Default Hyperlink not working

After searching and trying everywhere on the internet i have reached this forum.hope i get a solution.
I have a MS Word 2010.
I created a word doc xyz.docx and save it folder ABC
I create another folder DEF under ABC and copy 10 word documents in it.
In the doc xyz i create relative hyperlinks to these 10 word documents.


These hyperlinks work fine but if i lock my laptop and unlock it (keeping the doc xyz open) the hyperlinks stop working.
If i close and reopen the xyz doc,the hyperlink work again.

I have tried everything from like below :
Method 1: Word 2010
  1. On the File menu, click Options.
  2. Click Advanced.
  3. Under General, click Web Options.
  4. Click the Files tab.
  5. Click to clear the Update links on save check box.
  6. Click OK two times.
And checked the hyperlink base but that did not help.

Any suggestions?

Your description suggests the problem is related to the lock/unlock function on your laptop that doesn't reactivate the Word document correctly. Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Programs & Features > Microsoft Office > Change in the Windows Control Panel)? I'm not sure that would work, though, as the problem might be at a more basic level, involving Windows itself and/or your hardware.

I don't have that issue with my laptop, so a repair might work although, as I said, the problem might be at a more basic level, involving Windows itself and/or your hardware. It certainly won't do any harm to try the repair...

PS: Please don't post questions about the same issue in multiple forums. I have deleted your other thread.
