Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
I am running Vista Home and have 3 GB RAM. No weird stuff on the HDD: just MS Office and a few other siumple things. The brand new notebook hangs every half hour like he was a 90 year old man chasing a playboy bunny on foot and that is regardless of what software/application I am running. Then after two minutes the notebook catches his breath and starts to run again. I had Norton Internet Security and took it off (in case Norton was slowing it down) but the notebook behaves the same with AVG.
Two things you need to do. Next time it hangs do a ctr-alt-delete and end program. This will end it properly so it does not become corrupt. Next (you can do this now) go into Control Panel and click on Administrative Tools. Click on Event Viewer and Applications. You will see a list of applications, scroll down the list and see if you can find when your notebook had an error the last time. Right click on the Notebook and click on Details. It will give you a reason it is hanging up. You can go to the Microsoft Website and type that code in and on the Knowledge Base it will tell you a fix.
