Resuming from Hibernation problem


K

Hello,
Using XP SP2 with only one user account member of "Administrator". So,
I'm admin and i'm using XP in "auto-login" mode, without needing to
enter password. After i put my Windows into hibernation mode, then i
press chassis power button to resume, the progress bar advances, at
the end of resuming progress bar, i get full black screen with no
notification. The optical mouse wasn't recognized.

But if i uncheck Power Options -> Advanced tab -> "prompt for a
password when the computer resumes from hibernate" the problem goes
away and the desktop comes immediately. If not, the desktop does not
come and i get a constant black screen at the end of hibernation
progress bar end.

Is it occasional or what is the reason?

My hardware specs: i845E chipset mobo (Asus), Geforce4 Mx440 VGA
(forceware 84.21 driver), LAN card(surecom, connected, active), 768MB
DDR-RAM (hibernation space). No special hibernation hotfixes were
applied.

Please help.

Thanks.

What seems to be the problem? Unchecking the "prompt for password" cures
the "issue". If you want to login, then undo the "auto-login".

Update: The problem isn't that checkbox. Usually the machine cannot
resume from hibertation resulting with a constant black screen at the
end of resuming progress bar.

Also the light of optical mouse does not light up after resuming, but
sometimes hibernation works.

Also After a successfull hibernation, my custom MSN Messenger settings
and profile picture setting is lost. Is there a risk to cause faulty
hibernation because of MSN messenger?

You typed this, is it not correct?

But if i uncheck Power Options -> Advanced tab -> "prompt for a password
when the computer resumes from hibernate" the problem goes away and the

Yes, i typed but after testing more, i concluded that this wasn't the
solution.

Is this the same PC with all the other issues you have been inquiring
about? If so, there are many things that point to incorrect drivers.

Yes, the same PC. But if there were a faulty driver, should it exist
permanent?

I think that you need to stop and review what you did to ths PC. Has it
ever worked right since you bought it? Presumably it did. Then you
changed something. What did you change, what was the result. You have a
whole bunch of threads going about this PC and everybody is trying to
help, but this is pretty piecemeal and not getting back to the real
issue that there is something fundamentally wrong with this PC.
