Windows 7: Crash on startup with lid closed?

Crash on startup with lid closed?

I have a laptop, an HP-Mini 210-1084NR.
I have a plan set to send the computer into hibernation when the lid is closed, and it works fine.

However, if I turn on the computer and leave the lid shut, windows freezes. The computer still runs, doesn't go into hibernation, and I can't turn off wireless/none of the buttons work.
However, I can still access the computer's disk via my homegroup from another computer, but the laptop is physically unresponsive to anything except a hard shutdown by holding the power button for five seconds.

When I reboot the laptop, I get the option telling me windows has failed to start and to run the startup repair.. I did so, and did the system restore it told me to do. But I still have the same problem.

However, if I log into windows, then close the lid, it will go into hibernation. Then, if I turn it back on it'll stay on until I log back in..

Try updating your drivers from the HP support website (just a guess on my part).
Otherwise, just avoid turning it on until you've opened the lid.

If it's still under warranty, I'd suggest making HP fix it.

I would rather not go to HP; there was an issue making the screen display bad blacks. HP didn't know what was wroung, but I figured out that the graphical brightness was set down. I don't think HP knows what it is doing with their machines anyway.

Hey, guys. Sorry if this is a repeat of an older post, but I couldn't find one that fit this scenario. I have had Windows 7 for about 4 months and everything was going swimmingly. The only problem with it was that my Hauppauge TV Tuner card would always show pixelated, lagged live TV. After...
