    Recurring Problem Coming Out of Sleep/Hibernation


    Hello, guys.

    I have been having a very odd issue lately with my Windows 8 installation.

    Apparently, my PC now randomly decides not to boot properly either from sleep or hibernation. It will go into sleep just fine (though managing to keep it sleeping for more than 5 seconds has been a chore itself), but sometimes it won't be able to come back from sleep properly: it will either black screen on me (very uncommon), or it will keep restarting several times, until either the "Automatic Recovery" pops up, or I manually reset it.

    In all my years working with computers, I haven't seen anything like this :/ Services look fine, running apps also look fine, no virus found on a complete check of all almost 10TB of data...

    Right now, I'm just about ready to drop the whole thing and go back to Windows 7, but I thought I might give this forum a try, it has helped me quite a bit in the past.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    When it comes up with a Black Screen, check to see if there is a Mouse and the ability to ctrl-alt-del into Task Manager. If that is successful, try hitting Windows Key + P and then the Down Arrow, see if it brings the Desktop back. Try that up to 4 times, the 4th to get it back to default.

    It's just a theory I have about the Black Screen of Deth, maybe the system is trying to show on a "Second Screen".

    I'll look through the attachment.

    Ok, I see things like this in your System Event Log:

    Code:
    Event[20]:  Log Name: System
      Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-General
      Date: 2013-02-20T10:10:49.285

      Description:

    I don't like that last part. You may be due for a full CHKDSK, don't do it through the OS, use an Install Disk, from a Command Prompt.

    That is only one of the entries I saw where it said it was moving important files around, this is your REGISTRY hive, there are also other ones like this:

    Code:
    Event[26]:  Log Name: System
      Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-General
      Date: 2013-02-20T10:10:49.501

      Computer: windows-uj49s6b
      Description: 
    The access history in hive \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SAM was cleared updating 54 keys and creating 4 modified pages.
    So it looks like your entire Registry had been re-ordered. That might cause some of these problems. So try a full CHKDSK, all data areas.

    I'll keep the shortcuts handy, just in case. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, though, when I say "black screen", I say "no video output whatsoever", there is no video signal being passed on to my amplifier (both it and the TV behave as if I was in a "no input" situation). I think it might have something to do with the HDMI handshake when coming out of sleep, maybe even having to do with the timing of when each device is powered up (especially the amp), since sometimes I loose sound when I return from sleep, and I have seen multiple instances of my TV appearing as audio output sinks, most of them being "unavailable". HDMI being finicky, probably :P

    I'll try that trick when it happens again, since it actually resets my video output, and it's actually available even from the login screen, it might just do it for me.

    Thanks again, and also for looking over my attachment.

    In that case, that has happened to me, disconnect the HDMI cable from the Computer and plug it back in, see if it resets.

    I use an HDMI router, for 2 HDMI inputs, if you have something like that, that also interferes sometimes,. it prevents the signal from gong back to the TV. So if you have an HDMI selector box, take the Box out of the circuit and plug the HDMI cable straight into the TV.

    Then it should reset the signal, you can unplug it and plug it back into the Selector box.

    I see the following items quoted. The drivers seem to be from 2007, do you know what they are?

    Oh, that I might try, too. Thanks!

    Well, the amp does work as an HDMI router of sorts. Direct connection might be a problem, though. I'll see what I can do.

    Oh, dear... At least one of them (probably all three, because of their names) is from my Silicon Image 2-port SATA controller... That is NOT good news, if that is what's been causing the issues...

    EDIT: Yep, a quick Google Search confirmed it: those are all three Silicon Image driver files.

    I'll try to check if Silicon Image has newer drivers, but that controller (3132), while widely used even today, has been around for a LONG time. And I actually need it, I'm driving 8 drives (1 SDD, 7 HDDs) at once, and my motherboard only has 6 ports available.

    EDIT: OK, found a signed driver from 2009 for Windows 7 x64. It installed without a hitch. It seems to be the most recent driver available, though, as even Windows Update comes up with nothing. Plus, it's the generic one.

    Thanks for the input so far, you guys are a great bunch!

    Yah I knew that was a SATA card the moment I saw it, not a problem, but you should check for new drivers.

    Is it a 4-Port Card? You may wanna check it, those SiL cards go bad after a few years. The Drives fall off the Bus. And the 4-Port cards are usually made to only host a Raid Array.

    Actually, if any of your System drives are on the SATA Card, you may wanna swap it out to a SATA port on the MB, because of the same problem. After about 2 years, they just start dropping the drives.

    No, actually it's a PCIe 1x-to-2x SATA card. Bought about 18 months ago (wow, had no clue it had been so long ago).

    I have had no problems with drives falling off the bus, or data stream errors for that matter. Though I'm using the non-RAID BIOS (which, albeit not being the standard configuration, is a valid one from SiI itself), since I have no use for it, I have Drive Bender managing drive duplication.

    Let's see if anything else more problematic comes up. Especially because this is not an old thing, these problems have only started to happen starting a week ago or so.

    Well, the hardware itself is 2 years old, maybe it is glitching.

    The Chips on the card may just be starting to wear out, try adding a fan to them. But usually 18 months is the lifespan of those cards, regardless of PCI or PCI-E interface.

    Well, if that's the case, I'll be glad the standard warranty for consumer products is 2 years in Portugal... Though it's still a lousy timing, and the cards should really be built to last a lot longer, even if used for 8+ hours a day (which was usually for me).
