Blue screen after hibernation/sleep on Windows 7

    General discussion

  • Just put a new hard drive in my PC after old one crashed. NEW copy of Windows 7 installed.  Have it a few days and now after every hibernation/sleep, I get blue screen errors.  I cannot do the following instructions I found from another user as I get an Access Denied message.  Can anyone help? PLEASE?

    We have found that sometimes the BCD file may have issues.

    You can try this to fix the BCD file.


    1. Run CMD.EXE as administrator

    2. Run the following command: bcdedit -enum all

       Look for "Resume from Hibernate" in the output from the command above(example below):

       Resume from Hibernate


       identifier {3d8d3081-33ac-11dc-9a41-806e6f6e6963}

       device partition=C:

       path \Windows\system32\winresume.exe

       description Windows Vista (TM) Enterprise (recovered)

       inherit {resumeloadersettings}

       filedevice partition=C:

       filepath \hiberfil.sys

       pae Yes

       debugoptionenabled No

    3. Once you have found it, copy the value for identifier (in this example - {3d8d3081-33ac-11dc-9a41-806e6f6e6963})

    4. Run the following command: bcdedit /deletevalue {3d8d3081-33ac-11dc-9a41-806e6f6e6963} inherit

    5. Test hibernation.
