Q: Slow system performance after resuming from the sleep mode

I am getting a slow system performance after resuming the computer from sleep mode.

Using Windows 7 Professional

Steps tried already:

1. Updated the Nvidia display card drivers.

2. Disabled the Third party services and startup items.

3. Put the computer in the complete hardware clean boot, all hardware devices disabled through the device manager including the LAN card, Sound Card, Ports etc.

4. Put the power plans to balanced.

5. Now trying to use the Process Monitor to check the processes which are running and not working fine when resuming from the sleep mode

Any other help would be appriciated.

Thanks and Regards,



Hi Nitin,



It seems that any of the system file is corrupt you may use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file. Follow the link given below for the same.

You may also update the chipset drivers from the manufacturer’s website and check if that is of help.

Refer to:
