BSOD Numerous Times.


Senior Member
I have experienced several BSOD since working with Win 7 - many more than with years of using XP.
My online reading suggested that Hibernate was to blame - I only had the problem after restarting from hibernate and had to ditch the recovery file to get the machine to restart.

So I disabled Hibernate from the Command Prompt and used Sleep instead. Fine for a few days and then another unexplained reboot yesterday coming out of sleep.

There's a minidump file but I have managed to get no sense from that.

Event Viewer says Source - Kernel-Power "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly"

I have read a related post here but it gets complicated and I thought a new thread was due.

I have re-installed various drivers from the PC manufacturer.

zip attached for most recent BSOD - .dmp file.

System info .txt file also attached.
