rebooting after hibernate somtimes fails

Posted: 01-23-2009, 07:05 PM
Hello:
I have a toshiba P205d-s8802 laptop running under win xp sp3, I had 2GB ram,
everything was OK. Today I installed another 2GB ram (different brand). I
restarted, worked normally, then hibernated.
at rebooting, the ribbon scroll to the end and everything stop there. I
should shut down (with the power button), then restart normally. Then if I
hibernate a second time, rebooting succeed one or two times, then the
blocking phenomenon reappears.
both ram are PC5300 (667).

any idea?

Thanks
Maurice

Your Toshiba P205D-S8802 only supports modules made with a specific type of
chip. It is unlikely that memory made without this specific type of chip will
work in your system. Two gigs of guaranteed 4allmemory is forty bucks:

When new memory is installed on a computer, it should be
tested. Same goes for when you take delivery of a new
computer. You want to run some tests, to make sure it is
functioning correctly. There is no sense in
accepting a defective product.

Memtest86+ from memtest.org is an example of a test
application you can use. Another is this one from
Microsoft (which I haven't tried).

http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

These programs (the useful ones), tend to be
self-booting. Without the regular OS present,
then it is possible to test more of the memory.
Memtest86+ tests everything, except some BIOS
reserved memory areas.

If preparing a CD, you need a CD burning software
that understands what to do with an ISO9660 file.
It isn't good enough to just "copy" the file to
the CD. Instead, the burning program reads the
file and parses what is in the file, and prepares
the bootable media based on that. A program
that can do that, would be something like Nero.

The memtest86+ tool has a pass counter, which shows
how many complete passes have run. You can stop
the test, after a couple passes have completed. There
may also be some additional (optional) tests available
in there (stuff like a storage test, that tests whether
the memory can retain its contents for some number
of hours).

Memory testing is not the only test you should run.
And this is because memtest is not the most
stressful test. There are other tests, that
make better combined memory+CPU type tests.
But memtest may give you some idea, whether
the memory should be returned immediately
to the vendor or not.

This is a test I like to run, while in Windows.
This tests both the memory and the CPU, and
also will give the cooling system on your
computer a workout. This particular version
runs in Windows, but you can also get versions
that run in Linux.

thank you so much
in fact I was looking for a memory test program.
I've downloaded "windows memory diagnostic" from microsoft site, test was
ok, I removed the two modules , and fixed them again interchanged,
apparently it works. now I restart from hibernate without problem, may be it
was a question of bad contacts.

thank you again

Maurice
