  1. Upgraded Matrix Storage Manager from 7.6 to 8.2, and could no longer wake from Suspend-To-RAM (S3) sleep without a wide variety of BSOD, etc.. Downgraded to 7.6, no more BSOD on wakening. Anyone else? Obligatory pointless environment dump: QX9650, Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R (with ICH9R) BIOS F10, Windows XP SP3 RC, 4 GB, four Seagate 7200.10 320 GB HDD, two 7200.11 500 GB HDD, etc.. Thanks!

  2. Hi,

    Looking at the release notes, seems that you are experiencing known issue reference # 2662638 or similar, it might be worth contacting Intel or Gigabyte on the issue.

    You could install version if you'd wanna try a newer one. I'll keep an eye on newer versions if they get that sorted.

  3. Yeah, saw that known issue, but it looks like Vista-only. Maybe not :-) Trying 7.8, thanks!
