Freezing after resuming from display being off.

Hi there,
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on an older Compaq Presario r4000. I never used to have this problem, but one day and auto update told me it was patching a problem with the OS freezing after resuming from sleep.

Ever since then, if I let my monitor turn off, the OS is forzen for a good 3-4minutes. I don't mean resuming from sleep or hibernate, just simply allowing my monitor to turn off after 5mins of being idle, the machine is still on and running.

I don't have this problem on my deskptop, or my media center pc. Just my laptop.

Any ideas or threads you can point me to would be awesome! Thanks

Asus has the BIOS up to version 1017.

Applying that may be one of the first steps to try.
