across the bar, it goes straight to the desktop with all the icons in the notification area and their programs loaded, whereas on a cold boot, it takes a while to load the notification area programs one at a time. And the system runs f... Read more

I'm running XP home on an HP Pavilion ze2000 series laptop. I keep it password protected due to a nosey 4-year-old nephew of mine. Lately it's not accepting my password when I log in from standy/hibernation(not sure if it's just one or the other). It doesn't happen all the time. It's happened maybe 3 times in twice as many resumes.

Caps lock isn't on. No key is being held down. I just don't get it.

I've entered it some 15 to 20 times at a stretch, making sure about the Caps and Num locks, and looking at the keyboard and typing each key slowly so that I'm not making any mistake, but nothing works, it just keeps giving the message that the password is wrong.

My laptop is an HP Compaq Presario with AMD Turion 64 2.0 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 80GB HDD using Windows XP SP3. I was able to restart/standby/hibernate the laptop without any problem until recently. But now, though it can enter restart/standby/hibernate status smoothly, it would not wake up or resume most of the times. Only the lights for power, volume etc. would come up but the screen remains blank and there would be no light from the USB mouse. The hard disk indicator would not blink and the system sound will gradually become louder (may be it is heated up).

However, when I press the power button for a while, the system shuts down and it would resume/wakeup from whatever state it was before – from hibernation or standby or restart.

Please help me to resolve the problem.

I am on the go with my laptop all the time.  Every now and then I check for updates, download and install.  Sometimes I can't wait and need to go while the Windows Update is downloading or installing, so I hibernate the system until I next get
a chance to resume.
It seems to work with earlier operating systems, but not Windows 8.
This time I had the Windows Update finish downloading but had it hibernate while installing.  The Preparing to install... takes forever after I resume.  It has happened to me a few times.  I had to stop it eventually.
I also wonder if the Windows Update will have to download all the files again next time around when I ask to install.
During the installation process, does it need the Internet connection?  If it does, will it say so where the Internet connection is absent?
Since there is a setting of "Install updates automatically (recommended)", I always suppose the system can hibernate during the update because the update would be done in the background which would experience shutdown any time anyway.  So
it should be able to cope with unexpected interruption during downloading and installation.

A:Can we hibernate and resume later while Windows UPdate is installing?

As long as it's just in the downloading phase of the Windows Updates, you can hibernate or sleep.  The "two days" he was mentioning is for automatic updating and scheduling on a Windows 8 machine, so since you are talking about manually triggering the
update, don't worry about that.
Basically, if the files are just being downloaded and you suspend the system (via hibernate or sleep), you aren't hurting any actively running processes.  However, if you try to suspend in the middle of a patch installation, a critical file needed to
restart Windows could be in the middle of being updated and thus not able to resume your system, so it's not allowed.
The differences with sleep and hibernate are subtle.  There is a good FAQ here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/sleep-and-hibernation-frequently-asked-questionsDavid Coulter | http://DCtheGeek.blogspot.com |

Hello again jcgriff2 and thanks again for your help in the past.

I just picked up a laptop from a friend and am having some BSOD issues with it. So far it has only been happening consistently when the system attempts to resume Windows after going into sleep or hibernate mode. I am also getting intermittent BSODs when rebooting or shutting down.

The system specs are:

Asus G72GX Laptop
OS - Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo P8700
RAM - 6 GB
Video - NVIDA GeForce GTX 260M
Anti-Mal - Microsoft Security Essentials

Everything on the system is OEM and I ran a fresh full restore when I got it. I've updated the drivers from both Asus and Nvidia to the most recent on everything (I think).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I have a X1 Carbon Gen 4 running Win 7.I have noticed that resuming from hibernate fails every other time I try. I'd appretiate any ideas.

A:X1 Carbon Gen 4 Hibernate fails to resume every other time

Similar problem here. When 4th gen tries to go to sleep, the power light stays green, along with other lights like mic and mute. Display stays black (black screen hang), and basically locked until I hard turn off the laptop by holding power button down. I think it started after the firmware for intel management engine was updated to but I can't downgrade it now. I tried uninstalling and downgrading drivers, but doesn't work. What eventually kind of works (for now, at least), is to downgrade the bios to 1.19 here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1fuj13w.exe What's also weird is that the ME firmware was supposed to fix these symptoms but instead caused them for me (I believe);<>(N1CRG38W)
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where the system might encounter a black screen hang
during power cycles.- (Fix) Fixed a number of security issues.
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where the ME might crash when resuming from sleep.
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where the system might hang after boot from G3 power
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where exit from shutdown power state after an
unconditional power sequence might be misreported as an exit from sleep
state and skip a security function and cause corruption in the BIOS.

I went to see my daughter and after she resumed her computer from hibernate (it had been off for about 2 days) a message popped up saying its ip address had been detected in use by another computer.

I suspect it was my cell phone that when in range asked for an ip address and the router, thinking the hibernated laptop wasn't using that ip address any longer gave it to my cell phone. Then after her system resumed from hibernate, it continued to use the ip address it had when it hibernated.
Does anyone know if this can happen? Does windows renew its dhcp ip lease on resume? Can it tell if the lease expired?

A:ip address is in use on another machine?? hibernate resume problem?

Yes this can happen, and it still does happen from time to time. Essentially windows stores all the running information when it enters hibernation, and then picks up that same information when it resumes.

A very quick way to reset the DHCP, if its not automatically resolved.

Start > Type "CMD" > Open the Command console

In the console, type in "ipconfig /renew"

This will clear your stored connection profile, then request a new IP from the DHCP server!

If you have any further issues, or this does not work please let me know!

I have a customer's machine in my possesion. He is running Win 7 Home premium on a recently upgraded Toshiba L355-S7825 Laptop.

The machine runs very well, until it is brought our of sleep. After about 40-60 seconds it will freeze completely. Forcing a cold boot after which it will run fine again, until sleep is invoked again. This is repeatable 100% of the time.

Event logs show Event ID 41: Kernel Power Critical error. I have updated Bios, and drivers from Toshiba's web site. All to no avail.

I have search this site somewhat at length, many google queries have landed me here in my research to determine what could be causing this. Most of the results I have seen involve some type of driver conflict with the sleep suspend/wake features. My customer has told me do not put Vista back on the machine.

It would be nice to solve this one however I am stumped at this point.

This machine was running Vista Home Basic, and never had this problem before. I can log in from the laptop and provide the minidump if someone thinks that it might help.


A:Resume from Sleep or Hibernate Locks Event 41

I actually experience exactly the same on a custom built HTPC with Windows 7 Home Premium. Using DVBViewer as the TV program, the computer resumes from sleep and starts to show the live TV. Then, after 30 seconds to approx. 3 minutes, it freezes and I have to unplug it before I can restart. This also happens when DVBViewer is not running, i.e. it's not the specific program that causes the freeze.

Here the eventlog for the situation:

New HP/Compaq NC6220 laptop. With the wireless adapter enabled (through the OS, not through the dumb button/HP wireless assistant) I've noticed the annoying fact that the laptop will not resume from Standby or Hibernate.

If I completely disable the wireless adapter, it seems to recover just fine. I want to just be able to shut the damned lid, walk somewhere, and recover without having to do an 11 step process.

In Winders, I have Exceed, PGP desktop, NAV2005, Cisco VPN client, MS Office starter resident, and pretty much all the default services running. I've tried shutting one/all of them down before I attempt standby.

Laptop is dual booting, XP and Debian. Only happening in XP, haven't poked around too much.
ACPI is working in Debian, I have script to ifconfig wireless down on standby. So it's happy.

Anybody have these woes?

So I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I'm running a 4TB Seagate storage drive and a 256GB Samsung 850 Pro boot drive. A few months back I went from a 120GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD to my current 256GB 850 Pro and used Samsungs' included software to clone my drive. Well everything went effortlessly easy, except now when I put it in sleep or hibernate it doesn't resume properly. Not sure how badly because I immediately restart it. But when coming out of sleep or hibernate my wallpaper is fine and the cursor, but menus like the start menu and windows are all black. So like if I was to open the start menu it would be all black, but if I clicked anything like where the "Reset" button or "My Computer" button would normally be it performs the action just fine. It's a really weird problem. Any ideas?

Many people having problems with the brightness control (doesnt work) when you resume your notebook from sleep/hibernate. I noticed that the problem only occurs if you set the action (sleep/hibernate) for when you closing the lid. But if you set the sleep/hibernate action for the powerbutton, the brightness works fine on resume.I have search many sites but no one has a fix yet. Does MS knows about this brightness problem for W7 ?

I have had a failure to resume from Sleep/hibernate for a few days now, and while searching for the problem, which I have forgotten the error code, I believe it ends in 00001, my laptop is now giving me the bsod with the error code 0x000000C4

I have uploaded the log file, which I tried to run in the normal environment, but the BSOD kept nailing me, so now it has been run in the safe mode.

Safe mode seems to be running fine, so this leads me to believe it is a driver. I would love to know how to read this log to discover what is causing the problem. Any takers on trying to explain it?

Many thanks if any one can help me solve this problem.

Best Regards

Hi guys!
Any time I go to put the laptop to sleep, either in Standby, or Hibernation, I get a Bluescreen when starting it up again.
It says:"BAD POOL CALLER - ...C2 ".

Maybe it's the graphic card - a Nvidea 8600GT - but I'm already using the latest drivers...

Can anyone help me out?

I have a Asus G50VT laptop. The same disk image resumes from hibernate fine on a X25-M G2 SSD but on a Crucial M500 with MU05 (latest) firmware, on resuming it says 'kernel data inpage error' and sometimes (spaceport.sys) after that. It BSODs right when the blue windows logo with animation start to go away, I believe it has completed the disk to memory transfer and is trying to revive everything when it BSODs.
I noticed that if I have the pagefile disabled, it halts on resume a bit earlier in the resume process and says 'critical process died'.

There are a few threads on the internet that say the Crucial M500 may have issues with compatibility or something, and to update my Intel RST drivers. Well, I don't have any and when I run the 'Intel driver update' utility, it doesn't find any driver to update.

I am about to run a level 4 Spinrite on the Crucial to make sure it's not bad sectors, but I have run surface scans on it before with no error and the SMART looks good.
Attached is both the kernel memory dump, small memory dump and hwinfo32 report (with pagefile enabled)

I recently installed a clean installation of windows 8.1 x64 on my aging laptop, but for whatever reason the system fails to "fast start" or resume from hibernation as it will reach the window's boot logo with the spiraling dots albeit spiraling "very slowly" with the cpu fan spooling up audibly in the back ground, HDD activity light stays lit although little or no audible activity is presented. I can only get around this by doing a hard restart via forcing a shut down by holding the power button. Then it would proceed to boot normally.

The Event viewer shows nothing out of the ordinary.

Disabling hibernation function via cmd "powercfg -h off" does seem to remedy this but this is more of inconvenience and hassle for me since I'm on a laptop with somewhat less than stellar performance as it does not do much more beyond watching HD videos online and offline. I find these boot time saving features and hibernation rather paramount for this laptop's continued usage.

My system spec is as follows:

Acer Aspire 3100 with "Nevarro" mainboard
ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 with up to either configurable BIOS option of up to 32, 64, 128, 256 Megabytes of Shared Memory.
Turion 64 X2 TL-60 2.00Ghz Dual Core

A:Windows 8.1 fail to resume from hibernate or "fast start".

This may help (?)
Some older Dell models had this problem. No remedy seemed to be available. Only recently, Dell have come up with a solution. There is now a Bios update for the particular model (Latitude E6510). After applying the update, the bios has to be set back to factory default, rebooted and set up again to your own requirements. This worked for me, with that particualr model.

In your case, forget the update for the moment. Try the Bios factory reset and setup only.

When I resume from hibernate in Windows 7, my monitor says "Video Mode Not Supported". If I power cycle the monitor, everything works fine from then on until I hibernate again. If I turn my monitor off, resume the computer from hibernate and wait until it is at the login screen then turn my monitor on, I have no problems. Resuming from sleep or from a cold boot does not cause this problem to occur, which is why I think it is not a problem with my monitor. Any suggestions for how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit. The monitor is a Hyundai L90D+ and my graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT with the latest drivers.
