    Hi muddy9494

    System Restore would certainly be my first move to return your rig to a point when it last operated o.k.
    A driver issue with your video card might also be worth checking.
    What are the specs. of your machine and have you installed any software & hardware recently?

    Try installing the RC (release candidate) version of the service pack 1:
    Windows Vista Service Pack Download - Softpedia
    MS will be releasing the final version any day now and you can find it already if you look hard enough, I've just gave this link for ease. You can always uninstall this one and install the later version.
    The service pack does deal with problems associated with using Hibernate, good luck.

    update: I've just read that the service pack will be released on Tuesday so it may be worth waiting till then.

    You would be better off to do a fresh install of Vista and then install SP1

    That's my two cents :D

    :) Hi!!!! There is a website address that has alot of useful information. The start-up and repair tool, access/enter motherboards for example: It is listed in the Internet as- Blue screen of death- Set-up and install. Maybe it's to late for this, but wasn't little gizmos like Reg-Cure supposed to fix the blue screen of death ? Isn't it because of memory dumps and registry errors ? Sincerely, Celestra

    Usually but because it's happening when he's using hibernate things are slightly different. Problems due to vista and hibernation have been documented.
