[FIXED] Closing the lid on Windows 8 crashes the system with a BSOD It's also similar if one tries to disable/uninstall the AMD driver in the Device Manager (an old driver version with allow it, returning the system to a basic driver) or probably also if one disables/uninstalls the monitor driver (an old driver would also allow it). The dump appears to point to the generic Monitor.sys but I doubt it's that. It's deployed on every windows computer on the planet verbatim. To not say too many details this question on another forum also has the same problem: http://superuser.com/questions/525312/windows-8-crashes-whenever-i-close-the-lid (not by me but the problem is same) Any help would be appreciated. Even hints. Thank you. :banana: edit: Driver: Latest stable. Similar on latest Beta. It is stable on ancient and 'Windows Update' drivers that I don't want to use. AMD: HD 5700M Windows: 8 64 Machine: A Laptop with an Intel mobo and a Core 2 Sandy Bridge. edit: Important: The lid is supposed to do nothing on power options. The mere closing of it without being instructed to do something in Windows crashes it.
