Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bits SP1: Problems after applying Windows Service Pack 1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • System Specs: Self-assembled PC

    a. ASUS SabreTooth X58 BIOS version 0802

    b. Intel i7 950 3.06 GHz

    c. 6GB DDR3 RAM

    d. XFX GTX260 896MB RAM

    e. 500GB(Boot Disk) / 1TB, both WD HDD

    f. CORSAIR HX850 / +12V(70A)

    Previously running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bits, did not encounter problem.

    After installing Windows Service Pack 1, I noticed the following issues:

    1. Power saving, putting system to sleep, causes system to shutdown adnormally.

    2. After disabling power saving(Putting system to sleep), digital audio out not functional after a short period of "not using the PC". Maybe after display power saving kicks in.

    3. iTune unable to update my iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4 iOS.

    Uninstalling Windows SP 1 resolves all these issues.

    I also have Sony notebooks(Z45GD and S117GG) all updated to Windows SP1 and all cannot update iOS for my iPhone/iPod after that.  Did not encounter power and audio issues.

  • Disable the hybrid sleep, this solves the sleep issue for several users.

    Which soundchip do you use? Have you reinstalled the latest driver?

    For iTunes issues, contact the Apple Support.
