I just upgraded an old laptop of mine: Asus x83v, which used to run Vista.
New 750 gb SATA HD
4 gb RAM
NVidia GeForce 9600M GS
Asus N80VB motherboard 60-NSVMB1000-A04
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26 Ghz
I bought a new hard drive and did a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. All drivers updated to the best of my knowledge and everything worked fine except when I put the computer to sleep. When I wake it up from sleep, it goes to the login screen. After I enter my password to log into Windows it will freeze and give me a BSOD. This issue does NOT occur upon hibernating / wake from hibernation. Nothing happens until I try to login to Windows... I can leave it sit on the login screen for a while.
After 2 days of searching the internet and trying about 100 different suggested fixes for this problem I decided to wipe the whole drive and do a clean install again, now attempting to sleep before even installing any updates, drivers, etc to see if I could find the source for the problem. It does this right off the bat after Windows is installed, so it doesn't seem to be related to any drivers installed afterward.
Also, the BSOD does not generate a minidump. I have made sure that all the settings are correct for a dump to be generated, but it doesn't make one. Here is a photo of the BSOD event.
Here is what I have done:
Run chkdsk on the entire hard disk. No errors.
Run Windows Memory diagnostics tool. No errors.
Installed the Windows hotfix KB97718, which is supposed to solve this exact problem.
Flashed the BIOS to most current version.
Updated chipset drivers.
Run driver verifier... no bluescreen was generated during normal use of the computer.
Removed memory sticks and tried booting / sleeping with each one individually in each memory slot individually to see if a particular slot or stick was at fault. Bluescreen every time regardless of stick or location.
Defragmented hard disk.
Hybrid sleep on / off: when off, BSOD as listed above. When on, crashes, then tells me that the hibernate files were lost.
Here is the Sysnative BSOD generated zip file:
