This is a common hibernation issue ... here is the fix:
\015\012Once you are able to get it to start up again (there is no sure fire way to do this, it just happens!).
\015\012The virtual memory size is set too low! It must be set to an amount larger than your amount of physical memory. (If you have 2GB or memory, then Virtual memory must be more than 2048MB.
\015\012
\015\012Right-click [My computer]
\015\012In the [General] tab, note the amount of RAM
\015\012Select the [Advanced] tab
\015\012Select the [Settings] button in the "Performance" section.
\015\012Click on the [Advanced] tab
\015\012Click on the [change] button in the "Virtual Memory" section
\015\012almost there!
\015\012Highlight the boot drive (C:)
\015\012Don't change the locartion of the VM file.
\015\012Select "Custom size" radial button.
\015\012Enter a number that ois larger than your physical memory from the General tab
\015\0121GB = 1024MB (plus 512MM or so) = 1536MB
\015\0122GB=2048MB (plus 512MB or so) = 2560MB
\015\0123GB=3072MB (plus 512MB or so) = 3584MB

Reboot the computer and when you here the motherboard tone, tap the delete key to see if you can get into the BIOS screen. If the delete key does not work, try F2. If you can get into the BIOS, then there is a chance it is simply a case of a bad setting. Go to the system default...which is probably on the last page of the BIOS screen. Click set default settings and then F10 to save and reboot. Try letting the laptop boot normally. If it does great, if it doesn't, try tapping F8 on a reboot after the sound and see if you can get into the multi-boot menu. If you can see the menu, boot into safe mode with networking. If it does boot into safe mode, try to update the video driver. Go to control panel > device manager > scroll down to video adapters and right click on the adapter listed and update driver. After it is finished, try to reboot normally.
