Windows 8.1 (64-bits): Computer crashing after resuming suspended activity.

Question: Windows 8.1 (64-bits): Computer crashing after resuming suspended activity.

Hello, I'm having an issue with my Windows 8.1 that the computer always crash after I want to resume to my suspended activity. I've read in other places that the issue was the Hybrid Shutdown. Well, for some reason, my computer does not have this option, but I was able to disable it via regedit.exe and cmd.exe.
 
By other people complaints, this issue happened just after they upgraded to Windows 8.1, when for me, it happened in the last update (I was already using Windows 8.1 and my computer was suspending it just fine).
 
I use suspend on my computer for fast loading time, instead of powering on and off. I was doing this for forty (40) days, before I decided to restart to make some updates (The Windows Update was realized between 12/31/2014 and 01/01/2015):
 
The latest updates were: 
KB3000850 (Optional update) ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3000850/en-us )
KB3013769 (Optional update) ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3013769/en-us )
KB3013816 (Optional update) ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3013816/en-us )
KB3014442 (???) [Not shown on the Update History table] ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3014442/en-us *)
 
*This link redirects to the KB300850 support link.
 
There was also a Intel update (my Graphics Card is Intel-based), which I haven't found on the list of the updates (possibly this update is only shown on the Intel graphics program.
 
As mentioned above, I edited some values on regedit.exe and cmd.exe. On the regedit, I did this:
 
1-) I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power;
 
2-) Right-clicked on HiberbootEnabled;
 
3-) Changed value to 0.
 
And on cmd, I did this (Run as administrator):
 
powercfg -h off
 
These two didn't affected anything.
 
Thank you. If I forgot something else to include here on this post, please ask me and I'll try to reply it for you.
 
EDIT: The Intel updates were:
 
1-) Intel - Other hardware - Intel® Management Engine Interface
(Intel Other hardware software update released in September, 2013)
 
2-) Intel Corporation - Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3 - Intel® HD Graphics Family
(Intel Corporation Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3 software update released in September, 2014)

Preferred Solution: Windows 8.1 (64-bits): Computer crashing after resuming suspended activity.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Guys, I am a newbie here so hopefully you can help me out.

My computer keeps cutting out when i try and resume win XP pro SP2 from standby or from hibernation.
I am pretty sure it's not a heat thing as it's fine when running normally and i can use heavy apps like premiere / maya and render stuff fine without problems.
Also, I have been using the same psu for a while and not added any new hardware so the psu is operating within it limits.

Any thoughts???

Hi all! First post, so be nice!

Basically, the problem is that my computer will not respond to any commands I give it for a random period of time, and then execute all of the commands after 2-5 minutes of freeze time. It will then operate slowly for a good 10-15 minutes, but it is selective when this happens...

If I'm playing a game (Warcraft III) then I could play an entire match and not suffer this. But if I'm cruising the net (Firefox), browsing my photo gallery (Nokia Photos) or doing a file search, that's when the problem hits.

And then, after this random freezing/slowing down goes on for maybe 10-30 minutes, it will go away and my computer will start acting like its normal speedy self.

I have taken the liberty of downloading and running HijackThis, and have attached the log below. I have McAfee OAS enabled and running at all times, but I will admit that I have Windows Firewall down almost full time, since it has a habit of interfering with online gaming, video chatting, and the like.

Thanks for any and all of your help!

Hello everyone
I'm having a "huge" problem with my phone (Lumia 1020 with developer Preview). Sometimes when I open Whatsapp, telegram, msn weather, Music (non built-in apps) there's a loading screen (often saying "resuming" instead of "loading"). It takes a lot of time to open it (specially because Whatsapp and Telegram should take less than a second), around 5 seconds, and most of the time, the app crashes and I can't open it for a while.
It's becoming unbearable, and i'm thinking about reseting or downgrading it, but i wanted to know if someone else had to deal with this problem and if you could fix it

Answer:Why are my apps crashing while saying resuming?

If you scour the forums you will probably see this is happening to many others...it typically happens to me when I am switching apps particularly when I want to copy a link or post an image from one app to another like Telegram. The app then crashes and it takes a few seconds for me to click the tile to fire it back up. I backed up everything today and did a device reset just to start from scratch as I was having those issues along with a couple others. I'm running Denim on a 830.

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

WiNToBootic bootable usb drive windows vista/7/8 - Bootable USB | Bootable USB

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Home Premium and Professional 64 Bit are both 3.09 GBs

Hey,
as the title says, I find myself in a dilema..

It started when I decided I wanted to put a total of 4GB of RAM in my computer. The problem is that I have Windows XP x86 (32-bits) installed.
Then, a few friends of mine adviced me to get rid of this old Windows XP (32-bits), get the total of 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 x64.

My CPU's architecture supports x64 systems, as I have 4 cores. My main problem, is that I would have to reinstall all my programs, applications and drivers (because I have the 32-bits-versions installed) and that if I stay with my 32-bits-XP system, it would only read 3 to 3.5GB of RAM aprox.

In response to this, a friend told me that Windows 7 x64 wouldn't cause compatibility issues with those 32-bit programas, applications and drivers. However, if I'd like to get the best performance, I would have to download/get the x64-compatible-versions..

To sum it up, I would really like if you experts could help me and get me out of this dilema. Is it true what my friends mentioned me? Should I change and get the new Windows 7 x64? Which would be the downsides and which the upsides?

I would also like to mention that I am a still and motion graphics designer, and that the latest softwares for that (for instance all Adobe CS4) have come out x64.This would definitely be a plus if I change to Windows 7 x64, right?

Thank you very, very much.. Really.
Best regards,
Chris.

Answer:computer X1 yoga 1st gen crashes when resuming from sleep after windows 10 creators update

Often that BSOD is caused by an outdated or corrupt graphics driver, so removing the current one completely, and then installing the latest may help.    First Download the latest Intel HD Graphics driver for your computer from the Lenovo website, which I believe is the one linked below and save it somewhere easy to find. Intel HD Graphics Driver for Windows 10 (64 bit) - X1 Yoga 1st Gen (Type 20FQ, 20FR) Laptop (ThinkPad)http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-X-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-X... Next, try removing and reinstalling the latest Lenovo supplied driver, which I believe for your system is version 21.20.16.4550. Right-click on Start and select Device ManagerDouble left-click to expand Display AdaptersRight Click on your Intel HD Graphics card and select UninstallCheck the box to "delete the driver software for this device" and select Next.Note: The above steps will force Windows to use the default generic Windows video driver, so your screen resolution may change, but that is expected.Run the previously downloaded driver installer to update to the latest Lenovo version and test the sleep function.If you are still having a problem, then I would try the latest Intel HD Graphics driver from Intel that was just released on May 26th, but that involves downloading the .zip version of the driver installation files, and then manually install the driver using he steps in the lin...

Alright, well, here's the issue
(I come on this site all the time, for trouble shooting, thought I'd finally make an account.)
I have come to find that after start up, after a few minutes. My computer will run EXTREMELY slow, I would wait a few minutes and open up task manager, and see that my CPU (AMD athalon 64 X2 Dual core processor 6000+ 3.1GHtz) and my Ram (16GB gameing ram clocked at 800) both maxed out at 100%, with no other programs running. Just after ideling from start up.
I open the resource monitor, and click (from highest useage) and one of the SVChost.exe files are causeing all of my resources to be taken up.
"for those who will want to know, it's SVChost.exe (LocalServiceAndNoImpersonation)"

So for the past few months, it's either I don't turn my computer off, or when I do, I need to be quick and catch it when it does start eating up the resources.

The only reason why it's a pissoff to me to the point of posting about it, and actually posted about something, is because if I want to start MSN or Skype (only those 2 programs that I know about) I need to go through the whole SVChose.exe list, find that one, un-suspend it, wait for the program to finish starting up, and pray that it doesn't lock up my computer.

Any attempt to dial up a connection results in a near complete crash at the

I have an annoying problem, windows loads normally up to when the desktop picture appears, then it hangs for probably a minute (you cannot do anything with the mouse although it moves around) then it resumes loading as normal and runs normally.

I suspect it's some sort of indexing or windows is looking for something, how can I find out which program or process is holding things up?

thanks
 

Answer:Suspended windows loading

use msconfig from the run command and try turn one thing off at once and reboot till you find the one that causes the hang.
dont forgot to reenable each one after the reboot.
just remove one at once till the culprit is identified

Answer:Win7 Enterprise crashing during lots of activity

Th bugcheck on the lone mini kernel dump -

0x24 (0x1904fb,,,) = NTFS file system

Run chkdsk /r - reboot - it will run on start-up.

An exception code was found in the dump - 0xc0000005 = memory access violation. I believe the culprit to be the KIS firewall.

Un-install KIS using the KIS Removal Tool (KRT) - Kaspersky Americas Support and Services United States

Download the KRT; save to desktop. Boot into SAFEMODE (NO Networking) - tap the F8 key during boot-up. Then go to desktop, RIGHT-click on the KRT icon and select "Run as Administrator".

When complete - re-boot into normal Windows.

Reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START | type firewall.cpl | select firewall.cpl above under programs | top-left, select "Restore Defaults"

Install Microsoft Security Essentials --> http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

See if BSODs persist.

Hi, I use an Asus N56V laptop with Windows 8.1 that I bought last September and only recently in the last 2 weeks have I been having this problem. After having the laptop open for a while or after having played a large game such as Starcraft or Age of Empires my browsers are either unresponsive or simply don't open at all. I have no idea what to do so I simply restart the laptop and right before it does I notice that an error sign appears saying Google chrome exe was unable to open (I will get a proper screenshot next time it occurs). Also, many exe files fail to launch as well, coming up with a very similar error. 
However, as soon as I restart everthing works fine and I am able to operate everything without a hitch. It is only after about 1 hour of gaming or something that doesn't require the browser that it stops working. I noticed a very similar thread which I tried looking at but the person who made it never continued it on to a solution.

Frequently my computer will just decide to crash, lock up, or suddenly the screen will turn black with just the mouse showing up... before promptly crashing. This happens whether the system is active and gaming or just idle, no real frequency - it can take 5 minutes to crash, crash when it starts up, or be fine for a day, but it's gotten to the point I'm more used to it reliably crashing than not.

This crash will always come up with BCCode 116.

I will admit, I have used AMD overdrive in the past, however turned it off shortly after issues had occurred, it is currently still installed, but set to not overclock in the least, as well as disabled. I had not messed around with the settings much when it was on.

I've been suspecting either the graphics card or the power supply of being at fault, I'll attach the required ZIP and information here:

Hello Tech Support Guy Nation,

So I have an issue with getting a laptop hooked onto the router signal. The router is a brand spankin new Linksys EA4500 and the laptop is an IBM which is running Win XP (not sure of SP version as it is a customer's comp. at a hotel I run). Anyway, the error message I am encountering is:

The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters

At first I thought is was my router password since it contained a $ symbol so I changed it to only letters and numbers but still didn't work. I have never encountered this error message on any laptops and no other rooms have been affected. Thank you as always for the the knowledge...
 

Answer:Solved: Error Message:"The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending.

You are using WPA or WPA2 encryption and the laptop--because of the lack of at least service pack 2, incorrect wireless driver, or old wireless adapter--does not support WPA(2).

Hello,

I have a custom-built PC using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. After I come home at night or get up in the morning while leaving my computer on during the day or night (i.e., computer has been on and idle for ~8hrs), I find that the computer has entered some sort of sleep mode from which I cannot awaken it. I moved the mouse, pressed every key on the keyboard (keyboard LED came on when I did that), and I pressed the power button as well. Eventually I had to switch off the power supply. Upon reboot it says "Resuming Windows..."

I thought I had turned off hibernation (Set it to Hibernate After: Never)
This is super annoying.

Answer:Unable to wake up computer, rebooted and "Resuming Windows"

Turn off hibernation, turn off sleep. Shut down the pc manually.

Some MB`s are funny like that. Has yours always behaved this way or is it something new ?

My XFX board behaved like that, my new MSI board goes into sleep and I just push the power button and bam, my computer is back up in 3 seconds, I love it.

Copied and pasted from Windows 7 forum
While browsing the internet last night the above message appeared on screen. I was unsure whether this was a genuine Microsoft alert or a fraud and shut down my computer when the scan started. I have now run a scan with McAfee Internet security which reported no issues detected. My concern now is not knowing whether this was a genuine part of the Windows 7 security or not and would appreciate advice on this. I am 3 days into a 30 day shareware trial of FastStone Capture and wonder if this might have been the cause of the "alert"

Since posting this I have been told that this was a scare tactic. I have uninstalled FastStone Capture in case that was the source of the "activity" and now when I turn on my computer I see an "Open With" screen on my desktop offering several choices to open programs for photos. I had been working a slide show adjusting photos when the warning of "activity" appeared on screen last night. I cannot remove this now and wonder if my security has been bypassed. I have McAfee Internet Security 2011 installed and running, have all the MS and Adobe updates.

Is there any way I can check if I have been attacked?

Note: Originally posted in the General section - reposted here by suggestion

Every time I restart Windows 7 and after logging in, the hard drive light comes on indicating continuing constant disk activity. The hard drive light is on solidly (no blinking). This condition persists for 10 - 15 minutes during which time all applications are extremely slow to respond.

I have tried pausing the search indexer and have also tried pausing my anti-virus software (Kaspersky Internet Security 2013). Neither of these appear to have any effect.

Once the constant hard drive activity has completed, the system operates normally, however I would much prefer to begin using the system soon after startup without having to wait for whatever is causing the hard drive activity to complete..

I have looked at Windows Task Manager and find no applications running other than THX True Studio PC by Creative Systems. Under task Manager processes, "System Idle Process" is shown with 95% - 98% CPU usage.

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions about how to track down what is happening and potentiall fix!

Answer:Windows 7 Constant Hard Drive Activity - Computer Slow to Respond

Task Manager > Performance tab > Resource Monitor > Disk tab

You should be able to press the READ and WRITE columns to see which process / app is using the disk the most at the time of slowdown

Also running a disk check would be advised, right click HDD icon > properties > tools > error checking > check now > agree to schedule a disk check at next boot

Also things like this disk check software can show any faults with the drive

This is a rather unsual error message from Windows 7, that cannot even run 16-bits programs, quote:

"Too many other files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of files in your Config.sys file."

The only time that this issue shows up is when trying to run a program as administrator from within my standard user account. The "Run as..." could be initiated either manually, or by running a program that requires elevated access rights to the system, such as starting an installation as a standard user.

The error is seemed to be triggered by the UAC, or more accurately the "consent.exe" file that actually locks up the screen and nothing can be accessed. It seems that the system is waiting for input for the UAC, clicking anywhere on the screen results in the typical error sound but nothing else. The "ctrl-alt-del" does bring up a list, selecting log out pops up the quoted error message during the logoff process. Logging back in with the same UID seems normal, until the "Run as..." initiated and the system seems locked again. Rebooting the system clears up this error, but it does come back in an irregular interval. The timeframe could be from an hour, or more, on some days it does not come back at all.

While Windows 7 64-bit does not have a "config.sys" file, one has been added to "C:\" that contains:

Answer:16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

Well, having the "config.sys" file did not help. The system still have the same issues as posted earlier. Removing EMET 3.5 didn't help either...

Other than the "Run as...", the system works fine with any other programs. While I could grant administrator access to my user account, I'd prefer not to do it.

Would anyone have an idea what could cause this issue?

I installed Autocad 2010 in window 7(64 bits). I couldn't install because Autocad software software is 32 bits. Window 7 is 64 bits. So it couldn't not install. So I would like to know how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7.

Answer:how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7

32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows 7 without any special steps being taken. Windows 7 64 bit actually maintains a 32 bit registry in order to accommodate 32 bit programmes.If you cannot install Autocad the problem is likely to be something more that the 32/64 bit difference. There is the possibility that it wouldn't even install on 32 bit Widows 7 and it is the OS itself that is the problem.You need to contact Autocad and see what they say about the problem, after all they know there own software better than anyone else.Stuart

Sometimes after I wake it up from hibernation the computer freezes after the resuming Windows screen in a black screen with a blinking cursor at top left. None keys work even ctr+alt+del. This screen often appears for a second before going to the desktop. After reset it wakes up fine after skipping the resume error. Does anyone know why?

Thanks

Answer:Sometimes the computer locks up after resuming from Hibernation

It sounds to me as if you are using a older driver for some system component, it's hard to be specific without more information. Very often it's a wifi, audio, or usb device.

Personally I advise against using hibernation if you can at all avoid it, it's always been more problematic than sleep.

I get this picture on a computer I built, all new parts. I can't figure out the problem. I built 4 other computers the same, being very careful when I put them together. Only this one has the problem.

I believe it mentions a surge issue after clicking view details. Specifically, the problem appears after the computer resumes from sleep over night. The problem is not present after a short sleep period. This problem forces the computer to shut down during the sleep period. Turning it back on shows the error (and not specific at all). I'd love it if someone could shed some light on this for me.

Hybrid sleep is OFF. Hibernate is OFF. Would just like to eliminate a few issues before I try to work on it. Would this have to be a faulty hardware issue, such as a bad PSU? I changed plugs that the computer was using, including a power strip and directly into the wall itself.

I will check the insides to make sure everything looks good. No GPU installed. Any exceptional software testers for the PSU I could try?

Let me know if you have any suggestions! Thanks!

Your licenses to not care about 32 bit or 64 bit - they only care about Home or Pro.

If you want 64 bit on your newer computer you'll have to clean install it as you can't upgrade from 32 to 64 bit. It will activate automatically - just select "I don't have a key" when prompted.

For your old computer just install Windows 10 (either 32 or 64 bit) and activate it with the key it came with when you bought it.

You can download the 32 and 64 bit ISOs from Windows 10 ISO - just make sure to chose Home or Pro according to the licenses you have.

It then takes from 30-60 seconds untill I see the desktop icons. Meanwhile I can view the desktop wallpaper and move my mouse. Pressing CTRL, ALT + DELETE does not do anything.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click hereAnd when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.

Nothing definitive in the crash dump files, saw a VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT and that opens up a range of possible suspects.

But the main culprit might be, as you suggested, IE. Try using an alternate browser (Google Chrome and Firefox are pretty good) for a day or two and let's see if there are any further crashes.
Would be advisable to ensure that all major Windows updates are installed... click Start, type Windows Update, click on it above.

I have been having computer crashing problems alot recently. I did a factory reset on it to see if I could just purge the problem but it persists. A techy friend told me to look in my Event Viewer to find the problem. he told me to also keep an eye out for something called a 0 audit error. Not long after starting I started seeing a lot of errors with the event ID 1101. "Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0"

He told me that was likely my problem. He proceeded to use smart words and such, but basically told me that windows has a limit on something and that I needed to go into a certain program to fix it (group policy editor). After I went where he told me to and I couldn't find it he asked what version of windows (windows 7 home premium) then proceeded to tell me that I was screwed and needed to buy windows 7 pro. in order to fix it.

Now finally my question, Is my friend correct? I just had 2 random shutdowns in rapid succession, even though I just did a factory reset a short time ago. I've had this problem several times but it has been getting progressively worse.

Answer:Computer crashing Windows 7

Here's some information on the event id you're seeing:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...8WS.10%29.aspx

The rest of what you're being told doesn't any sense based on the information you've provided.

Shutdowns could be caused by hardware failures, software conflicts or over heating.

Can you provide the brand and model of your PC?

My friend has an ibuypower machine, that hasn't worked since it was shipped to him. He recieved the computer with no os loaded, and bought windows xp pro sp2 from newegg.com, but when he tries to install it, the computer either reboots before it can complete the installation or he gets an error screen saying it it had to perform a physical memory dump. Can anyone help us out? We've been trying to get this damn thing to work since april. Thanks for your time.

This started happening yesterday for no reason. I start up my PC, and everything loads fine. I then launch my browser and after a few minutes of random browsing, the browser hangs, and then it grays out and I get the "program is not responding" thing, but then I try to ctrl alt delete to launch the task manager to end it, but it doesn't pop up. It takes literally like 10 minutes until the browser re-activates and then I am able to use ctrl alt delete and end it. Then, I go to restart the browser and it doesn't pop up. I constantly double click it and then it decides to work a few minutes later, resulting in multiple browsers to launch at the same time.

Sometimes when I'm not so lucky, the browser freezes and after a while THE ENTIRE COMPUTER freezes and I have no choice but to hold the button to restart it.
I restarted it in safe mode and it works completely fine after that.

Question: resuming windows?

when i turned on my computer it said resuming windows. i even shut it off properly. (start-shut down) then it brought me to the log in screen and everything was fine. nothing happened, but i was just wondering why it did that.

thank you for your time.
i just get weirded out with little things like this since ive never had win 7 and its a newer os.

thanks again.

Answer:resuming windows?

"Resuming Windows" indicates that the computer was in hibernate mode. However, if you shut it down properly, it would be virtually impossible for it to hibernate.

I do know that if you don't customize your power settings and then put your computer to sleep, Windows will hibernate after a certain period (default settings, I always change them). But since you said you shut it down, that doesn't seem likely.

Try replicating the result: shut it down, leave it for a little while, then boot. See what happens. It could have been a fluke, you could have accidentally clicked the wrong button (not likely, but still possible), there are many possibilities. But try recreating what happened, and we'll analyze what we get.

I know it's weird at first getting used to a new OS, but once you get familiar with it, it's awesome.

Some things in Windows 7 can seem quirky at first, and take some getting used to. But your particular issue seems to be isolated to your computer (or that single shutdown instance). I have never seen this happen before.

See if it happens again, and let me know.

Hi I'm new here, and I thought this was the best windows forum I found on the internet. Anyway. Yesterday I installed Windows 7 RC (currently build 7100) And the problems immediately start showing. If I decide to listen to some music the computer will crash after only a few minutes. It doesn't matter which program I use. Either I am using iTunes or Spotify it crashes. And I have no Idea what's the problem what so ever.

My computer has two Ati Radeon 4870HD graphiccards, and I have installed the latest drivers. I've seen some of you mention the HDMI Audio package to be the problem, but I don't know. When my computer crashes, it freezes, and the screen either go black or the picture on the screen is blured out in straight lines. Almost like a motionblur. I should mention I use two screens aswell. When i restart the computer a bios thing shows up on my screen asking if I would like to fix something in the bios settings or just start. And then the classic "run windows normally, run windows in safe mode..." screen comes up.

I seriously have no clue what could be the problem. Could anybody help me.

Future thanks, mov.

Answer:Computer keeps crashing. Cant shutdown windows xp?

C000021a Fatal System Error 0xc0000006 error message codes are typically triggered because of missing files inside your Windows OS. Did this occur randomly or did you install or download anything? Did you remove or install HP Digital image drivers? You probably can't shut down one of the error codes suggest a Winlogon.exe or Csrss.exe failure. Can you access system restore?
If not I'd suggest backing up all your data and vital information to be safe- it could be an infection and you might have to re-install windows.

Let me know if you can access system restore and post back

Hi, I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit, Service Pack 1 and I've begun to notice a problem since I've got this computer.The problem is rare, and barely ever happens, but sometimse it does and I don't know why. What will happen is, I'll shut down my computer for the night but it'll have to install updates. Normally, this is fine beause it's only 3-4 updates. But sometimes it needs 13 updates and I update regularly. So I let it do its thing but at some point, it stops and won't continue to update. Like last night, it stopped at 8, and no matter how long I waited. My cursor was doing its circle loading and nothing changed. Now, it's done this before, and I've waited hours, I've even gone to sleep for the night and came back to it. And the only way to fix it was to turn my computer off and then on again against directions, which when I did, it started the "windows did not shut down successfully" start up and ended up loading slow. My question is, why does it do this, and is there anyway to counter it? It's always when I have 13 updates.

I am unable to get into Windows Vista at all. I have a laptop and the problem started with trying to load a program that for reasons unknown no longer loads, and when I tried to restart, it hung endlessly on the logging off screen. The only way I got it to shut off was by taking out the battery. Even when I plug its AC power it keeps trying to restore windows to where it was still frozen on the logging out screen. I can alt ctrl del back to the splash screen once it gets to the Windows Resume loader screen that says: Continue with system resume, press enter to continue. But I tried tapping F8 so it will stop trying to resume windows but I can't bring up the boot menu. I just had this problem recently I've tried to clean its high risk virus, can I get into windows through the boot menu where can I choose to boot from harddrive or will that erase something?

Windows 8 is clean-installed on a new primary partition of a harddisk. All device-drivers came from DVD Windows 8 Setup, there is no any driver updated yet.

Windows 8 can go hibernation but can't resume from the hibernation. The Windows 8 logo dissappeared fast and the laptop immediatelly went off, I didn't see any blue screen.
Here I attached some files that are collected by SF_Diagnostics_Tool.
MEMTEST86 reported no error. BIOS has been updated to latest version (before ver.3303, after ver.3315).
Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Windows 8 went down when resuming from hibernation

It's stuck in a Hibernation state on the motherboard. Toshiba Satellite? They do this a lot.Try turning it back on, then Hold the power button for 5 seconds to see if you can get it out of that mode. Keep doing it until you see the default BIOS screen

While it is in that resume from Hibernation mode, you can't get into your BIOS. Once the system is out of that mode, you can get into your BIOS and change your power settings. Not knowing what you have, I can;t tell you what settings to try. But if you can get it out of that mode, you'll have to refrain from using Hibernation until you can find out what caused it.

I think your dump file is only saying the system is Hibernated. Still looking.

Windows 7 x64 laptop, specifically set in power settings to never hibernate/turn off when plugged in. Was running an intensive external defrag overnight and woke up to the stupid black screen and no lights on. I pressed the power button thinking I had a crash or other, but got the idiotic "resuming windows" screen.

This issue may be caused by the charger as well. Funny thing, battery charges and stays charged, and i'm using the OEM charger and OEM battery but I get an error when I boot up saying that I don't have an OEM charger and to press F1 to continue.

Funnier.... the charger error just started after yet another internal HDD swap but did not start right away. And also in the funnier section, the charger error is about 75% of boot ups and the hibernate issue is also intermittent.

When I leave my PC on, I do it for a reason, I don't believe in standbys and hibernations, I use the shut down option for that.

Anyway, stop this PC from hibernating. Thank you guys.

Answer:resuming from windows (could also be hardware)

It sounds like you may have a bad charger, might be giving odd voltages and the PC gives you that message, might even be causing it to think it's running on the battery and putting it into sleep mode, My guess is the charger might be giving low voltage.

Hey guys,

For over 6 months my computer's been BSODing at random times during use. This is most common when resuming windows from sleep. I've already performed a system restore on the computer (for a separate computer issue) and that didn't fix the problem. Recently this has gotten really bad so I decided to turn to you guys for help! I had a quick look with bluescreenview and it says the file responsible is ntoskrnl.exe, though I don't know any more than that. .dmp files are attached.

Thanks very much in advance for the help!

Answer:BSOD, particularly upon resuming Windows, any help?

Hello and welcome Lord Memphis look mate I am no expert at reading those dump files but a quick Google of that ntoskrnl.exe you mention brings up a few filing system problems.

One thing you can try is this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker see if it comes up with any errors.

Has any one else experience abnormalities after resuming from sleep? I haven't done anything special with my laptop, most of all the programs on my laptop came from the Asus website.

Whenever my PC resumes from sleep, it refuses to open any application, Asus Smart Gesture crashes, so I lose my ability to scroll/slide to open charm menu, Google Chrome/Firefox similarly crash and refuse to reopen. Even restarting the computer doesn't work, because its stuck on the Restarting page.
However if I hold power button on the case, to forcefully shut it down, the PC will restart within a few seconds and works perfectly.

Device manger doesn't show any errors with drivers, but could there be a problem with the SSD not resuming from sleep?

There were no issues when running Windows 7.

Besides these, you simply have waaaaaaaaaay too much stuff on your computer...all that Yahoo stuff and MSN xxxx stuff you have in this log will eat up your computers resources. Most of this stuff you just don't need

Also do a spyware scan using Adaware and spybot

I would also do an antivirus scan, http://housecall.antivirus.com is a good free one.

And, get the new version of HIJACK THIS here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

Customer states he was using the computer, the mouse died and then the computer hibernated. Had to replace the motherboard as it wouldn't post after that. Started a repair install of Windows XP Home and after it copied the setup files it restarted and then goes to the resuming windows screen like it is coming out of hibernation and then it freezes. I have the drive loaded as a slave in another computer and I can't find the hiberfil.sys.....suggestions?

Guys,
The title says it. If I shut down and boot up, WinExplorer works fine, but after coming out of hibernation or sleep mode, WinEx hangs...I get a msg saying it's not responding and a choice to shut down Ex or restart it. Also, can't move a file from one location to another, etc.
I've run malware scans, updated drivers and ran a SFC scan. The SFC scans results in a msg that says "there are corrupted files, but it was unable to fix them...see the CBS log for details". The log is quite lengthy (over 1mb txt file) and I don't understand it, so I've attached it....oops, looks like the file is too big to upload (1.01mb). Ok, I zipped it and it should be attached.

I've hunted the net for solutions, but can't quite find the same conditions I'm experiencing. Also same condition exists in safe mode (although I don't have a choice to hibernate there), so I ran the SFC utility and came up with the same message regarding corrupted files.

I'm running Win 7 Pro w/SP1 on a Dell Optiplex 64bit and 6gb of RAM...and plenty of HDD space. I appreciate any ideas to fix this. Thanks, Dondd

We religiously track Windows Application fault events in our environment.

Recently we have noticed that when, Word 2013 x86 version (15.0.4823.1000, 15.0.4805.1001) running on Windows 8.1 x64,  crashes due to corrupted heap, we find suspended winword process that have no running threads.  the ccorrupt heap crashes are of
the type  exception c0000374 in Ntdll.dll at offset 0x000e6054.  We have two different situations in which we can trigger a crash that will produce the corrupted heap.

The problem is after the App crash the Windows Error Reporting service, attaches the WerFault.exe to the crashed process and saves the WER Dump file.  The problem is after this process is finished we are left with Winword.exe process that are in suspended
state.  They are not visible in the TaskManager but they show-up in Procexp,  these process have no running threads and the End task or end task tree have no impact.  The only way to exit the suspended process is to log off the user session. 

The suspended Winword.exe process cause problems when we re-launch a clean word, we have an add-in that detect's the suspended Winword and will not run.

On a test machine we disabled the WER service and of course we no longer see suspended threads, this is not an option for use because stopping the WER service stops logging of all Application Fault event ID 1000 and Application hang 1001 entries from the Application
log.

We also tried to ex... Read more

The network password needs to be 40 bits or 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.

This is the error message I keep receiving whilst trying to connect a windows xp laptop onto a netgear router. Using Intel Pro/wireless 2200BG network connection.

I already have a macbook which connects fine as do my friends laptops when they come over. The laptop in question has worked before on this router with no issues, however, this is no more!!!

I think I might need to amend some setting to choose WPA but I can't figure out how to do it!!

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Answer:the network password needs to be 40 bits or 104 bits depending on your network config

You have to pick WPA in the router, then remove the stored wireless network profile and search for the network.

For a couple of weeks now, about 90% of the time I go to shut down my computer from the start menu->turn off computer, it just paused there for a couple of seconds then give me the windows explorer crash message. I tried looking around for similar cases from others but no luck. All I can say is it's really annoying.

I'm using Windows XP Pro with SP3.

Many thanks to anyone who can help me correct this problem.

Over the past couple of days, whenever I open a windows explorer window, it crashes and restarts immediately. I read another forum that told me to copy windows explorer from C:/Windows to C:/Windows/System32. Since windows explorer kept crashing, I tried to boot in safe mode, but it got stuck on the "loading files" screen. I shut it down and tried to boot Ubuntu, but it also got stuck. Now my computer won't boot at all. Any Ideas?
Thanks

This is what happened (Some tech terms might be off, as I run a Swedish computer and translating them as good as possible):
Windows update had downloaded some updates and had started installing them. Somewhere in the middle of this, power went down, and the computer went black.

Since then, the computer won't start. I get the same result both when trying to boot it up in
-standard mode
-fail safe mode(also tried with network and command prompt)
-"using last working settings"

What happens is the computer says "it wasn't shutdown properly" and I pick a startup mode out of those mentioned above.
WinXP starts loading, with loading screen and all, but then all of a sudden there's a bluescreen with some text flashing by too fast to be able to read anything, and then it reboots. And that's about as far as I've come. Same result for all startup modes.

The OS is WinXP pro with SP3, and has been running smoothly until today.

I did try booting with my winXP disc, it started the installation program, but that froze after a few minutes of chewing, so I had to manually reboot.

I *could* borrow someone else's cd with another OS and try that, of course. The only problem is, I don't have enough free hdd space to install another OS (roughly 1gb free), so I really need to access some command prompt so I can manually access (and delete) files, and I don't know how to do this. Is it even possible nowadays?

Am I screwed, should I kee... Read more

Answer:Computer won't boot after crashing during windows update

Instead of picking safe mode, pick the option to disable automatic restart on failure and report back with the blue screen error code.

Download Who Crashed from majorgeeks.com. It will give you an easy to read format. There is no Dump Log in that zip file. Download and run Who Crashed and it will examine the dump log, then tell you the problem.
