Hibernate Windows 7 64-bit version on dv3660ej laptop Bios

HP Recommended

Hi all,

Just installed Windows 7 on dv3660ej laptop :

(1) hibernation mode works kind of half way through. It does hibernate correctly but when coming up from hibernation, it notifies me that there were some issues and that the hibernation file was not written completely and allows me to either continue or delete the hibernation file.

 

 What I also noticed is that my hiberfil.sys file is smaller than my RAM. It is only 3.2 gigs in size, when I have 4 gigs of RAM. I tried disabling and enabling hibernation but it's still only 3.2 gigs large. Is this normal ?

The hibernation bug is a known problem in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors of Windows 7 RC. There is not too much you can presently do about it. There have been some hacks to try and alleviate the problem, which also existed in Win XP and Vista. The generally held belief is that the problem has to do with video driver compatibliity and running background processes. Keep an eye on the bug reports at Microsoft Technet for updates to the issue.
