Windows 7: Laptop Won't Recover From Hibernate in 7

23 Jul 2009   #11


Ummm, this is in reference to a Dell laptop.

@marchmadness - more than likely the Graphics card overheated b/c it was on and *didn't* go into sleep fast enough. As for warranty info, check on the website for numbers....

windows 7

Had the same problem on Dell xps1530 with Win7 pro 64bit. Laptop has the power button, and special button called "dell media direct" button which ment to start in some alternative boot mode(ref dell for details). Computer sucsessfuly woke from mentioned above hybernation after few attempts pressing it. It went to Initial dell media direct instalation screen, which later alowed full system wake up.
Provided dell media direct is of correct version and still exists on hdd, is operational, button not remapped to other app, there is chance of easy recovery.
Unfortunetly still looking for the way to wake up system from hybernation when dell media centre is not present.
Cd was accepted, but not ejected-stuck (cant boot from it - bios option - cd not bootable), same with usb, lan.
System reboot by pressing power button for 10s - no luck.
Lid close/open, ram replacement (as some suggest in different post) no luck.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit.

Probably not much help from me, but... When you power on your laptop, and once it attempt's to boot into Windows, does it say "Resuming Windows"?
