Windows 7: BSOD when waking from sleep mode 0x80041003

17 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I changed the power settings so the SSD never shuts down, and hibernate is already disabled. I usually just shut it down since we don't use the computer that often, and I would think that would be ok. HDD OS install seems to be my last straw, unless I want to go through trying to install or perform a repair install back on the SSD. Thanks for taking a look.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I was a little reluctant to mark it as solved, but the computer seems to be working well at this point. I will try to summarize what I have done in the past week, in no particular order as I can't quite remember at this time.

-Unhooked and reattached all cables leading to the SSD, swapped out the SATA cable for another, and plugged it into the second SATA 3 port on my board: I don't think any of this really helped, but it helped eliminate low hanging fruit.
-Removed Norton Antivirus that I had installed from my ISP. Had to wrestle with a few of the drivers, but it's gone. Installed MSE and the two antivirus programs listed above.
-Updated all of the drivers, and went to Realtek for the LAN and audio drivers as apposed to using the ones from ASRock. I did not upgrade the BIOS on my board as I read the newest version, which is optimized for Win 8, causes slow boots for Win 7. It was recommended by ASRock tech support, so I suppose I can do it and revert back if necessary.
-Disabled hibernate, which I wasn't using anyway.
-stopped the verify drivers function as it didn't seem to help.
-Ran memtest for 12 passes with both sticks of memory. I was wondering if I shouldn't do one at a time in case one good stick was masking one bad stick, but I didn't get any errors. No drives were hooked up during test.
-Ensured the SSD firmware was up to date.
-Scoured the internet for info from Intel boards, to Microsoft, Sevenforums and google in general.
I still might perform the prime95 stress test, but it appears I will not need to test this issue by installing the OS on an HDD.

As my issue first showed up when waking the computer from sleep, I changed the power settings for the SSD to never power down when the computer sleeps. I wonder if this will also apply to the two HDDs that I am going to reconnect, or if you can set them all individually. Anyway, I think this was the cure. Last night I discovered a page full of tips for SSD users with Windows 7 on Tomshardware, and that was listed as one of the things to change, as well as disabling hibernate. If you think about it, it makes complete sense. SSDs help your system start up so fast that it makes it less of an issue to shut down the computer at night, or whenever you will be leaving it for long periods of time, so why do you need it to sleep in the first place? On the other hand, it should be able to function with your system regardless of your power settings, and it seems that sleep would be important in a laptop???? Anyway, it seems to be stable at this point (knock on wood), and I like the drive a little more now. I hope this can help others out there, and I really appreciate the two experts that took the time to read my post and offer suggestions. I never would have arrived at the solution I did. Even though it cost me a lot of time, I'm glad it didn't cost me a new SSD as I was ready to write this one off.
