    Windows 8

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I have deleted Windows 8 Pro and replaced it with Windows 7 Ultimate. Now the laptop can resume from both hibernation and sleep smoothly.

    I thinks Windows 8 is not compatible with Acer Aspire 5050. This model is 6 years old
    Although Windows 8 is clean-installed on this model and there is no any 3rd-party driver, but it can't resume from hibernation.

    No, it may be compatible else you never would have gotten it installed. There is something with your Power hardware that is incompatible, or you didn't have a sufficient AHCI driver.

    In your system BIOS, you need to set S3 as the resume option - You may have had S1.

    You can try Windows 8 again Later, make sure you download all of the right Power Driver Software the system - Windows 7 drivers can work if you install them manually, I've done it. But before you do, sheck that S1 or S3 power resume status, set it to S3, because I'll bet you had it set for S1. I just didn't think of this in time, I eventually would have checked it if I had the same problem. Also, some old MBs have a selection for MPS versions, there are 1.1 and 1.4 - You need to be running 1.4 for XP through 8.

    There is no power management and MPS setting in BIOS, but "powercfg /a" says that the laptop does support S3. I have already told about it in post #3.

    Windows 7 doesn't use any 3rd party driver but it can resume from hibernation. Windows 8 also didn't use any 3rd party driver like Windows 7 but Windows 8 can't resume from hibernation. Both Windows are still fresh from the installation, so what causes the difference?

    If I shut down fully Windows 8 with "Fast Startup" disabled, then turn the laptop on again, I can't press F2 to enter BIOS. But after restarting Windows 8 manually, I can press F2 to enter BIOS. In the other words, I can't enter BIOS on the first boot but I can do on the next boot. Is this related to the resuming problem?

    I will try to install Windows 8 again later into a different partition of harddisk if there is a solution for this problem

    This is a screenshot of BIOS of Acer Aspire 5050. There is no power management or MPS setting or other advanced setting here, just 5 main menus: Information, Main, Security, Boot and Exit.
