Win 7 Latitude E5410 will not hibernate
Posted on 2011-09-24
I used to be able to hibernate my laptop which would take up to 5 mins. I've no idea what has changed with my system but now it will just never hibernate anymore.
I've tried disabling hibernate and re-enabling from the command prompt. I've tried running a check disk, I've tried unplugging power and battery and holding down power button for a min, and have also tried issuing the hibernate command via the command prompt.
But nothing seems to fix it.
It will just got to a black screen, but not really hibernate. LED's are still lit on my laptop, and I just have to move the mouse real quick and my lock screen instantly comes up.
I did try manually downloading the display adapter driver from Dell for my service tag, but when I try to update the driver to the display adapter device in Device Manager and specify the driver's extracted folder, it just sits there saying "Installing driver" forever.
