Please try the following:

  • Search msconfig and open it
    • Go to the tab services

See if the problem persist, if the problem does not persist enable in the startup tab in taskmanager 1 item and in the services tab in msconfig also 1 service, reboot and see if the problem persist. Keep doing this until you find the culprit or there is nothing left.

I will try this, however while I'm working on it there are never any issues. It only has issues coming out of sleep. I'll try turning sleep back on at like 2-3 minutes and see I can replicate the non waking issue. Then will do safe mode and so on. Thanks. Be back soon.

How much time is there between coming from sleep and a BSOD?

OK let me clarify, it doesn't blue screen anymore at all that Ive seen.

What happens is that on trying to wake the pc, which again I have all sleep and hibernation turned off, the PC will freeze for everything except for the mouse moving around. You can hit ctrl-alt-delete and the task manager may come up but nothing will quit or change on the screen.

The only way to recover is to hard reboot, and then when it comes back on it sometimes takes 1-3 reboots before everything comes back normal. i.e. desktops, all 4 screens, etc.

Im tempted to do a new clean install at this point when I have a couple of days. But its not going to be an easy task.

Thanks again for your help here
