Hi everyone, hope someone can help. every once in a while (happened today and about a week ago)when i put the computer in stand-by and later power up, instead of the mormal login screen, the computer does a full start and than goes into scan disc mode, can't seem to find anything that would cause this to happen. help appreciated.

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini050904.02.dmp, does anyone out there have any ideas???

still having problems, still waiting for some help, does anyone know what the Minidump file is for and can you delete it, it seems to be the root of my problem, replies greatly appreciated.

Is a Minimum memory dump file that is created by your OS for diagnostics, and can be sent to Microsoft.

I doubt that is the route of your problems. But may hold the answer to them.

I suspect that the problem lies with the Standby feature, I don’t have specific knowledge of that.

I fine that hibernate is a better tool than standby. If this only happens with standby, try using hibernate at least until you resolve the problem.

At least this will bump you to the top.
