    Default A75 Pro4 - Resume from sleep unreliable

    Hi
    Under Windows 7 Sleep mode, either with or without Hybrid mode, this board doesn't reliably come out of sleep. It goes into sleep yet when I wake the computer using wireless keyboard different things may happen.... the PC will just shut off, or, it will just reboot and the ASRock Big Logo/enter into BIOS displays and then it resumes, and/or shows the Windows did not shut down properly msg and when in Windows shows me the Windows Bluescreened error....

    the Bluescreen error varies as well from 1d, 1a, 1f and more error codes.... sometimes the same, other times different.

    It will work for a while on occasion.... for the last few days it's been working great..... in and out of sleep mode.... but then tonight, bang, all of a sudden not working for anything.

    I have spent countless hours trying different bios settings, factory defaults.... I've now turned everything I'm not using off in the bios (eg. Ethernet, serial port, etc.)

    This is a HTPC using a wireless PCI LAN card.... yes, I know... old card. I've also installed 2 more PCI cards... I have tried removing ALL cards and the same thing happens.

    I have the following:
    AMD3870
    G.Skill Ripjaws 4G Kit (F3-14900CL9D-4GBXM) - in the white sockets (big fan preventing installation in blue sockets)
    Patriot PYRO 60G SATA 3 SSD
    2x 180G 7200 SATA HDD
    1x LiteOn BluRay Drive

    Some of the parts (2x HDD and PSU) were taken from my older HTPC as I think they can still be used... re: the PSU I only have a 4pin 12V supply to the motherboard but I think this is still fine.

    The memory is not on the supported list by ASRock but I didn't realise there was such a requirement these days and just trusted the shop with whatever they gave me.... please don't tell me this is the problem... all packaging thrown out and can't replace.

    Anyway, it's doing my head in and hoping for some guidance.....

    Thank you in advance for any help getting this sorted.

    I increased NB voltage as you suggested and it successfully resumed from sleep first time trying, and been working pretty well ever since. It failed once with a bluescreen but worked again afterwards.

    Thanks wazza300!! I've spent countless hours trying to get this successfully working and your suggestion may be the fix.

    Hope it remains like this for more than just a day or two.

    Another option is to try Hibernate rather than Sleep mode.
    With my older P35 system, coming out of hibernation by pressing the reset front case switch works fine every time.
    I agree with Wazza, tweaking memory voltages often solves the problem.
