windows xp unable to load hibernation files

February 25, 2012 at 13:34:45
Specs: Windows XP, 1GB
The computer is not able to load the hibernation files when it's re-start it. I get a black screen saying that "the last attempt to restart the system from its previous location failed" and give the options to try again or delete restoration files. Sometimes I get a message saying that the files should be corrupted and the restoration is not possible, others, I can restart it in the second attempt. Is there a way to fix that? Thank you.

Are you asking about a laptop or desktop? If it's a desktop, why are you using Hibernate?

Thanks for your interest. It is a desktop. Apparently, the hibernation's file has a problem to be open it, because the error is permanent. I have the computer programmed to awake every day at the same time, and when I check it, I always have a black screen with that message. Usually, when I press to do a second try, the awaking goes without problem. I think that if the file would be corrupted, that would not happens. What do you think?

I have to use hibernate for two reasons:
1st. Because the starting is faster.
2nd. Because if I don't hibernate, the auto-start scheduled won't work.

Standby & Hibernate are features designed for laptops & other portable devices, not desktops. There are other ways to do what you want.

Hi. Thank you very much for your answers. However, I could not find an answer to my issue in any of the references that you offered. The hibernate feature is not only for battery operated devices. It also may be used to save electricity when a PC is not in use for long time, and to disconnect the device without to lost the programs that we have open. I have been using it for years without any problem. When you use the standby feature instead of hibernation, your hardware is not turned off, so it is not very good to save electricity.
