After sleep computer does not recognize Drive C RRS feed

  • Question

  • Due to a hardware problem Dell replaced the MLB and returned the computer to me.  I kept the hard drive and reinserted it after I received the computer back from Dell. Everything seems to work okay except that when the computer goes to "sleep" and then I return it to awake it does not recognize Drive "C".  I checked the drivers and they are current, and the Power Option setting are okay (default).  Sleep worked just fine before the computer was repaired. What should I do to restore the sleep mode to proper operation?

    Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, Dell Studio 1557 laptop.

  • The problem is solved and I am not totlly sure why.  I performed a memory test which was fine.  I then decided to run the system repair disk which Dell and Microsoft recommend.  No repair selection was made since my system backup was not current.  I did that.  And left the computer for a few minutes.  It went to SLEEP and I brought it out and it came out fine.....no BSOD or other errors.  I have restarted the computer and put it to sleep several times and it seems to work just fine.  So I guess there is no problem any longer.

  • The issue should be caused by the device drivers. Please contact Dell support again to resolve this issue.
