Windows 7: 64 bit pro + Sleep = BSOD

64 bit pro + Sleep = BSOD

Apart from random BSOD, often (but not always) about 10 minutes after starting Windows as in https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...win-7-x64.html but not so frequently

I've found an infallible method.
  1. Close all running programs
  2. Click "Start" select Shutdown > Sleep
  3. Wait till the screen has gone blank (note fans do not switch off)
  4. Hit any key or move the mouse
  5. Instant BSOD followed by complete shutdown within about a second or two. Too quick to read the screen.
I've applied SP1 but it has no effect.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
