Hello,

Recently, my laptop went low on power and went into Hibernation Mode. After I plugged the power back into the laptop and woke it up from Hibernation Mode, the startup screen showed that it was not able to restore the current settings and that I would have to use the old settings, so I proceeded with it.

Later on I tried to play some games on my laptop but to my disappointment, every time new graphics data is showed on a screen, for example, when I repeatedly fire from a 'new' weapon which I haven't used since I started up the game today, or meeting new enemies, the laptop will hang up and the sound will skip repeatedly (like a bad CD). This would carry on for about 30 seconds before the game returns to normal. This problem becomes worse when the graphics load becomes more intense, i.e. large numbers of enemies on screen, or going into a new area all of a sudden, as I might encounter a BSOD which reports KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. I have not tried other memory or graphics intensive programs yet, but I do suppose they will spike and lag as per the above problem.

I recognise this problem as an old problem that my laptop once had. I sent it for RMA and the support team informed me that it has got to do with one of the registry settings. They changed the registry settings and it was working fine. Unfortunately I have lost the service report and I'm unable to identify exactly where the problem is after my settings had been resetted as a result of the hibernation.

I would greatly appreciate if there is a way for me to identify where exactly does the problem lie (I'm almost certain it's within the registry). Thanks for any help!!

Bumping this because it's been 24 hours already.

I would like to add this as well, this is unrelated to the above problem, which I am still experiencing now. My laptop has about 50 running processes upon startup, I've already attempted to minimise as many programs as possible by running "msconfig". However the strange thing is that there are several of the same processes on the process list. I do want to lower the number of running processes if possible but I just have no idea where to start lest I switch off a wrong process and my system crashes.

A corrupted video driver can cause problems with hibernation.
What is the make and model of the laptop?
