90% of the time, yes, but not always. A couple of times the BSOD occurred after a restart.

Tried again to sleep/wake up and the same thing happened. After shutting down the pc, went to check the BIOS. It says the SATA thingy is disabled. There is an option to set it to AHCI. Would you like me to change it?

I also loaded the optimized default settings and my floppy got installed. Windows loaded normally.

The sleep/wake up procedure went ok this time and here I am, writing this post. I can't say it's 100% fixed, tho, it feels the BSOD appears randomly.

No, do not change the sata mode. If you do, you will not be able to boot. That's why I asked you to check it and set it back to whatever it was now after loading optimized defaults.

See how it goes. If you get more BSODs, upload the BSOD posting instructions again.

Ok, will do. Any ideas how to test for blue screens? Repeating sleep/wake up? Just use the pc the way I usually do?

Just use it as normal. There are quite a few people who just can't use sleep without this happening. I really don't know why unless the components get older and don't work the way they used to. But, we'll see if we can find out what your problem is. When did this start? What hardware or software did you install/change just before this began?

Nothing has been installed. The problems started 5-6 days ago. After shutting down the pc from the PSU, I had really low fps in dota 2. The game has its own console and it was full of "Xaudio2 Error" (which I guess was the reason for the in-game lag). Outside the game - playing a normal mp3 was impossible, the sound was lagging also. I tried to update all drivers and then (I think) the first atikmpag BSOD happened.

After 1 day of struggling to fix the problem - installing older driver versions/without CCC, trying the "expand" fix, scanning etc., the next day I ended up with 4 or 5 times reinstalling the windows (32 bit) without no luck. The last thing that came to my mind was to try W7 64 bit version (with a few casual BSODs) which is definitely a better option rather than not being able to load windows.

The video card is relatively new, about year and a half old. I got it from a friend of mine. Been using it for 3-4 months without any problems.

You have 2 brands of ram installed. That is pretty much a big no-no. How long has it been that way? You have 2 brands of ram at 2 different frequencies. Many motherboards cannot handle that, plus your 1Gb of Nanyo is slower than your 4GB of Kingston. When you mix ram it will run at the slowest speed. Take the Nanyo out and see if it runs any better with only the Kingston in. Is the Kingston a kit, or is it 2 separate models?

Both the video card and the 1gb ram were installed the same day. I'll remove the 1gb in a couple of hours. I didn't understand the second question.

Edit: I just slept/turned off/restarted the pc, no BSOD.
About the RAM - it's a kit.. I think. Speccy says they have the same part number (99U5429-007.A00LF).

Do you still want me to remove the 1gb ram?

Are the Kingston Ram Modules the exact same model number?

Today, after 8-9 hours of sleep, the pc failed to wake up again(no BSOD). Went to check the ram modules. This is what is written on the back of them:

BKMK 1690889
99U5429 - 007.A00LF
3840649 - 0067467
KVR800D2N612G

99U5429 - 007.A00LF
3840649 - 0797806
KVR800D2N612G

Nothing about the mode numbers..

Also, I removed the 1GB module.

If you don't already have it, please download CPUz CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID and install it. Please upload screenshots of the CPU tab, Mainboard tab, Memory and SPD tabs. On the SPD tab, you can select each Dimm slot from a dropdown box in the upper left. Just upload the dim slot screenshots of the ones populated with ram. This will tell you how. Please upload them here. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
