Windows 7: Standby Wakeup Issue

Standby Wakeup Issue

Hi, I am having a problem regarding waking up from standby mode, after going to standby I have to press a key to wake up either from my mouse or keyboard...sometimes when I press a button to wake up my computer will not wake:? It will switch on and the light will go from blue (on) to orange (standby) about 4-6 times and then it will stay on orange (standby) and I will not get anything on the screen and have to force shutdown by holding the power button:/ When I restart it will say resuming Windows (I do not go into hybernate mode tho) and take a little time to load me back to the loggin screen. This has been happening since I have upgraded my RAM by installing 2GB more into my system... I had also upgraded my graphics card but did not have any problems...I have this problem more if I have my USB TV Tuner card pluged in so I tend to have it unplugged most of the time:/ I am thinking could it be my PSU? I have a 300W standard and having 4 RAM modules and a graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 4650) plus fans etc... I can play games like AVP and GTA IV with no problems so could it be power drain:? NOTE: The first time I had a BSoD when waking up nbut have not had it since.

Thanks in advanced for the help

It is more than likely down to your PSU. According to AMD, the ATI Radeon HD 4600 series of graphics cards requires a PSU rated at a minimum of 400W.

What graphics card did you have originally? If you also have on-board graphics, try using that to see if the problem goes away.
