Windows 7: bluescreen after sleeping

26 Aug 2010   #11

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

Alcohol 120 % works for me as well.

Windows 7 Professional x64

Keep in mind Alcohol 120% uses SPTD.sys, the same driver Daemon Tools uses. While it may be stable on some machines (just like ZoneAlarm, Norton 2009, ASACPI.sys, and AVG), it is considered a 'high risk' driver.

It is up to you, our job is to get your system running again. Do whatever works for you, but if you get BSODs, remove and SPTD-using program you have.

I changed the setting to not sleep when I close the lid while plugged in, however whenever I do press the sleep button on the start menu and close the lid, the laptop boots up again. Would this be a windows error that needs re installation, or is it a hardware issue? Thanks in advance
