Sounds like it may be a program or power setting that isn't configured quite right.

did you upgrade or change any hardware, i did a search online for ya, seems when hardware is changed can cause this, if you didn't change any hardware my guess is usually a recent installed program maybe, try uninstalling any recent program you may have installed and see if there is a change there, if it's not malware virus etc maybe an error occurred in your OS, if you have the install cd/dvd try booting from that, make sure in bios set to boot first from disc, then see if you OS will do a repair, lemme know safe happy new year

This happened to me once when i was using Windows ReadyBoost.. If you are using a flash drive or memory stick for ready boost, take it out and try that.. Hope you get it resolved! :thumbsup:
