Check your nVidia video drivers.
After battling this same problem for the last couple of months, I started
to wonder if this could be a video problem. My HP has an nVidia GeForce
Go 6150. I did a Google search on nVidia and Vista, and found several
hits on incompatibilities. Going back to hp.com to check on driver
updates, I found 2 driver updates for Chipset and Driver with the
"Fixes display compatibility issues that may occur when resuming from
I installed, and it SEEMS to have fixed the problem. Granted this is
one time, but it's one more time than I've been successful before this.
Hope this helps...
