[Bug 1397277] Re: Kernel dead after suspend/resume at i915


olegon.ru, as per http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5229499&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4059 an update to your BIOS is available (F.50). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?  If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, then please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.

  Suspend by menu at right upper corner. Waits... Wake up by button. Wallpaper and logon screen is appeared, periodically I can login and begin work, but not more than 5 seconds and system completely freezed. I can stay at login screen without keypress and its freezed too after some seconds.
  No mouse, keyboard, led or ssh activity is allowed. Kernel dead.
  Using fglrx or fglrx-updates it's no problem with suspend and resume, while using discrete card (not workaround for me). 

  I disabled Radeon card (in BIOS) and using i915. All fglrx and fglrx-
  updates is completely removed, xorg-radeon too.

  kernel option i915.modeset=0 resumed without hangs (but with black
  screen), and nomodeset too.

  tried to create xorg.conf with uxa

  but hangs too :(

  Hibernation works without any problem.

  Tried latest Linux Mint (booting with usb-stick) - hangs on
  suspend/resume too. Sometimes ago can suspend/resume at Windows 7, but
  I hate this OS.

  I suffered to resolve this problem last three days...
