Error while hibernating my coputer

I had expand my main memory in my computer by replacing old 2 256MB cards, with 2 1000MB card (to total 2GB). The replacment had been done by the ACER technical group in ISRAEL.

When i try to hibernate my system while running a lot of processes, i get an error message that announce that it cannot hibernate, and the system return to work without hibernating. In such a case i still can perform STADBY, but the HIBERNATION option disappear from the STOP COMPUTER buttons.
If i run only a little amount of tasks, the Hibernation works well.
When i askes ACER technical group, they told me to reinstall my xp system. but in such a case i have to reintall all my applications - a very long and time-consumming task.

Is there any other possiblity?

    As i mentioned Hibernation is working, but only when the system is not loaded. for example when i run 20-30 tasks/programs the Hibernation fails, but if only 2-3 tasks, is works.
    All applications mentioned in your reply are hibernation enabled.

    You can update to service pack 3 to fix this problem (which is common when ram is 1gig or more) o.r download the patch from here and re boot

    After some googling, I discovered that it is a common error, already fixed and documented in the Knowledge Base (article).
    happens on systems with more than 1 GB of RAM, and the latest version
    of Windows XP (SP2 and Media Center 2005): under certain
    configurations, the system is not able to obtain enough memory for the
    Hibernation process, thus aborting it.
    Note: a colleague hinted the patch is also available within service pack 3.

    The fix is easy: update to SP3 or install the patch (from the article above or directly from here), restart the PC, and live happy - and hibernated.

A reinstall might not be a bad idea. You probably have a large buildup of system files and running tasks that are not needed. Every so often, I do a fresh install of my personal computers just to keep them running properly. Upgrading your memory was a great idea, and a system refresh would help as well.

It is not due to ram.... for hibernation there is a hiberfile.sys file in the system... its size depends on your system configuration....

it is 2Gb in my system.... depending on its size only your system can hibernate...

I have a 2GB sandisk memory card in my lgks360 tribe, but it does accommodate files to the full capacity, it only uses 115MB but it shows 2gb when plugged the phone to the computer. sometimes music skips...

HI,some memory cards does that way,especially when it is fake (not the original type of memory card, doesn't come with the original content of GB space inside and so on. And the total amount ofsize in the memory card is not 2GB, they just edited 2GB on the memory card,so when you slot it into the phone or your PC, it will display, 2GB.

I would advice that if it's a new memory card,you can take it back for replacement. or you can get another one.

Take care.

Camera card error

Basically you can format the card using the camera or a computer which may get it working again or just replace it with a new one. A 2gb card is fairly inexpensive to replace.

Standard RAM Failure after extended RAM replacement

Sometimes only certain types of RAM cards work with a computer. Check the old card to see what type it is. (Look for the letters "CMOS" or "EDO".) Make sure the new card is the same type as the old one. If not, put the old one back in and find the proper type of card.

Your computers SD card reader is more than likely too old. My computer is only a year old and was told it wouldn't work. I called PNY and they told me that I needed to buy either a 1GB or 2GB card or an SDHC external adapter. Of course it doesn't tell you this on the package, good luck!

Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.

You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.

Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.

Memory card

Unfortunately, the A520 does not support SD memory cards with more than 2GB capacity, and doesn't support SDHC at all. (1GB max for MMC cards.) I know memory is much cheaper than when the camera first came out, but in 2005 2GB was about as large as you could get.
