I have one issue with my laptop (Windows 7, Service Pack 1). Thank you so much for your time and help in advance!
This issue has occurred in the last week, and I have no recollection of what made this issue to occur suddenly. My laptop does not properly hibernate or shut down - and it began to take like ten minutes to get turned off. When I restart the computer, moreover, I get a black screen and get asked if I want to start a computer normally or in safe mode. When I choose to start a computer normally, I get a pop-up notice after the computer screen gets launched that "Windowns has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" with two choices: "check for solution" or "cancel."
Below this screen, there is some information regarding the problem, and I duplicate only the top part here (there are many, but I cannot copy and paste).
Problem Event Name: Blue Screen
US Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033"
Once I click on "check for solution," it takes a minute or so to lauch a regular computer screen. I can then use my laptop as usual.
Moreover, I performed this "enabling" hibernation as suggested here, but the problem still persists.
I also looked at potential problems suggested here, and I wonder if an issue is the lack of memory in my hardware. My RAM is 4GB, and the remaining free hard disk drive (C drive) is 23.9GB out of 149GB (I have almost unused D drive of 134GB). But, my situation does not really fit into the problem described there.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Again, thank you for your time and assistance!
