Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213427
Suspend bricked my pc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
Suspending my system seems to have turned my PC into a brick. I get no BIOS
displayed when I turn the PC on, I am unable to boot from HDD, CD, FDD, or USB Key.
I currently have no idea how to get my system booted again as I don't even get a
bios screen displayed!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6 vanilla release (I can't remember if I had booted into normal or Xen aware
kernel). Sorry, but I'm not sure what component to assign this bug to.
Unknown as I can't reboot my system
Steps to Reproduce:
3.Kiss goodbye to PC!
PC resumes session on power up
From what I can remember I have an LGA775 P4 (3G) processor. Motherboard is an
Intel D915GAV. The only additional component I have is an Aureal Vortex PCI
I would suggest contacting your system's manufacturer. It would seem that they
have a serious bug in their bios implementation.
What would I say to my system manufacturer? I can't imagine getting much
feedback if I go to them and say that I used a non MS OS and now my PC no
I would have also thought that an Intel branded motherboard would have a
properly functioning bios? If it is the Bios that is at fault, what can I do
to bring my PC back to life? Should there be a bios reset button or something?
They should support you, regardless of what OS you use.
Tell them you tried to suspend to ram under Linux, and this was the result. If
there's some special method of resetting things, they should be able to tell
you that too.
I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do to help you with the information
you've given, so I'm going to close this as 'cantfix'. Please feel free to
reopen if you're able to provide more information and feel we can do something
