Windows 7: Intermittent but frequent crash coming out of standby

The connection seemed OK, but I reseated it just in case. The computer did not crash out of standby this morning. I'll continue to monitor. Thanks.

You're welcome. Let us know after a few days how things have been going with the sleep cycles.

So far so good. No crashes yet. I would never have believed it, but it looks like this loose connection may have been the culprit. I will report again if anything changes. Thank you so much...you are a life (or computer) saver.

Unfortunately, it crashed again today Again with the BIOS screen "failed hard drive 0" message and the half black (actually dark blue) / half white screen on attempted reboot. What next?

I am wondering if the connection itself is good... Odd that the hard drive tests pass, but you still end up with hard disk type errors. See if Western Digital's Data Lifeguard tests yield any new information: WD Support / Downloads / WD Scorpio & AV-25 / WD Scorpio Blue

I haven't run these tests yet but thought I'd report that it crashed again when I got home. This time the blue screen (which is very hard to read because of the double screen) blamed partmgr.sys.

That is the Windows partition manager driver. That definitely is still pointing to the hard disk... Whether it is the hard disk itself or a data issue is difficult to say. At some point, you may consider the following steps:

I didn't explicitly state this before, but I have no Lenovo software on this machine. I wiped the WinXP recovery partition when I installed Win7. My only choice would be a Win7 reinstall. Frankly I would probably elect to buy a new laptop before doing that, and/or struggle along until Win8 comes along. It takes weeks to get a new (or reinstalled) machine set up and I don't think I want to do that on a five year old computer.

PS, the drive passed the quick test OK (of course). I may or may not run the extended test. I seriously doubt it will turn anything up.

Your choice. We do have some other options:

Repair Install

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

The second link includes steps to get installation media, so it may help with the repair install. You should backup important system files and gather any program/Windows license keys prior to doing either step.
