Vista BSOD's almost every time I sleep or go into standby


I'm running windows vista ultimate on a four month old HP Pavillion laptop, and I'm experiencing some problems with BSOD's. They usually occur after I put my laptop into sleep mode, and I was hoping someone might be able to help me. Included is the information I could get from Problem Reports and Solutions.

Who installed Ultimate?

Installing Windows is tough. Installing Windows on a laptop is harder than bomb disposal. Are you sure the BIOS, motherboard drivers and all other drivers are exactly what the laptop maker wants?

I installed ultimate

I was actually the one who installed ultimate, and although I am not sure about the BIOS, the drivers should be fine, as I downloaded them all from HP's website.

Time to see what HP has to say.

Thank you.

For not taking out your frustration on us. The issue is 99% sure to be BIOS, driver with something added beyond Microsoft and HP's issued products taking up the remaining 1%.

If the machine works fine with the factory load (let's hope so) then it's 99% sure not a hardware issue.
