ndis.sys BSOD when hibernate/stand-by

  1. Hi all,

    Client has a VAIO VGN-S58GP laptop running WINXP SP2. When the PC enters Stand-By or Hinbernation mode, upon wake-up he receives a BSOD error reffering to ndis.sys instantly.
    Research points to SP2 fixing the problem, but the OS is up-to-date with the latest hotfixes and drivers have now all been updated but to no avail.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers :grinthumb

    Just to update further:

    I also set the NIC to 100/Full Duplex, rather than Auto-Detect. This caused the BSOD errors not to appear when coming out of stand-by, but instead now the screen is totally black, with no HDD activity (fan spins though!).

    Wierd? I think so!

    Should anyone care, I solved the problem by doing the following:

    - Creating a copy of the Hardware profile (just in case)
    - Disabling all NIC in device manager
    - Re-booted, selecting the hardware profile with the disabled NIC
    - 1 by 1 enabled NICs and re-booted each time

    Problem was found to be with the onboard W-NIC (hardware problem).
