gfx card stopping hibernation
Posted on 2007-04-03
Just upgraded my gfx card
Onboard is Intel Extreme Graphics
I had ATI Radeon 9250 series 128mb low profile agp card (not vista aero compatible)
I've now installed a NVidia Geforce 6200 series 256mb low profile agp card (now aero works)
Problem is this:
I have XP SP2 (Pro) and Vista Ultimate 32bit dual booted with no probs
But now in both OS' I can't resume from Hibernation, Sleep, etc
In XP - I turn on the PC, after a few secs the monitor turn off then the PC restarts by itself - interesting it doesn't say the resuming windows failed - it just deletes my restoration data automatically and goes to the Vista Boot Menu (of which XP is the default OS)
I Vista, I get the aura effect while resuming is taking place, then i get a blinking dos cursor, then i get two cursors, then 38 all over the screen (not blinking at this point). The monitor turns off and I have to restart the PC. I get the option to try and resume again or delete restoration data.
I uninstalled the ATI card from Device manager is both OS' before changing the card. In Vista, the drivers were installed by windows automatically and I can't install the drivers off the CD.
In XP i installed the drivers off the disc OK.
