Windows 7: Random crashes when waking from prolonged sleep mode.

22 Jul 2014   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Random crashes when waking from prolonged sleep mode.

I just installed a new motherboard and cpu recently and reinstalled windows. But am having issues when i try to wake from sleep mode randomly. It causes errors of all kinds and makes me hard reset, then says resuming windows and goes to a black screen, then finally resetting again and deleting restoration information and I can boot successfully.

I am unsure why this problem is happening because none of my devices attached to my computer have changed. I tried updating bios already and that didnt work.

Is there a program or something I can use to track down the culprit driver or program so i can reinstall it if its causing issues? It doesnt occur every single time, its like 50% of the time i wake it from sleep it happens.

Amd fx-6300
Asus m5a99fx pro r2.0
Ultra bronze 700w psu
WD caviar black hd
MSI twin frozr 2 6950 hd amd graphics.

I have multiple programs installed i have never used before, such as ai suite 2, and cpuid hardware monitor, also i noticed msi afterburner is showing the former catalyst suite which is 11.5 and i installed 13.12 from amds website.

Anyone have any ideas? I take naps sometimes and having to shut it down just for an hour nap is a pain.
