The memory size was off and the resume from hibernation fails. To fix that I either tap F8 and select a normal startup or in really bad cases I'll boot a linux cd to delete the hiberfil.sys file.
I have a hp dv8000 laptop that I ruined the screen on, everything else worked (computer A). So I just bought another identical dv8000 laptop that I was planning on using for parts to fix mine(computer B). However B is also in perfect working order and in better shape then A. so instead of tearing apart B I thought I would just pull the harddrive from A and stick it in B so that I had all of my programs, files, settings, etc on a perfect computer. thought it would be the quickest way to get one working computer just how I had mine before I broke it.
However when I swapped them it gets stuck on a screen saying...resuming windows.... so I guess that means it wasn't as easy a swap as I was hoping for.
anyone out there know what I need to do? or if this type of thing is possible or should I just tear them both apart and replace the screen of my original computer.
