Windows 7: Lockup after resuming from sleep/hibernation Dell Dimension 3000

Lockup after resuming from sleep/hibernation Dell Dimension 3000


I have a Dell Dimension 3000 running 32-bit Windows 7. It started locking up either going into sleep, waking up from sleep, or waking from hibernation. It goes away if I pull out the Geforce GT 610 PCI card that I have installed. Putting the card into another system works fine, and sleep works normally. I am wondering if the motherboard is at fault here as I have just had the graphics card replaced by ZOTAC.

I have unhooked and disabled the floppy and two optical drives, but the problems continue. I also tried to boot Ubuntu live, but it would not start, until the graphics card was pulled.

Windows has also been reinstalled.

Any ideas?

From personal Experience, having one of the best PCI cards you can get, (or close to it anyways), the max ram for the system, (2 GHz), And an 80GB hard drive, you figure you could get by with it right, since the minimum graphics requirement is 512mb Video Card, and 1 GB RAM? WRONG!!! Unless you...

Dell Dimension 3000
Does anyone know much about the Dell Dimension 3000? I have run into a problem for about a month now of it restarting itself no matter what OS it is running. It is obviously a hardware problem and not a Windows problem so please don't try to troubleshoot it. Any help will be appreciated. :D Ben
