Windows 7: Sluggish Everything After Resume

25 Oct 2009   #21


I decided to disable the auto login feature (which was enabled) and that made the machine unusable, it accepts the password but never logs on...

Wow, it just got worse (or maybe I didn't think the whole thing through), I tried to reboot the machine running Windows 7 from a remote location and it never came back... I am guessing that the screen probably says "Windows 7 is shutting down". So far my experience with Windows 7 has been pretty negative, reliability is not one of the qualities I would highlight.

I think I solved the problem!

I reinstalled Windows 7 as an upgrade over the previous installation. I had to reinstall a few programs but the computer has been stable for the last 24 hours.

Let's hope it stays like that, but would also like to know what caused it..

False alarm, it is back... It took longer to start the malfunctioning though, about 48 hours.

Hi Bowzee.

Have you manage to fix this issue...?

have you check event viewer for possible service failures, eventviewer on Windows 7 is very comprehensive.

How is your PC paging if at all with the amount of RAM you have, it may just be a pagefile increasing in size, check the actual pagefile.sys if you haven't switched this off.

Are you just soak testing for a period of time beofre the faults rears its head or are you using applications ? if so what applications ? it maybe possible that an application was badly written and causing memory leaks.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hello all

I had this problem and it turned out to be my Wireless Nic Drivers (Atheros) that used 100% CPU when the machine came out of Sleep / Hibernation.

Disabling the Wireless Nic then re-enabling it fixed the issue until the next time the machine went to sleep.

The problem was fixed by installing the latest Atheros Drivers.

Hope this helps.

Hi engin33r,

This problem seems to be something that gets worse as you are using the computer, resembling an analog instead of digital behavior, and your idea relating it to the paging makes a lot of sense.

I decided to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch. After I did this the problem happened only once and the system is far more stable now. I did have this device called EasyCAP, version 2.1C, installed on the system, which is a USB video-capture device and that, after the reinstall, was (by observation) causing BSODs about three times a day until I removed it completely from the system. It does not have approved divers and therefore it does give you the warning about this when you install it. I was using this before the reinstall, so I am thinking that this device alone might have been the problem all along. But I am still observing and will post.

Thanks, bowzee

Definitely not the EasyCap thing, I started to get it constantly again, and I just reinstalled the whole thing... What a bummer...

Hi everyone,

I think I found the offending program, it seems to be AVG Free version 9. I reinstalled my machine about 5 times and went installing stuff each time until I got the problem. In one of my tests everything was ok, then I installed AVG, the problem happened, then I uninstalled it and the problem stopped happening. Only because of the mystic nature of computers I am not saying that I am 100% sure. I have a Gigabyte P35C-DS3R motherboard and this happened with barely anything installed, absolutely no additional drivers to those installed by default by the installer.
