my RAM is new and ive still yet to test it.
I read in someone elses post where reseating the ram worked so i tried it and only put 1 of 2 sticks back in and it worked. but when i put the 2nd one back the problem was back, i mucked around with different configurations and no luck

Now in my manual it said, and also on ram specific websites. it said i could use 2 sticks with different speeds (approx 100mhz difference in my case) and it would just default to the slower of the 2

Which worked fine in all areas except recovering from sleep mode, the computer itself seemed to wake but not the monitor & had to hard boot.

In the end Two identical ram modules was the solution in my case no problems since

But please as i said in my earlier post this problem can be caused by so many different things from one computer to the next this is only what worked for me and would encourage to research the link i supplied earlier

Windows 7 Professional x64
Same here

I've been up on Win7 x64 for a couple of weeks. My original Viewsonic monitor had no problem going to powersave and back. Now my new Hanns-G 28" monitor will go to powersave when expected, but I have to cycle its power manually to wake it up after Win7 resumes from standby.

Any potential fixes out there? The RAM "fix" seems like a red herring....
