    Windows XP hibernation problem: delete corrupt hibernation data?

    When my carputer started up yesterday, XP went to a text screen telling me that my hibernation data is corrupt and my (only) choice was to delete it and start Windows XP up from scratch. This does not happen often, maybe once every couple of months or so, so it wouldn't bother me except for the fact that I don't have a keyboard installed in my car. I tried rebooting many times, but I cannot get XP to boot without first telling it to delete my corrupt hibernation data. I'll be taking a keyboard out to my car in a few minutes just to get past that screen, but does anyone have a better solution? Is there any way to tell Windows to automatically delete a hibernation file if it looks to be corrupt? I need a better solution than keeping a keyboard stored in the car, or taking one out to the garage every couple of months, when this happens. Ideas?

    I get this too. It is pretty annoying. Mostly all i have to do is reboot (without deleting the hibernation file) and it comes up.

    I would check you connections on the IDE cables to the hard drive.

    I am interested in developing ideas further on this subject

    i've had this a few times and thought alot about it, here's my conclusion:

    it says in the microsoft papers not to set a horm point while other drives are plugged in due to caching corruption possibilities. i'm currently trying to come up with a solution.

    do you guys have other drives plugged in (secondary music\movies drive, etc.) while setting your horm point?
