Blue screen errors when try to hibernate

I am operating Windows 7 on a brand new (2 months old) Samsung laptop. I have had a few blue screen errors (usually when I am trying to hibernate my computer at night but not within the last week) and, lately (over the past few days), my computer has been freezing applications one at a time and then telling me that it's unable to display security and log-on procedures afterpressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE.

I have to turn off and restart my computer to try again. Everything seems fine for a while, but then the freezing/restarting process starts again. which seems to have helped a little by lengthening the time between restarting and freezing, but it's still a bit too frequent to maintain a productive schedule.

I have GeekSquad hardware support. They said it would take 5 or so days to diagnose whether or not it could be a hardware issue. If it's not, then I'd have to pay to have them spend another week on a software diagnosis.

Screen resolution reduces after hibernate mode?
I have Windows7, 64bit software on my Sony, Vaio laptop. The fill screen resolution becomes smaller after hibernate mode and I have to restart to regain my default settings.


Registry File Failure (Blue Screen Error)
I turned my laptop on this morning and a blue screen came up titled. STOP:c0000218 {Registry File Failure}

Heres what it looks like.

Now I have looked on Youtube a lot, However most of the solutions given on youtube say to download a virus checker or scan your computer/latpop, however I cannot move from this blue screen.

I can't click start or open anything. Is there a keyboard command to bring anything up?


unexpected shut down and blue screen problem
My computer shuts down unexpectedly and indefinitely. Also, whenever I restart my computer within 20 minutes after shutting down, it shows a blue screen saying some fatal error has occurred and the system has been shut down. I re-installed windows vista but that did not help.


Customizing startmenu makes hibernate disapear
When I customize the startmenu(startmenu -> properties) you can't choose the hibernate function for the shutdown button.
And even if I leave it untouched and press OK, the hibernate option is gone from the shutdown button in the startmenu.
I don't understand why this is but I think it's a bug.
btw the CMD:powercfg /hibernate on trick doesnt work for me here only a system restore.


Startup repair virus or something else
I had downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) on to my Sony Vaio and after a few months I had a security warning pop up stating "found a virus on computer". This was still under MSE and I followed the directions and downloaded onto a CD a bootable Virus remover.

I still yet again did what it said, and I then received the Blue Screen of death. But it only appeared when I took out the repair CD.

The down side is that my screen would always be bright and never turn off. Then after multiple "repairs" the blue screen went away and then the Startup repair loop came into existence.

Even with the CD it would not go away. Also, my screen is black, but a black to where you think the contrast is on. I can see the window, butthat’s if I angle the screen a certain way.
How can I fix this? Plus, I do not have a restore disk because I have lost it.


Blue screen after rebooting after updating
After installing the latest updates for Windows (the Patch Tuesday updates, not sure of the update numbers), now when I reboot my machine, while it's "Configuring Updates", I get a Blue Screen.

I can't get past "Configuring Updates" to even login. I get the Blue Screen during that process.

A few other tidbits:

I have two firewire hard drives and an ExpressCard plugged into my machine when booting. Should I try unplugging those when booting to see if that helps?

The machine is a MacBook Pro with Windows 7 Home Premium (64 Bit) installed using Boot Camp. I did recently upgrade the Mac partition to Lion and turned on FileVault 2.

What do I need to do to be able to successfully boot back into Windows again?


0x00000050 Blue screen error
Had my new custom built computer for a few days, been getting this blue screen error since day 1, sometimes it doesn't happen for hours, sometimes multiple times within about 15 minutes, but windows does restart fine within seconds at the moment.

My operating system is Windows 7, 64 bit. I don't know if this is a separate problem or not, but I have 8GB ram, and it says on system properties I only have 3.95GB usable.


Windows 7 Black Screen then Blue Screen of Death
I have a computer running Windows 7. Last night the computer was running fine. I get a black screen. To fix the problem I conducted a system restore. After it finished restoring, the computer restarts and everything worked fine.

To make sure if everything was in working order, I restart it again. After the "Starting Windows" screens comes up, I get the Blue Screen of Death.

I can't even read what the error says because the computer just restarts itself. I performed a hardware diagnostics to see if it was a hardware failure but no error was found. I can't even get into safe mode. The SFC.exe will be my next step.


ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP install problem
I've been trying to get my drivers working for like 2 days now (bout 20-30 hours). So i just installed windows 7 and i can't get my graphic card working. Problem is that, if i install just driver from amd home page then i dont even get message by windows that it wants restart... If i do hotfix then after install it asks for restart and after boot logo throws me blue screen and computer asks for system restore. After doing that (5-10 minutes) ... Everything back at start. So if i try to manually install drivers (from device manager, it also asks for restart and same blue screen with system restore). I tryed also to change that .inf file by dl-ing it from here by someone's guide and replaceing with original one (with 9.11 version) but result was again blue screen. I've tryed older drivers also... for example 9.9, and with latest drivers


Win 7 Refuses to Sleep or Hibernate
When purchased a year ago, my new HP desktop computer with Win 7 WOULD sleep or hibernate, based on the configuration settings I set up. When in active mode, the hardware startup button on the computer would have a blue light, but after the set period of inactivity, the startup button would change to an orange glow, indicating sleep or hibernation mode.

I leave my computers on 24/7, except when away on a trip or vacation. This computer is fully updated with all Win 7 updates & security as well as SP1. One morning I went over to my computers only to find the blue light glowing on the Startup button of the Win 7 machine. It was fully active.

I assumed that an overnight Windows (or other) update had activated the computer. I rebooted & waited 30 minutes. The light was still blue. I checked the settings for sleep mode or hibernation & they were as I had set them.

Several months have passed & that computer remains ACTIVE 24/7. I've done a registry cleanup which did not correct the problem. The hard drive spins merrily away & all functions are active.

Fortunately the monitor has an on/off switch so I turn it off manually. Must I now manually shut down my Win 7 unit when I'm done for the day? I'm thinking that some program is interfering with or keeping that computer awake. How do I track the problem?
What do I do now?

Blue screen of death can't boot even in safe mode
Blue screen says critical error then it says system dump. I try to restart in safe mode and it still won't let my hp boot up. I am running vista and don't have a disk. A friend gave me a copy of windows 7.

But I am scared to install it because I have a lot of pictures and videos of my kids when they are babies that I don't have copies of and don't want ro take the chance of loosing them. What can I do to fix my laptop


HP Pavilion dv6 7000 fuzzy screen
About a week ago I noticed my screen was starting get little fuzzy marks on certain colors. mostly blue to start off so I would change my graphics options to make blue not as apparent which fixed it for the most part.

except for the actual problem. Now the problem has worsened to where almost all colors are acting strange and no amount of change to the color would fix. I have hooked it up to another monitor and the fuzziness was gone so I know it isn't a virus or something just wrong with my computer.

I believe it is a loose cable, but I don't really know which one or how how to find it once I have taken out the screws.


Blue screen at shutdown ++
For the second time now, whenever I go to shut down my laptop this blue screen shows up for no more than 2 seconds.so I wasn't able to read everything on it, but I tried to scan it quickly and all I could see was:
"Windows encountered a problem and needs to shut down to prevent damage". Then after that, it goes away and my laptop shuts down normally.

But what is this, and why does it keep showing up?.before turning off my laptop I closed all my programs and everything, nothing was open. Is this something I should be worried about?
I scan my laptop regularly too.I'm just a little bit worried, is there a problem with my laptop?

I don't think I've ever had this before.

Drive C: failing - How to copy OS to a new drive?
After logging in I receive the dreaded "Windows detected a hard disk problem" and as luck would have it, it is the C: drive which contains the operating system. Although I can usethe system, I periodically get the "Windows detected a hard disk problem" message and everything is running real slow.

I have another identical drive D: installed on the computer that contains my user data (already backed up). What can I do to move the operating system to the other drive before the C drive dies entirely.

What I have attempted so far. Using Norton Ghost 15.0 I copied my C: drive to my D: drive using options

Copy My Hard Drive (Copy all existing files, programs, and settings from one hard drive to another)
Check source for file system errors
Check destination for file system errors
Set drive active
Copy MBR

After the copy completed successfully I shut down the computer and moved the SATA cable from the original drive to the new drive. Upon booting, I get the error Boot MGR is missing. Using the original DVD I did a repair and then the system booted to the login screen.

It accepted my password but instead of logging me in normally, it displayed the building profile message. After running for a long time the screen turns to a light blue. In the lower right corner of the screen is displayed
Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not Genuine.
It hangs there with no response other than the mouse is still active. The screen is blank with the exception of the above message.

Colors Completely Baffling
I was/am having issue with my monitor. If I set my colors for [menu] selected items to me bright white text on blue background, it looks fine in the Customization screen.But then, in any screen that is "explorer-connected" -- like explorer.exe itself -- the elected menu items show as black type on blue.

I thought it was my monitor - a Samsung 226BW.

But, I spent yesterday setting up my daughter's Dell Laptop N5010, from bare metal using Windows 7 64-bit, and it now has the same issue.

So, same software, totally different hardware, same result.

What could be causing this? The top pic is how it is supposed to be, and the bottom is how it looks in explorer.exe.


Windows 7 gives me blue screen, then restarts
I have a computer running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 on my desktop system. I just did a clean install back in May of this year and two months into the reinstall - I often get a blue screen and then my computer suddenly restarts.

I didn't copy the entire STOP code but I knew was this: STOP 0x0000000E. I didn't get the rest of the STOP codes.

However, when my computer finally restarted, I was given an error that Windows recovered from a serious error and asked me to submit some information to them, which I did.

Also, here's my additional information that I got from the "windows has recovered from a serious error" dialog box:


Sleep and hibernation: frequently asked questions
Here are answers to some common questions about sleep and hibernation.
What's the difference between sleep, hibernate, and hybrid sleep? Why can't I find the sleep or hibernate options on my computer? How can I prevent my computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating? How can I wake my computer from sleep or hibernation? Why does my computer not go into sleep or hibernation as expected, or why does it wake unexpectedly? I have a device that doesn't function properly after waking up from sleep or hibernate. Will sleep eventually drain my laptop battery? Is my data safe while my computer is asleep?


Hibernate Problem
I hope you're fine.

I have an issue with my computer, every time I click "Hibernate" after some time the computer turns on by it self, I had the same issue before I reinstalled my windows and I fixed it...
