Question about HP Compaq Presario 700Z Notebook
There is a known issue with these laptops that casues the CPU to not cool correctly. There was a fix supplied by Compaq that helps, but doesn't always totally correct the problem. This kit currently listed on Ebay under item #6862252317 Have you upgraded the memory? This can also cause issues, even when you use original Compaq ram. If you have, try running it without the upgrade and see if the lockups still occur.

1.-update yours chipset driver via VIAarena 2..-update your se twister video driver 3.-remove from your laptop the fallowing file from micrisoft:Q317277 4.-disk index off 5.-video mem at 16MB. 6.-For myself, I am not using synaptics driver, I removed and auctomatically use microsoft touch pad driver.I increased my page file size to 950. Let me advise all you, it is a recipe, I tried upgrading only drivers, and then I get some freezing,only after I removed windows update file:Q317277 i got to be free of crashing also, please update your battery and firmware driver from compaq. in addition to all that, i took my laptop apart and replace the *lousy* thermal pad with arctic silver 3. Works like a charm now - only recommended if your warranty expired Good luck!
