    PC shuts down in the middle of resuming hibernation

    I'm having a weird hibernation resume issue that I can't find the answer to anywhere on the forum. I chose to "Hibernate" "When I press the power button on my computer" option in power management. Hibernating down is fine. I get this problem when I resume from hibernation. After the "Resuming Windows" screen is done, the computer shuts down and then boots up again normally except I get an error screen in the middle of it. It's a black screen that says

    "The last attempt to restart the system from its previous location failed. Attempt to restart again?".

    And then I have 2 options:
    1. Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu.
    2. Continue with restart.

    Well it's not really an option since #2 will give me the same result all over again. This is driving me nuts. Any ideas?

    First of all, is this in your car? What are the system specs, including power supply?

    When you ask a question like this, you really need to provide more information than "My computer does this." There's a lot of potential causes for what you're experiencing, and without any details, it's difficult to pinpoint the solution.

    I'd first try a new stick of RAM in the system. Bad RAM makes PCs do all sorts of wacky ****.
    Another problem could be the HDD. Did you do a full or quick format when you installed WIndoze? If you did a Quick Format, it wouldn't have done a CHKDSK, which means that any bad sectors wouldn't be discovered and written around.
    The CPU could be overheating, although on a resume from hibernation, that's not too likely a cause. Still worth investigating, though.
    Can you boot into safe mode? If you can, then there may be something with a user profile that's screwing up the resume.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Yeah I agree with DP, first things I would check would be the RAM and HD, since those are the main things that are used during the hibernate and resume process. The other thing to check is that you have good sized wires going to your opus, if they are too small it will cause system instability.

    I don't think it's a wiring problem because it happens when I test the system indoors too. I will give the other suggestions a shot.

    are you using the same power supply in and out of the car??

    if so.. make sure that hibernation completes when you shut down your system..

    It could be that hibernation doesnt complete when shutting down.. and thus you have a corrupted hibernation file...

    What I think is (and if you are not using AC PSU.)
    The system take tooooooooooooo long to hibernate.
    The shutdown controller (Time to Kill) is toooooo short. I mean shorter than the time it take the PC to hibernate. Thus cut power in the middle of hibernate.

    So, try to hook it up on an AC PSU to see if the same thing happen.

    I use the opus in the car and a built in 60W DC board,
    External AC adapter (brick), psu indoors. Both gives the same result.

    i doubt that 60 watts is enough to power it. get a reg atx psu like 10 bucks and use that to test.

    did this probelm ever get fixed.. i just reformatted an old computer with hopes to put it in my car.. and unfortunately im getting the exact sme problem with the exact same menu's. Hibernates in less than 10 seconds. when it tries to resume the resume bar goes to 100% then the computer clicks and restarts ..
    i did do a quick format though. so if all else fails ill go back and do a full format..
    but specs..
