Windows 8.1 crash returning from sleep

Hi all, I'd like to start overclocking my system but I can't with this stability issue. I crash returning from sleep mode without fail. No blue screen just a hard hang up about 30 seconds, then black screen auto reboot. Using whocrashedme it appears to be exclusively 0xD1 bugs "probably cause by" ntoskrnl.exe and the most recent one today being by ntkrnlmp.exe. I've seen other threads about Win 8.1 crashing from return to sleep but without resolve. Please help?

  1. I was having this issue when I finished my new build around Christmas time. A lot of people attribute this problem to the "Fast Startup" mode. This is the link I found on google that fixed my problem. Just follow the instructions.

    I hope this helps you and I hope that my posting that link is okay on these forums.

    I know this says for shutdown/restart issues, but the problem lies within this new feature. It certainly fixed my shut down problems and resuming from "Away Mode" problems.
  2. Didn't fix it but thanks for replying.
  3. okay upon searching the microsoft forums there might be a hotfix but it says it applies to windows 8. From what I've gathered there are no major differences from 8 to 8.1 as far as software and coding.

    This is the hotfix that microsoft has for it. Just make sure you read it thoroughly before you download it because I do not know your full system specs. This hotfix is specifically for certain bios settings that may or may not be on, and intel based x64 chipsets on top of that.

    It also lists a work around which you might try before you apply the hotfix, if you aren't sure about it.
  4. I installed it but no difference.
  5. What are the specs of your build?
  6. 4770k on Asrock Z87 Extreme4
    16GB G.Skill Sniper 1600MHz
    Seagate Barracua 2TB
    GTX 760 Superclocked

    I decided last night to roll back to Windows 8 and the problem is gone. I don't think I'll reupdate to 8.1 after that mess.
  7. I'm sorry to hear that. I didn't realize you had upgraded to 8.1 from 8. I have heard nothing but horror stories about people upgrading from one version of windows to another.
  8. Well reinstalling Windows 8 fixed it. It goes to sleep and returns with out any issues so I guess we'll call that the solution. xD
  9. Reinstalling W8 fixed it? I read a lot of other forums where even this didnt "fix" it, after some time. To me this is not acceptable. Why don't we hear a proper solution from the makers? W8 worked good, W8.1 doesn't. I'm struggling with this for a couple of months now and I think this is ridiculous. I tried ALL the "solutions". I'll let you know when I found something, I'll keep on searching.
  10. It was my wireless adapter. TP link never made a driver for 8.1. Setting the power options to not turn it off to save power made it more reliable but Ive since switched to a different adapter model.
  11. If you've a restore point available, please do restore your PC to an earlier date. The Recovery option is available only if there is a restore point available. This will repair Windows 8.1 crashes.

    2. Select Properties from the context menu.
    3. Click Advanced system settings link.
    4. Click the System Protection tab in the System Properties dialog.
    5. Click System Restore button.
    6. System Restore wizard will open.
    7. Click the Next button.
    8. In the Page # 2, check-up the box labeled Show more restore points.
    9. Select a restore point, and then click the Next button. Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Use the Zombie Soft Fix. Select the oeprating system in the welcome page, and then select the freuqency of the error. Go to the next step and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Check if your computer memory problems are causing frequent crashes. Windows Memory Diagnostic tool might be helpful in this regard. You would have to check for memory problems, conduct several memory tests, and then if any problems are found there might be a need to replace your Random Access Memory (RAM).

    1. Press Windows Key.
    2. Type Memory in the Search Box.
    3. Click the Settings icon.
    4. Open Diagnose your computer's memory problems
    5. Click Restart now and check for problems.
    6. The computer will be automatically restarted, and several memory tests will be started. If required, purchase a new RAM, if any problems are detected with the existing.
