Desktop freezes and can't do anything!!!!!

I have a HP Pavillion dv1000 NoteBook purchased in DEC 2006.
It worked for about 8 months and now upon signing onto my comp. and the desktop opens, The bottom toolbar loads most programs and then the hour glass comes on upon running the mouse over any desktop programs or even the start menu. It won't even let you click on anything ( it freezes ).
Also it won't do anything upon trying to sign off, even if CTRL, ALT, DEL is pressed repeatedly.
Please help.

Freezes and crashes are generally caused by some sort of instability in the computer system.

The following is a list of specific problems that can cause instability along with what to check when troubleshooting each.
Viruses can cause instability.
Run a virus check on the computer to look for a possible virus.

Conflicts can cause instability.
Check the Windows Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs beside the listings for device classifications. If there are, contact Tech Support.

Buggy or damaged software applications can cause instability.
If the system is less stable when certain software programs are running, shut down those programs and see if the problem continues to occur. If the problems stop, chances are that those software programs are causing the problems.

Buggy, outdated, or conflicting drivers can cause instability.
Check manufacturer web sites for updated device drivers for the various devices installed on the computer system, such as: printer drivers, modem drivers, video drivers, sound drivers, USB device drivers, etc.
Update one driver at a time and see if the system stabilizes. If this doesn't work, it may be a hardware problem, so contact Tech Support.

AC problems can cause instability.
Check to see if the computer system is plugged into an overloaded outlet.
Make sure the computer system is plugged into a surge suppressor.

The installation of new devices can cause instability.
There are three typical symptoms that point to this problem:
The computer system fails to boot, freezes during a boot, or freezes during an operation for no apparent reason.
The system fails to recognize the newly installed device.
One or more software applications fail to function as expected after an upgrade.

Some Tips for Dealing with Freezes and Crashes
Keep track of the hardware and software that is added to a computer.
The addition of new hardware and software can often cause problems to occur.

Research the compatibility of new hardware and software with the existing computer system before purchase and installation.

The older a PC, the more likely it is to crash.

When a computer freezes or crashes, chances are that changes made after the last save and when the freeze or crash occurred will be lost.

*************************************************
I suggest to you do the follow:

Start up your computer and before windows load hit F8, then select SAVE MODE

On SAVE MODE, uninstall all innecesary programs or recently installed, Clean your computer, and be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

After that reboot and work normally
This will be fixing your problem.

If the problem after that continues is probably then that your have some hardware issue.

It sounds like you were the victim of an E-Mail prank that someone sent you through your e-mail and you opened it unaware of the prank. Something like a virus only not serious, it's a prank. I had one where I had to chase my Icons all over the display and never could catch them. If this is the case, then somewhere in the four corners of your monitor is the release for the prank. search the corners all over real good until the invisible release appears and follow the instructions or click. Then find the funny guy and pay backs are a M............. Good Luck.

The screen is black on start up. No image at all.


The dv1000's were a limited edition notebook withmany issues. the motherboard going on them was one of them. connect the motebook to a desktop monitor if you have one and simultaneously press Fn + F4 to use the monitor as a screen. If nothing happens begin crying. Time to buy a new laptop. You information is safe but you need an IDE/SATA PCI adapter to view the files on another computer. If you were using XP, i hope you didn't password protect it making it private. That will be problem number 2.

Hp pavillion dv1000 cd rom drive


memphisrains -

Sounds as though you may need to reinstall the driver for the laptop's cdrom drive. The easiest way I've found to do this is to download it directly from the manufacturer's web site; In your case, look here:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-31831-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=435618&os=228&lang=en

Download the file to your desktop (file name is sp30367.exe), and run the installation to reinstall & update the DVD/CD-ROM drivers.

Hope this helps!
