When I hibernate my PC it works, however when I power the PC back on I get a blank screen and it will not resume hibernationas its suppose to. After that I have to perform an improper shutdown with the power button (reset wont work)and then the PC boots and resumes from hibernation. Stanbye also does not seem to work right either. Moving the mouse or keyboard doesnt bring it out of stanbye only the power button. Thank you for any suggestions. This question is important to me but I only have 215 points so there you have it.

also... It sounds like a hard ware issue, maybe the system board.....Also not all card will return from a power down state....and as When this happens the reset switch is not working, so strong Feelings that system board is going, but would check all settings In control panel and in the BIOS.  Could also be driver problem.
Also, check for all drivers ensuring that all system board drivers are updated and all devices are compatible with the system board.

You also may want to check AMDs website for compatibility as well...

pratigan, URLs of microsoft support search lists do not work pasted like that, they just bring up your last search so if you check the URL you posted you might see something useful but when I follow that link it brings up a list of "duplicate netbios name" solutions. Also it stretches the thread making it almost unreadable. You have to paste the actual URLs of the technet document you are refering to.

When I click on the link I provided, it brings me to a complete XP hibernation problem list.  In this list are multiple references to this exact problem and proposed resolutions.

Locate the file Hiberfil.sys file ( It's hidden ) and delete it. Then reboot the system and see if hiberation works.

Hiberfil.sys is the file used for hibernation.

kiranghag I am using Bootvis. One more thing I should add that could be helpful, is that I swapped motherboards cause my Abit Nf7-s had compatibility issues with dual ddr ram, therefore I exchanged it for the Asus board and it solved that major problem. I did nothing to my hard drive because it booted up and seemed to work fine with this board. I honestly thought I was going to have to start over since drives seem to marry themselves to certain MB's. Pratigan what were you referring to, as far as settings in the control panel? I am pretty sure that all my drivers are installed properly, thats not to difficult to do. Chris could you elaborate on your recommendation before I delete this file, because it doesnt make sense to me to delete a file that enables hibernation to work. Thanks for all your comments, I have tried out most all of them.

Well guys I discovered the problem on my own. For the hell of it I decided to change everything to default in my bios and low and behold it was my overclocking. I had my cpu running at 382mhz FSB. Not a big deal considering I ran sisoft sandra 2003 pro burn in wizard, and my system was running rock solid, and running like a raped ape. Anyway I will find a way around this obstacle. Thanks again for trying.

I believe that overclocking was on the list of possible hibernation problems within the link I sent you.  You should also double check that link for future reference.  Possible bookmark it.
Good Luck !!

pratigan, I appreciate your efforts but overclocking is not on that list from what I could see. Microsoft Knowledge base is one of the first places I go when I have a problem with my operating system though its always possible to miss something. Thanks again for trying so diligently.

Noland, since you found the answer yourself you can ask www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ to refund the points so you can ask a different question.

pratigan, it is simply the first 25 items from technet with xp and hibernate in the search string. "type xp hybernate into Microsofts database" means the same and is shorter and doesn't stretch the thread. You could equally have posted http://support.microsoft.com/search/default.aspx?Catalog=LCID%3D1033%26CDID%3DEN-US-KB%26PRODLISTSRC%3DON&Product=&KeywordType=&Titles=false&numDays=&maxResults=250&withinResults=&Queryl=XP+hibernation&Query=XP+hibernation&QuerySource=gsfxSearch_Query which is the same list but 150 (the max) items returned. What was the relevance of the Korean only article which was the first one you listed?

The reason I got articles about netbios was that I had another window open with that string in it but I still object to posting the raw URL returned from a search tool, the list will probably be in a different order and have different items in it tomorrow.
