Why does my HP Pavillion dv6000 go into hibernation each time I boot? 

by on November 9, 2010

Q: My HP Pavillion dv6000 with Windows XP Media Center and HP QuickPlay has a bootup problem. After QuickPlay loads and I select the Windows icon, Windows goes into hibernation. I have rebooted several times and tried different keys to bypass that but nothing works. Even used the ‘restore disk’ (F11) function twice and still same issue. Occasionally I am able to get past it by pressing keys but nothing that works consistently. When it does go into Windows okay, I am able to update to SP3, load software etc. and even ‘restart’ but it I shutdown and bootup later it keeps going into the hibernation loop.


How come I cannot get my HP NC6400 laptop to hibernate? 

by on October 10, 2009

Q: I’m trying to hibernate my laptop, an HP NC6400. I did it in the past but the IT department of my company tried to repair something else and since then I can’t hibernate the computer. It seems like they deleted a driver.

The error message is “The device driver for the ST980811AS device is preventing the machine from entering hibernation. You may need to update this driver.”

I couldn’t find neither the solution nor the driver on Google.


How come my computer keeps going into hibernate mode and I cannot stop it? 

by on August 10, 2009

Q: Yesterday when I logged onto my computer it kept going into hibernation randomly and I couldn’t start it back up. So I restarted my computer and logged back on. About 10-15 min later it did it again, so I restarted again and logged back on. I went to go to control panel to turn hibernation mode off and it froze and I kept trying to change the setting but it would freeze on me. I decided to do a System Recovery (because I thought I had a virus) and things were going fine but in the middle of it it went into hibernation mode an I couldn’t get out of it. I waited about 15 min for it to turn back on, but it didn’t so I was forced to restart it. When I logged back on Windows wouldn’t come up and this Error message came up

Windows could not start because of an error in the software.
Please report this problem as: load needed DLLs for kernel.
Please contact your support person to report this problem.

After I read this I pressed enter and my computer restarted and gave me this message. I tried to do another system recovery but it went into hibernation mode after 10-15 min into the process.

Is there a way to turn off hibernation mode, w/o being able to go to the control panel? and is there any other way I can fix this problem?

I’m using Windows XP, and my computer didn’t come with a recovery disk. (the recovery option come sup at start up).
