Must hold HP laptop at awkward angles for it to work

I have a HP laptop dv 4000, and I must hold it at weird angles for it to function. If I put in the normal position it freezes up, but once I put it in the akward angle it works again.

You have a serious issue with your motherboard. I suggest you take it to a repair facility to see why the fan is cutting off or the machines GPU is overheating and cutting off. The awkward angle sounds like an issue with a connector or fan being suffocated.

Good Luck!

I have an hp pavilion dv 4000 and the cursor sticks and when I close the screen and then reopen, sometimes it works, but then it sticks again.

Check the cable that attaches your touch pad to the motherboard.

It may have come lose and so when you close the screen the moevement realigns it, until you move the laptop again and it comes lose again.

I need bluetooth driver hp pavilion dv 4000

Go to the HP website and download the driver. You can either autodetect or put your model in. It will show you the drivers which are available for your system. You will need to put in whether you are running XP or Vista etc to get the appropriate version of the driver. You will need to download the one you need and then run it. A reboot will probably be required afterwards

Run system restore to factory default.

Start the system and hold down the f11 key till you hear a beep. Then follow the onscreen instructions.

Good luck.
