Windows 7: Problems with startup.

At the moment we are trying to get your system to atleast boot to the desktop....

Here is the difference between various modes straight from the horses mouth

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player—the computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.

Hybrid sleep is designed primarily for desktop computers. Hybrid sleep is a combination of sleep and hibernate—it puts any open documents and programs in memory and on your hard disk, and then puts your computer into a low-power state so that you can quickly resume your work. That way, if a power failure occurs, Windows can restore your work from your hard disk. When hybrid sleep is turned on, putting your computer into sleep automatically puts your computer into hybrid sleep. Hybrid sleep is typically turned on by default on desktop computers.


What you have is hybrid sleep.....

For my desktop, all three of the options are available and one thing I made note of after the third time this problem occurred was to turn all of these settings off, as well as any other power saving options Windows had automatically selected. I disabled hibernation, hybrid sleep etc,. etc,. but it still goes right back to it. And upon restarting my computer I found that all the settings I had just saved and double checked, were back to default.

Problem is now, can't even start my computer up without it hanging on nothing responding which is the worst.

BUMP THIS UP.







I went to a pc repair shop and as soon as the dude saw it he said my motherboards capacitors had went out, and that I had 11 total that were blown. Started going on about buying a refurbished computer.

Next step, bought a used computer from someone I know for $45, Windows XP, not all that hot but had 4 RAM Slots,2 DDR1 and the other two were DDR2. So the computer came with a half a gig ram stick that was ddr1. So after I got the computer up and running and doing maintenance on it, I thought damn, I can add my old RAM to this new computer, so I did and put them in the DDR2 slots.Got them in properly, started the computer. HOLY SHIT. My computer, the new one, did exactly what the old one did. Tested both cards,both do the same thing. I took the RAM cards out of the new computer and the computer started just fine and dandy with only the half a meg ram card ddr1.

So my question to you guys, can RAM cause a computer to hang on start-up, black screen on monitor etc,.etc,.

AND. Can getting new RAM possibly fix my problem on my old computer, or could it be the ram slots on my motherboard are bad on my old one?

Have the cap's been replaced ???

The only way to see if the RAM or the slots are the problem is to test it .... since its at the repair store..... get it checked too

We dont have the specs for the second hand mobo... so can't comment on it !!

Agree with centaur78. The old board is toast unless you can replace the blown caps.

As far as the new board is concerned, I don't recall ever hearing of a board that can accomodate two different memory types. Heck, there are boards that can't even tolerate two sticks of the same type if the specs for each don't match each other 'perfectly'.

Need a model number on that 'new' old board...
