i have an hp compaq nx4800 laptop which diplats ounce on booting and then off,i dont its problem


try to go in safe mode or choose last known good configration 

In safe mode, go to start->run, type in msconfig, and the system configuration window will come up.

First, try clicking on startup and say disable all, then say apply. Try restarting your computer and loading it normally, and see if it lets you get anywhere. If it does, you can go back into msconfig and start enabling startup items again until you find the one that is messing you up.

If that didn't work, try going back into msconfig, keep all the startup items disabled, and click on the services tab. check the box saying hide all microsoft services, then click on disable all, and hit apply. Try restarting into Windows normally again, if it works, then again, you have to figure out which service/startup items are affecting your boot up.

If that didn't work either, then you may have a graphics card issue. Where does it stop when you try to load Windows normally?

computer freezes when using mouse within MS Outlook (mainly) or while on internet.


This is possible caused by services (could be from viruses/spyware, recently-installed software or an old corrupted file for a program) running in the background.

Run a virus scan. Download this software if you dont have an antivirus software.

If it doesnt find anything. Restore your computer to a date when it was working fine using system restore.

Through the All Programs menu:
1.
Click Start.
2.
Point to All Programs.
3.
Point to Accessories.
4.
Point to System Tools.
5.
Click System Restore.
6.
Follow the instructions on the wizard.


If nogo, disable your startup items. This will disable unnecessary startup items from starting and up and running in the bakcground when you dont need them. It doesnt change anything. It just lets you open any program only when you want to.
1. Go to start>run. Type msconfig and hit ok. Click on the startup tab which is on top of the window. Click disable all. if you are using an antivirus and wireless internet. Look for items that has something to do with your antivirus and that has the word 'wireless' in it and check them.
2. Click apply, close and restart.

Hope this works.
