    Unable to turn on hibernation feature in Dell Latitude D630 laptop running on Windows 7

    My Dell Latitude D630 laptop running on Windows 7 does not show Hibernate/Sleep feature under power off options. When I make an attempt to enable this feature through command prompt, I am getting the error message “The following items are preventing hibernation on this system: There is one or more legacy drivers installed: VgaSave. An internal system component has disabled hibernation”. What could be the reason for that and how can I avoid it?

    Re: Unable to turn on hibernation feature in Dell Latitude D630 laptop running on Windows 7

    It seems that the problem is caused by the new video drivers installed into your system. Check for those drivers in Control Panel and re-install them. As a first step, click the ‘Start’ button and hit the ‘Control Panel’ option from the start menu. Click the ‘Hardware and Sound’ option available in ‘Control Panel’ window. Hit the ‘Device Manager’ option under ‘Devices and Printers’ afterwards and locate ‘Display Adapters’ option. Click the plus sign next to this option and find out the new video drivers. Right click on those drivers and select ‘Uninstall’ option. Reboot the PC afterwards to install the drivers again.

    Hello!
    It is likely that some incompatible video drivers have been installed without booting(logging) into windows properly(Administrator Account).If so, You will have to remove the newly installed drivers in Control Panel, ADD/REMOVE HARDWARE WIZARD. After the wizard completes successfully, reboot your PC and try reinstalling them again in the same manner, or from a genuine resource CD provided with your DELL LATITUDE D series laptop. Now, this problem won't occur. However if this hibernate failure message appears again, contact your computer vendor directly for support and further help on this issue.
    Thank You. Hope this helps. Wishing you a merry x-mas and a Happy new year in advance. :-)

    Hey, Vgasave is default video driver installed by windows itself when no compatible video driver is installed... you have to install the video driver first then you will be able to turn on the hibernation...

    i have provided the direct link to dell driver download page for Latitude D630 below for your convenience...

    Hello my dear Friend


    I think it might be the issue of the New Installed Drivers

    For this you have to Uninstall it and Then Reinstall on your window

    But before get in to the Actual process you have to Run the Driver in a Compatibility mode

    Again You have to see the Problem if You face any Issues then you can get in to the Un install of the New Drivers


    <> For this click on the "Start " menu

    <> There by you can Choose to select the "Control panel " option

    <> Then you have to tap on the "Hard ware and Sounds " option

    <> After that it will open a " Device Manager "

    <> Under this you will find a " Drivers and Devices "

    <> Finally you can click on the " New Driver " and Try to Click on "Un Install " option


    That is all


    Good luck
