I just upgraded my Windows XP PC from a Gigabyte 6600GT video card to a Sapphire HD 4670, and the computer hasn't been able to come out of hibernation ever since.

It goes into hibernation and switches off fine, but when I turn it on again the "Resuming Windows" screen comes up, gets to 100% and then right where the login screen would normally show, the entire screen just goes black and I am unable to do anything except reboot. This only happens when I hibernate the PC - after it has been shutdown or restarted the login screen shows up fine. This has only started to happen with the new video card.

I would greatly appreciate any help, as hibernate mode is almost a necessity for my PC - it takes a very long time to restart.

1. Whats your system spec's?

2. Did you uninstall your old graphics card drivers?

3. Get this to do a bit of a clean up on your computer: http://www.ccleaner.com/

Did u uninstall the other drivers (If the card was Nvidia), and install the new drivers (If this card is ATI)??

I have uninstalled the nVidia display driver (still have to keep the nForce drivers for my ethernet adapter) and installed the ATI Catalyst driver that came on the bundled disk.
