I am running a custom-build system with an ASA P5k Deluxe motherboard and Q6600 processor. I'm not sure if this is a software or hardware problem, but I'm having trouble with sleep in Vista. If I set my BIOS power setting to Auto or S3, my machine will not resume from sleep properly. I can work if set to S1.
This is a custom-build with all new components, so I'm scratching my head over waht device might be having trouble with S3, or is the mobo?
I looked in the Vista logs and cant seem to find anything that it flags as a problem.
I also have a problem with low energy or sleep mode. I built my own computer using an ASUS P5K Deluxe Wifi board and have Vista Ultimate 32 bit, with Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 CPU, and 4 Gig Memory. This computer worked perfectly until about 10 days ago. Now, when my computer goes into sleep mode, it will not restart since it displays “overclocking not working”?? If I shut my computer down, it restarts fine. It just has problems with sleep mode. Any suggestions??
Thank you Badge for your suggestion, which I think is correct. I am very apprehensive about upgrading my BIOS, since I have never done it. I have a flash drive. Can you direct me to the best and safe way to upgrade my BIOS?
