    Windows Restart During Hibernation

    Very often, but not always, my computer will restart during hibernation.
    Occasionally, after the restart it will give me an error message to the
    effect of "Windows had to shut down unexpectedly...". Very occasionally, it
    will tell me it was a hard drive error associated with hibernation. Any
    suggestions would be appreciated. On another note (I believe this is
    unrelated but who knows), occasionally (about 5 times in 2 months) during
    hibernation the computer will just go blank and nothing I do can bring it
    back. I am not even able to power it off. The only way to get anything back
    is to remove the battery and put it back in and then I can restart. Thanks
    for any help.

    Try this: Set your hard drive to turn off a couple of minutes before
    hibernate.

    Hi,

    From experience, the symptoms that you are experiencing is one of impending
    hardware failure. One way is to try to resit all connectors on the system
    board. One more thing to do is to run exhaustive hardware diagnostics, you
    can try prime95

    Regards,
    Kueh.
