Vista Freezes After about 45 Minutes

Hi,

A while back, I had a power failure. My machine is on a UPS and when the
battery got low, it started to hibernate. I think the UPS must have
failed all the way before the hibernation finished. I don't know this
for sure because I was away from my computer when this happened.

When I got back and powered up the machine, it would start to come out
of hibernation and then freeze. I found out how to delete the
hibernation data so that the computer would start normally, but ever
since then the computer will freeze after it's been running for about 45
minutes or so. It's hard to say for sure because it will run fine as
long as it's busy doing something, but if I let it sit idle, it will
freeze after awhile.

I've looked in the event viewer after restarting, but I don't see
anything except routine messages. Is there some specific place I can
look to figure out what's happening?

I'm running Vista Ultimate x64 on an ASUS A8V Deluxe w/ an AMD Athlon 64
X2 4200+ and 2 GB of memory.

Regards,
Eric Mader

Turn off hibernation. How did you force it out of hibernation? Sounds like
it is trying to hibernate but The file is hosed up. You might SFC /scannow
to see if you messed up a system file.

Can you give me some examples of things that I can try to disable? I
assume that some of the tasks are necessary for the correct functioning
of Vista...

Eric

You can bet that the first thing I did when I was able to restart the
system was to disable hibernation!

I don't remember for sure what I did to force it out of hibernation... I
think I booted into recovery mode from the install DVD and deleted the
file containing the hibernation memory image.

SFC /scannow didn't find anything. Any other ideas about what I can check?

Regards,
Eric
