Thread: Windows XP Hibernating Problems

    I'm having this problem with my laptop, too. My laptop is barebone. There's nothing attached to it. The "read failure" error seems very random. It happens about once every 5 hibernating attempts. There's no way to re-create it because like I said, it happens very randomly.

    I asked a question here

    Disable hibernate/resume error message?

    about how to bypass the "error message" because I can't see it on my Xenarc monitor (the message appears on the laptop's own screen). No one seems to have an answer either.

    So right now, if my CarPC seems to hang on boot up, I'll have to hit Enter several times and hope that it's just that problem. What a pain in the ***.

    sorry to bring this one back from the dead, but I had the same problem... Ever since i've set up my new mp3 box (biostar m7ncg mobo, athlon xp-m 2200+, 512mb pc2700 and a laptop HD) it has had the dreaded read failure during resume from hibernate, every single time...

    I read that thread, disabled hibernation, rebooted, enabled it again, hibernated, and it just resumed OK... so if anyone else has that problem, you should give that a shot.

    now if only biostar hadn't killed suspend-to-RAM with the recent bioses, I'd be in business...
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    You don't need to reboot. Just disable hibernation, hit Apply, enable it again and hit OK. After that, reopen it and switch the power button from Suspend to Hibernate because it changes when you disable hibernate. You can also have defrag open so you can watch where it moves to. Hit analyze before and after the whole thing. You'll see a green chunk move. If more than one new chunk is created then it's fragmented and you should defrag and do it over again. That can slow down disk access. Anyway, it's probably a good idea to do that a couple times a year if it really is the problem.
