NEW COMPAQ PRESARIO CQ70 HANGS

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.

I have a compaq presario V6105NR and it currently has a 2.5 inch 5200 RPM 100GB hard drive, i am looking to upgrade to a 7200 RPM 320GB internal drive and all i wanted to know was if my system will support...


Apparently the HP notebook model 441424-001 has a 200 GB HDD in it, I couldn't locate any specifications to what HDD size is the maximum supported by the BIOS of this laptop. I would say you are safe with anything under 500 GB.

On the HP website there's only information about RAM upgrade: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3250961&

Can someone suggest which is the best brand of laptop to buy?


Just blindly go for any latest DELL laptop.
Don't think that I am a promoter or anything like that, if you trust me I am a computer professional and I have had used several laptops, at my work and home. I have been using DELL lattitude for more than two years, I have upgraded it timely .. Its performance is just awesome, likewise Battery backup (2 hrs:45 mnts) after more than 2 years, brightness even the DVD Combo drive everything is just perfect.I have upgraded the RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB and HDD from 60GB to 120 GB.
Now rest is your Choice and obviously your luck if you believe :)
Take Care and All the best.

Performance of presario c772tu


you may have other bottleneck... maybe the XP you're using doesn't utilizes the multi core in your computer or maybe office 2007 is not enjoying your ram size? these are just few factors that can affect your system performance.
