Windows 7: Wake up

Wake up

Each time I wake my PC (Windows 7), it relist's all my connected hardware, HDD's, jump drives, etc. (shows pane asking what I want to do with the drive).
Is there any way to stop this?
Thanks
Bret

Hi! N2Abyss, welcome to 7F

Sounds like it is rebooting when it wakes. Can you look into the BIOS when it starts to see if there is a setting there?

Also check the event viewer logs to see if there might be an error associated when this happens.

Anak, I have no idea what I'm looking at here, but in the "event viewer" I see the following -
2 - Print Service Errors
1- HAL Error
1- Service Control Manager Error
I'll have a look around the bios the next time I boot, What am I looking for?
Thanks
Bret

N2, what you have showed me there is enough to start on. Can you do a Startup Repair from the Windows 7 CD?


N2 my apologies, I failed to show you help on how to do a startup repair:

I will try that after the Holidays, I'm a little leery of that tho, I just got this machine reformatted and all programs reloaded! It runs fine with the exception of little things like the problem described above.
What exactly will a "StartUp Repair" do?
Thanks

Reformatted before? that may be some of your problem where it may not have been a clean install.

If you go up to my link on startup repair it will tell you what it will or will not do.
