Okay, well thanks for coming back to post your findings anyway. Thread Starters returning with results, good or bad, is what makes SevenForums a helpful resource and keeps it alive.

Glad to hear the issue is fixed, at least for now!

It didn't fix it. This morning when I tried resuming, I got the black screen. I turned it off and on again to see if I could see my desktop for a few seconds as the other guy, but I couldn't. It just was the black screen. Back to square one?

Still black screen after sleep.


That hotfix did not fix my problem. Today it happened again, and recently in the past few days. It's really getting annoying. For some reason, I checked my minidump folder, and there was a dump from today. I'll upload it, but I don't remember the BSOD triggering. Truth be told, I wasn't watching it.

It happened again this morning. Does anyone, anywhere have any idea of what it might be caused by?

AHA!!! Well look at what's raised it's ugly head!:
ASACPI.sys   Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005
This driver is a known BSOD cause in Win7 (and Vista at times).
Please visit the Asus website and download a fresh copy of the ATK0110 ACPI Utility (it's in the Utilities download section for your mobo). Install it and check to make sure that the new date is 2009 or 2010.

Then monitor for further BSOD's.

Also, you have an Intel Pro/1000 network adapter dated from 2008 - please update that. Here is a link to the Intel Pro/1000 PT network adapter (for 64 bit Win7): ┬ Network Adapter Driver for Windows 7*

Here's a link for the Intel Pro/1000 GT network adapter (for 64 bit Win7):  Intel® Ethernet Adapter "In Box" Drivers for Windows 7* & Windows Server 2008 R2* (Bad link)

FWIW - there's enough different errors here to wonder if you have a hardware problem (although issues with the ASACPI.sys driver can look like hardware problems).
What is the make and model of your motherboard?
See if you can borrow a video card to replace yours and test with (to rule out a problem with your card).

BTW - I have an Asus P6T Deluxe board that just will not hibernate without a BSOD. I've tried everything with it and finally just gave up on sleep/hibernation (but I get different STOP errors).

Summary of the BSOD:
Built by: 7600.16539.amd64fre.win7_gdr.100226-1909
Debug session time: Sun May 30 15:15:41.737 2010 (GMT-4)
System Uptime: 1 days 4:30:42.861
BugCheck 9F, {3, fffffa8006304680, fffff80000b9c518, fffffa8006622010}
Probably caused by : atapi.sys

I downloaded the utility and ran the application within it. I've never had to download a utility before, but I'm pretty positive I did everything correctly. I have an Asus P6T SE mobo. I don't exactly know from whom I could borrow a video card, but I'll look around. Would flashing the BIOS do anything? Also, for my network adapter, I can't find any drivers on the Intel site.

To check, go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and check the date on the ASACPI.sys file/driver that you'll find there. If it's something later than 2005 you've done it correctly!

Here's a link to the drivers for your network card: ┬ Network Adapter Driver for Windows 7* (the link that I first gave didn't work). Download and install them.

A BIOS flash might help - but they are dangerous to do. Let's see if the ASACPI.sys driver and the network driver fix things first.

5/14/2009. Also, for the Intel network card, whenever I try to install, the installer states that I don't have an Intel network adapter.

OK, so the ASACPI.sys file is updated.
Are you having any further BSOD's?

As for the network driver, please do the following:
Obtaining Hardware ID's to help Identify Hardware
- Go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Expand the Network Adapters category by clicking on the + sign to the left of it
- Right click on the network adapter (if there's more than one, do this for all of them) and select Properties.
- Then select the Details tab.
- In the dropdown box, select "Hardware IDs" - and match the info to one of the following descriptions:
- - If the Hardware IDs description contains VEN_ and DEV_, then let us know the 4 characters immediately after the VEN_ and the 4 characters immediately after the DEV_
this is a PCI device and we'll look up the information at
- - If the Hardware IDs description contains VID_ and PID_, then let us know the 4 characters immediately after the VID_ and the 4 characters immediately after the PID_
this is a USB device and we'll look up the information at
If you don't have those items in the Hardware IDs description, copy down the entire string of the first entry and include that with your next post.

VEN is 8086 and DEV 107C.

I can't exactly stay whether or not it's stopped the BSOD's. I need about a week of use. I didn't exactly know how it happened after sleep and why only sometimes after sleep, so I can't say yet.
