  1. I only have 1x2GB of RAM installed (long story, but 2x2GB causes system instability! ), could this be a possible cause for the error I get? Where can I find this ProcessMonitor, is it part of the SDK that I downloaded ? Thanks for your help.
  2. I think you should ask this the support of your TV card manufacture. The trace whould also only show the driver as cause. And this is what you already know. You can try to disable the TV card most of the time and use devcon.exe to enable it via script when you need the TV card. It's been an ongoing thing for the last month or so, and BlackGold say they are not aware of any issues with the driver relating to sleep/resume functions. I was hoping I could analyze the .xml file to 100% confirm that it is the BlackGold drivers causing the issue and not say a conflict in drivers, for example my nVidia drivers may have an issue with the BlackGold TV Card installed or some other random events that are causing my problem. If I could identify a problem with my BlackGold drivers in the .xml file then I have some proof of my problem, and could send the .xml to BlackGold for them to look over and see what they make of it. But as I say, I cannot create the summary .xml file and do not understand why not, would anyone be able to advise me what I may be doing wrong ?
  3. Hi, Im wondering if anyone would be able to help me out? Ive been following the guide at: I run this code, and let it finish. xbootmgr -trace standby -traceFlags BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER -resultPath C:\TEMP I then run this code to create a summary.xml file xperf /tti -i standby_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl -o summary_sleep.xml -a suspend which always results in this error message and an empty .xml file C:\Temp>xperf /tti -i standby_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl -o summary_sleep. xml -a suspend xperf: warning: applying restriction of access for trace processing 33288636 Events were lost in this trace. Data may be unreliable . This is usually caused by insufficient disk bandwidth for ETW lo gging. Please try increasing the minimum and maximum number of buffers and/or the buffer size. Doubling these values would be a good first at tempt. Please note, though, that this action increases the amount of me mory reserved for ETW buffers, increasing memory pressure on your sce nario. See "xperf -help start" for the associated command line options. C:\Temp> I read somewhere you may need to increase the pagefile size, which I have done, increasing it from 2047 (Windows default) to 8192 - this made no difference. I also read that you need to turn UAC on (I had it off at first), but this also made no difference for me. I also read you may need to increase buffer sizes, but I dont know how to do this? I am running on a Crucial 64GB Real SSD, connected to SATA 6GB connection using AHCI. A brief history: I am trying to locate what is possibly causing my PC to be slower at sleep/startup than it should be. After a lot of faffing around and getting nowhere I have done a complete reinstall of windows 7 x86 Enterprise and just have the bare essential drivers installed - LAN, Audio, AHCI, ACPI and nVidia graphics card drivers (all the latest drivers). In this configuration, I timed my sleep/resume times (using a goold old fashioned stopwatch!) and found that my sleep times were averaging 12-15 seconds (Hybrid sleep) and my resume times were 5-7 seconds. This is what I am using as a benchmark for future tests. Now I install my TV card (Blackgold BGT3595) and as soon as I install the drivers for this card (latest drivers from manufacturers website) I see a delay in my sleep/resume times. Sleep times are now 17-31 seconds and resume times are 12-21 seconds - a big difference in comparison to the times before these drivers where installed. I would really like to have the summary .xml file for me to identify exactly where the problems lie, and also so I could use as evidence to provide to Blackgold incase it turns out it is deffinately related to thier drivers, then the information in the summary .xml file could be of use to them in determining where the problem lies, and hopefully coming up with a solution. The .etl file that is generated is 779MB and would be too large (I think) to send to them so the summary.xml file is my best bet I think, but as I say above, I cannot create the summary .xml file for some reason. I can open .etl file and view the contents, but I have no clue in what I am doing and how to interpret the information displayed to me. I can provide a quick snapshot here of Driver Delays, does this look normal or wrong ? Also, on a side note, I noticed in the power settings where you can define what the power buttons do, before I installed the TV Card drivers I had a "Power Button" option, but after installing the drivers I had a "Power Button" and "Sleep Button" options. I found this a little confusing I just thought I would mention in here for consistency. Thanks in advance for any help!!
