Seems like the program that controls your special keys (volume control) causes your computer to freeze!
I would recommend reinstalling the drivers/application for it. Try this download and let me know what happened: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-31502-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=435618

I have got a hp pavilion dv5000, when I turn on it the screen goes blank.
Power led glows, I hear for a few time the fan, disk led flashes intermittently and also I feel that the DVD player tries to load.
If I try to click on caps lock or num lock, leds don't respond to commands. I tried the hard reset pressing the power button for 30 seconds with the battery and the power removed. Nothing to be done by connecting an external monitor....
I have a Dell Studio laptop and sometimes some buttons become not responsive, including the power button. As for power button, I noticed that if you hold it for a few seconds, the laptop will turn on (at least in my case). The fix that works for me is as follows:
1. Turn the laptop off; 2. Disconnect the charger and take out the battery; 3. Wait for a few seconds; 4. Open the laptop lid (as you probably closed it while taking out the battery), push the power button and hold it for a few seconds. Nothing will happen as the laptop won't have any power, but it clears some sort of electrostatic load or whatever it's called; 5. Put the battery back in and turn on the laptop.
I used this for a few times, so perhaps it'll help in your case as well.
Go to the control panel > Power Options, click on the hibernation tab and uncheck it. Click on apply and ok. Hibernation can damage older HP systems such as the DV1000 that is running XP, make sure it is turned off and also go through the power settings and change the setting for closing the lid on the laptop. Change the setting to "Do Nothing". This will keep your system from getting corrupt.
disconnect any power remove battery .remove mem and check the mem slots for dust and debris replace mem.remove hd check connections(hd pins)check connecter for dust.refit ;make sure properly housed.reboot,enter bios.reset to default.save settings and exit.pc should now restart.any indications of fault maybe mentioned at startup if not window should boot
Have you checked device manager? You may try reinstalling the driver through device manager? Check the audio properties in sound.
you May be try running a virus/spyware scan. When something suddenly goes out its either dead, corrupt driver or virus/spyware/highjacker etc.
Let me know what happens.
This is because your inbuilt microphone is probably set at boost, and picking up the sound of speakers.
Go to speaker icon in task bar an select 'Open volume control' and click on options, then advanced controls, then click mute on the microphone slider control.
