Windows 7: BSOD sleep mode Windows 7 HDD, no problem with new Windows 8 SSD tho

BSOD sleep mode Windows 7 HDD [Solved?]

I just installed a new HP monitor and a new crucial SSD with Windows 8 so those recent driver installs may be related

With my Windows 7 HDD, when I recover from sleep mode I'm given a BSOD with a message about intelppm.sys file and stop error 0x0000007E. I tried renaming the intelppm.sys file to intelppm.bak but it didn't seem to resolve the issue

My other recent installations involve Dropbox, nvidia driver updates, new itunes, firefox update and uplay.

If it's worth noting, my Windows 8 SSD installation has no problem with sleep mode. Though I must have the settings different because with W7 the sleep mode recovers from mouse and keyboard, the W8 only recovers if I hit the power button.


edit: ok the new gigabyte bios firmware has windows 8 support it seems, I upgraded and sleep mode seems to work fine now..

Have you tried updating and see if it stops the BSOD?
Also check if enabling/disabling selective suspense helps:Update the firmware for the SSD.
