Freezing Issue In Microsoft® Windows® 7 After Hibernation
Causes and solutions of freezing in Windows 7 after hibernation
Hibernation is an advanced feature in Windows 7 operating system, which not only saves your energy consumption but also saves you from shutting off and on your PC every time you move from your desk and come back. But sometimes, you may notice that your computer freezes after it wakes up after hibernation. Let us have a look at the causes of Windows 7 hibernate freeze and how to solve the possible issues.
Following are some important points about the causes and solutions of freezing in Windows 7 after hibernation:
- Corrupt registry
- Outdated BIOS
- Outdated software or hardware drivers
- Power issues
Corrupt registry is the cause of many problems in your computer system, such as delay in starting up and shutting down, slow web surfing and Windows 7 hibernate freeze. Basically, registry is the database which is meant to store information required for the running of the computer. Windows refers to this database whenever a request is made. New files and entries are added to the registry every time you open a web page, install a program or uninstall it or add a new software or hardware to your system. Because the registry continues to get bigger, it reaches a breaking point at some time and then, it becomes corrupt. In order to fix such an issue, you should use a registry cleaning tool which will delete any corrupt entries in the database and after that, the performance of your computer will be enhanced to a great extent.
Sometimes, outdated BIOS also causes Windows 7 hibernate freeze problem. In that case, the only solution that seems to be effective is to install the latest BIOS updates. But make sure that you are not updating with the beta version.
Outdated drivers cause a lot of problems in your computer and these can also result in Windows 7 hibernate freeze. If your computer also freezes after hibernation, then run your Windows update, update your drivers and also test your hard drivers for possible errors. After this, your computer will immediately come back to its normal state after hibernation.
If your PSU is not powerful enough or if it is faulty, then it can cause Windows 7 hibernate freeze while coming out of hibernation. Hibernation is the lower energy consumption state and when you suddenly wake it up, it may take a few minutes to come back. However, this issue may not come if your PSU is really strong.
