  1. Hellow,
    I'm new here and have a irritating problem.
    (I'm from Belgium so excuse me if my english isn't fine)
    What happens?

    so, I want to use the sleep mode in vista ultimate 32 bit. After I clicked the sleep button I get a black screen. My screen turns off, but my computer stays on. After a while I hear my 8800 GT going crazy (the fan) than I have two options.
    a) my computer reboots with an BSOD and than shows an error report
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.0.6001.
    Locale ID: 2067

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 124
    BCP1: 00000000
    BCP2: 855AC3F0
    BCP3: B2000040
    BCP4: 00000800
    OS Version: 6_0_6001
    Service Pack: 1_0
    Product: 256_1

    Files that help describe the problem:

    b) he goes back to the log on screen where he keeps hanging. I have to press the restart button. The computer restarts without BSOD.

    hope you guys can help me :)

    This error is caused by a fatal hardware error. You could do two things:

    1. Run Memtest on your RAM and run a full harddrive diagnostics.


    2. Disable Sleep Mode. This has worked for some. Try this first and tell us if this brings stability.

    yes, this helps. But I don't have any use of it, I would like to use sleep mode.
    Its not that my computer crashes at one moment. No, only when I press the sleep button.

    This is a Vista issue for many people. I am fairly certain that if you go to the MS Forums for Vista you will find a solution.

    will check it, thx ;)

    Something has changed. I recently formatted the pc because I will go to a LAN party with some friends. I tried the sleepmode. I don't get a BSOD. It just turns my screen off and than the fan of my VGA goes wild, after that I get the Log-on screen and I can just continue working, no errors at all.

    what to do what to do?
