I've installed 128 GB m4 into Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 netbook.
Upgraded drive's firmware to 309.
Installed Windows 7 anew (ultimate, on unpartitioned drive, if that matters).
Installed all possible drivers taken from dell and/or hardware vendors.
Everything works fine except one fundamental for a mobile computer feature: it can't wake up from sleep.
The bios version is the latest one (A012), fresh Intel chipset drivers are installed, I've tried with or without Intel storage driver, tried all possible bios settings combinations -- legacy usb on/off etc., tried disabling LPM in registry.
I understand thousands of people experience the same issue with other brands of SSDs and PCs, but here it is in details anyway: computer falls asleep (S1 or S3, I'm not sure) fine; it only wakes up on power button press, then it hangs for a while, then for a fraction of second displays a squashed blue screen and reboots. Depending if password is required or not, I can see the desktop for couple of seconds.
Given that HDD indicator stays off after waking up and crash dump (or any events in a log) don't get saved, I assume the drive fails to initialise after wakeup and windows then crashes on its first attempt to access the drive.
My questions are:
- Is it "normal" for Windows 7 on mini + SSD
- Are there any secret ways to fix the problem?
- Can I expect different behaviour if I install Intel 320 series SSD
