Recently I have a problem, when waking up my computer from hibernation. When I hibernates my computer, it turns off after writing the memory content to the SSD, but when I wake it up, I get the following screen:


Pressing Enter, resulting in starting Windows 7 from the beginning, with loss of data that was there before hibernating my computer.
Why this is happening?

Hello,
I'm not that experienced with it and I seem to think that Win7 doesn't do a good job with it. Anyway - I'd recommend that you first disable it, and then enable it. HERE is a link for that. If that doesn't help then we'll need to continue. I'd guess that the hyberfil.sys file has been corrupted; and disabling and then re-enabling it should fix it. If not then maybe disable it as per the link but before you enable it again - presuming you have to restart the system after you disable it - so wait till it comes up again. At this point you should delete the hyberfil.sys file in the root directory of C: (IE: C:\hyberfil.sys). You may have 'access violation' issues, but then that's an entirely set of stuff.

Thanks for you comment. It seems that disabling and enabling the hibernation, according to the Microsoft link, solved the problem.
 
im guessing your PC is very old or you are one of the few anti-windows 10 users but if it is a really old PC i would try replacing the CMOS battery on your motherboard because it may not be holding settings anymore. the battery is just a common button (watch) battery

If the problem would be the CMOS battery, than all the BIOS settings would be deleted, and I would get an error message during a regular turning on of the computer than the BIOS setting has been reseted to their factory default.
