Lenovo IdeaPad goes BSOD after sleep mode

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

My laptop, a Lenovo Ideapad has a problem. It goes to sleep mode, then it goes BSOD. I haven't installed any hardware or software lately that could have caused the problem. The hibernation works, though. Could it be a video driver problem or do I have to reinstall the OS?

Lenovo IdeaPad goes BSOD after sleep mode


Sleep mode is when a machine state is held within the RAM unit.  The moment you put your laptop in Sleep Mode, the computer cuts any power to unneeded components and places the RAM in a low power state, enough to retain the current state data.

The problem with your BSOD might come from the fact that when you wake up your laptop, the RAM refuses to distribute essential contents for the operating systems to boot up. 

A sleeping laptop is like a device on standby power, it still needs very small amount of power, so the RAM must have problem with exchanging data during the wake up process.

A quick solution is removing the ram while the laptop is shutdown, and then power it on without the ram for a hard reset, then shut it down again using the power button on the laptop, and insert the RAM module in the laptop again. This solution will remove your problem.
