When waking up or coming out of hibernation in Windows 7, the following error message may appear:

“Your system’s firmware did not preserve the system memory map across the hibernation transition. If you proceed with resume, your system could behave in an unexpected manner after resume completes. It is recommended that you save all your data and reboot after system resume finishes. Kindly check for a firmware update with your system vender as it may fix this problem.”

Despite the error message, Windows 7 still manage to continue resuming from hibernate mode to normal computing mode. Windows 7 operating may still working fine after re-starting up and resume from hibernation, but the error message can be an annoyance on every resume from hibernation mode.
