PC Crashes on Wake Up from Sleep After Installing Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Product Name: HP Pavilion p7-1421 Desktop PC
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All,


After installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update my PC crashes on wake from sleep.


It happens about 50% of the time on wakeup from sleep. Here are the symptoms:


  1. On wake from sleep my mouse cursor is only visable on my secondary monitor and the screen is black
  2. The windows working icon spins on blank/black secondary monitor a few times and then the computer automatically restarts
  3. I have found a workaround by putting the computer back to sleep before the crash/restart and then waking it up again
  4. I have updated my Video Card driver (which happens automatically in Windows 10 anyway)
  5. I have emailed AMD tech support and they said it was a known issue but they are no longer updating drivers for my system

Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?


I have seen multiple posts for different systems on the Microsoft Tech Support website here are some of them:


Windows 10 Anniversary Update freezes at lock screen when waking from sleep





Windows 10 may freeze after installing the Anniversary Update - Updated 8-31-16




These solutions do not work.


Thanks for your help!
