Spica: Black Screen redux

It happened again this morning. I did some searching, and I'm not the only one having this problem.

One person noticed that it was happening 10 minutes after he woke from hibernation, so for the time being I'm not going to use hibernation.

Another guy said that Asus Live Update was the villain. That's a function I don't want, anyway, so I just uninstalled it.

And I used "Autoruns" to turn off a bunch of other ASUS cruft.

Search engine keywords: ASUS G75V black screen reboot crash

UPDATE: Three days later: I think it was Asus Live Update which was the problem. Since I uninstalled it I haven't had a single crash.

UPDATE: Last night I turned "hibernation" back on again. This morning I got another black screen crash, the first in several days. It's evident that's a problem, and I've turned hibernation back off again.

1 Uh-oh. Is Asus walking into the Dark Side? (Had a better liking for Asus, Gateway and Dell nowadays)

No black screens since I did this. I'm hopeful.

I can well believe that Asus Live Update was the villain. The behavior didn't make sense as a hardware problem.
