Windows 7: Dell D630 hibernates without notification

Dell D630 hibernates without notification

Dear All,

I have quite a big problem with my Windows Seven installation. I am using it on my Dell D630, which had XP and Vista previously. The thing is when I am on battery the battery meter on the taskbar does not display the correct value sometimes, and my laptop even hibernates without any notification or alert. The weird stuff is when I click on the battery meter it displays the correct values. When it is happening, Seven does not even recognize when I plug the charger in.
Any ideas what could be wrong? System specs: Dell D630 laptop, Core2 Duo 2GHz CPU, 2.5GB DDR2 533, 160GB HDD, Intel 965 chipset with GMA X3100. All drivers are the Seven default ones except for GMA X 3100, because the prerelease driver produces the infamous taskbar flickering error so I rolled back to version 7.x (theoretically for Vista).

Any help would be much appreciated,

What version of Windows 7? And have you checked power settings in the BIOS?

Hi there,

I am using the RC (build 7100). Though I'm not sure which power settings you mean, I would say they should be OK, because with XP and Vista the issue never occured and I did not change anything in the BIOS since installed Seven.
