Windows 7: My Hibernate done broke!

13 Jul 2018   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
My Hibernate done broke!

So the other day there was a lightning storm in my area, we lost power, and ever since I can't properly put my computer into hibernate.

I normally hibernate my computer every night or when I leave for a couple hours. But now, when it tries to restore, my screen stays black and nothing happens. I don't even see the blue "resuming from hibernation" screen, which now that I think about it sounds like a problem with my motherboard or bios.
If I hold in the power button and force it to reset, and then turn it on, it starts to actually resume from hibernation, but then it hits an error.
I wrote this down from the error screen:

Status: 0xX0000411

File: \hiberfil.sys

I ran a small test of putting it into hibernation shortly after it booted, and in that test I had to shut down the computer because it never displayed anything, but then it restored properly from hibernation. But when I let it sit overnight (you know, when I'm doing it for real and have stuff open) it fails to restore.
