Windows 7: BSOD on hibernate startup

BSOD on hibernate startup

Hi, when my computer comes out from hibernate (whether I put it into hibernate or the OS hibernates due to low battery) I get a blue screen of death. It then keeps trying to restart and I keep getting the BSOD. If I use safe mode with networking it starts up fine. Alternatively if I hold down the power button until it turns off completely and then boot it back up it works fine.

It is a Lenovo Thinkpad w530. I've attached the log files. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance!

Mark

Hi markelshark.

The bugcheck codes are all different. 0x7F, 0x3B, 0x50 .....

The varying bugchecks in a short span of time indicates to some sort of hardware failure, specially memory.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the results.

Thanks for your response. I think I found the solution for any future users stumbling across this.

1) In my BIOS "Intel Rapid Start" was enabled. According to Intel this is only for SSDs, which I do not have. I disabled this option.

2) I had a hibernation partition of 8GB. According to Microsoft you need a hibernation partition at least the size of your RAM. I have 16GB of ram. I deleted the hibernation partition altogether as it should default back to the system drive (C: for me) anyway.

3) If that wasn't enough, Lenovo also had some custom "fast start" technology running, called RapidBoot. It has been known to cause issues and is no longer available for download:
Potential issues caused by RapidBoot Shield software

After fixing these three things my computer seems to be hibernating just fine. If the issue starts up again I will check back.

P.S. I ran memcheck per your suggestion just to be certain and no errors were detected.
