Laptop does not boot from restore point

Recently I bought Fujitsu Lifebook A531. It does not resuming after hibernating; stuck with a blink in black screen. Is this hardware problem or software problem? OS is Windows 7 64 bit

Have you tried system repair in safe mode or last good configuration.

If you get into safe mode and CMD you can type rstrui.exe into that and it takes you to system restore.

Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts for safe mode.

Back to factory settings is F 12 I believe but only as a last resort.

@buteman what i did was just hibernate the pc. then next time it didn't boot up. I didn't make any restore point. Is this just software or hardware(Hard drive) failure? Thank you for supporting.

Power options may be corrupt but it does sound like software problems. Try removing the battery and mains power. Press and hold the power button in for a minute. Connect the power adapter only and try to boot again. You may get a screen asking to repair the startup or run Windows normally.

@rdave13 PC is booted when I shutdown the PC. But problem remains after hibernating. PC is working; but does not booted up after hibernating.

@chur_tor My settings are just like the settings you posted. Nothing changers.

This problem can sometimes be related to a Graphics driver - try updating it via Device Manager.

Further down in the link that I sent you was this suggestion "I have solved this problem simply switching BIOS option ACPI SUSPEND TYPE to S3". Might be worth a try to see if your BIOS has that option.

It is not graphic driver problem. I update it, Nothing happens.

Did you check the BIOS ACPI suspend options?
