Default Can't figure this out. System hangs on 2nd hibernation, or standby. Win XP Home SP2

Recently, my computer has started hanging on the 2nd hibernation, or
2nd standby. I can't figure it out.

I haven't installed any new software. The last things I can remember
right before this started occuring was that the September version of
the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool critical update download
was loaded and run on the computer. The other thing is that I've not
been leaving MSN Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger running down in
the system tray anymore because I just haven't been using the programs
lately. But those are the only things that I can remember.

From what I understand, the Malicious Software Removal Tool is never

installed, but just run, so you can't uninstall it. And I've tried
running both MSN Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger down in the tray,
but I still get the hang up on the 2nd hibernation, or standby. Both
hibernation and standby where working just fine not too long ago.

Does this sound like some hardware going out? But would it be so
timely if it were hardware? Wouldn't it happen on the first
hibernation, or standby, then?

Thanks.

Hi Ryan,

These issues are usually driver-related. A recently updated one may be the
cause, or possibly an existing one has become corrupted. I would start by
reinstalling the video drivers, and actually would recommend that you check
for the most recent ones from the manufacturer (do not rely on Windows
Update for this). More on this can be found he

Okay. Thanks Rick. I will try running through the drivers and
reinstalling the most recent ones from the manufacturer. Do drivers
often just go corrupt? And there's no other way of determining such a
thing, except by the problems that they may cause, huh? Thanks. I'll
read your page too and I'll let you know if it get resolved. Thanks
again.
