    Windows 8 crashes on wake up from sleep


    Installed Windows 8 about a week ago - it worked fine for a few days but now crashes/restarts upon wake up from sleep. There is a 'Kernel Power 41' in the Event Viewer log. Have attached the Diagnostic Tool output file for reference. Really appreciate the help.

    1. Download and update AMD Catalyst for your ati radeon hd 5570. The latest version is 1/23/2013, yours is dated 12/19/2012
    2. Temporary uninstall AVG anti virus completely

    Thank you - I installed the AMD Catalyst drivers last week (version 13-1) so I think it is up to date. Will see if disabling AVG helps.
