I've run a Driver Checker. The drivers it says are out of date are the following: High Definition Audio Device, nVidia nForce Networking Controller, NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management, and Canon MP210 ser.

Had trouble finding drivers for them.

Update all your drivers. Drivers can cause hibernation issues and double check your video drivers.

What's the easiest way to update them? I checked nvidia's website but it needs a specific model number.

best way to update them is go to the manufacturer's web site and download the drivers for your specific model. Easiest way is to go to the manufacturer's website for your PC.

What do I do when I can't find out the specific model? Under Speccy my Networking Controller and PCI System Management don't have a specific model, just the name.

OS drivers are being updated constantly by Windows Updates.

Windows 7 RTM OS drivers base timestamp = 13 July 2009

The Windows NT Kernel & Executive, DirectX Graphics Kernel, networking related OS drivers, etc... have all been updated since Windows 7 RTM and will be again given that Windows 7 SP1 is on the horizon.

3rd party video, audio, networking, etc... device drivers that do not have 2010 timestamps on them often show up in BSOD kernel memory dumps as the probable cause of the crashes.

Windows 7 x64 needs updated digitally signed drivers to guarantee system stability.

Driver information - http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.html

Hmm, the nvidia nforce System Management Controller is on there. But when I click the link to go to the download it takes me to the driver page. Under nForce I have to select a series and product which isn't identified seemingly anywhere.

Your chipset appears to be a nforce 430

Actually, that is perfect for Windows 7. The 6/21/2006 is a default date from Vista. 6.1.7600.16385 = Windows 7 build.

Not sure if that is nForce, though.

My system shows PCI Bus with same timestamp and version number.

The 7-13-2009 timestamp shows up in Windows 7 dump files.

So it's obviously not that. I just updated my video card but I doubt it was that. The version that was released was released prior to my problems.

If the hard drive itself was just failing I'd see more problems than just the disc read error right?

Nope, those are the problems that you would see. Failing hard drive cause various errors and one of them would be read errors and without being able to check the smart status of the drive it's hard to say if it is failing for sure.
You could try running a disc scan.
Open a command prompt and type chkdsk /f /r

Did that and a Hard Drive analysis program. No errors came up. If I leave the computer on it pretty much run flawlessly. Only if I restart it do I see problems.

So I was messing around in Windows Control Panel and found a Resource and Performance Monitor. Under Disk Checks there is a SMART disk status which says

root\wmi:SELECT * FROM MSStorageDriver_FailurePredictStatus WHERE PredictFailure = true Query Result: 0x0

and a Logical Disk Dirty Bit Set that says:

root\cimv2:SELECT __Relpath, Name, Description, FileSystem, VolumeDirty FROM Win32_LogicalDisk Where DriveType = 3 and VolumeDirty = true Query Result: 0x0


Does that mean anything?

I don't know where you're getting that information but I still think it may be the HD going bad.

I thought I had the problem fixed by installing a new video driver and deleting the Windows Keyboard/Mouse program that had installed that Windows said was interfering with Sleep Mode. Got the problem again this morning. This time after Ctrl+Alt+Deleting a few times I got the following: NVIDIA Boot Agent 249.0542
Client Mac ADDR:
DHCP (With a loading thing)

Took a while to search and then said No boot filename received. It did it again and then finally said Disk Boot Failure. Insert System Disk and Press Enter.

Ran the hard drive analysis again and got a Warning: Command issued while DRQ set. Does that mean my hard drive is dead?

Going to buy a new hard drive. What brand/model would you go with? Currently I have a WD Caviar so I'm not too keen on buying another but I'm reading good thins about the Black model.

What's the difference between the Black, Green, and Blue models?
