Hi everybody, I have installed Windows XP SP2 and i can't hibernate, when I try to do...I get a Blue Screen of Death
Anybody knows what can I do?
What does the blue screen tell you? What does the system log (eventvwr.exe) tell you ?
My CN-10000 does not have problems hibernating, so it could be some extra hardware you have installed.
BTW: Can you run all 3D tests in dxdiag with your board ?
I don't see any hints in the event log. The blue screen is caused by Windows trying to read data from the virtual memory file on your hard disk. Specifically the Windows file system driver (NTFS.sys) crashed while reading paged (=saved) memory data.
Couple of things to try:
- install the latest Hyperion Pro drivers you can find on Via's website
- alter the BIOS settings with regards to your hard disk (disable UDMA, block transfer, etc.)
- try a different hard disk
- try a different memory stick (or at least remove one if you have two)
BTW, thanks for the dxdiag check!
It's bad memory
Are you overclocking the FSB or memory?
Since you don't have another HD, try this: Disable hibernate, hit Apply, then enable it again. That will reallocate the file in a new spot in the off-chance that there's a disk error in that spot. You should also defrag first so that it's contiguous.
