Re: Why does my Hp Pavilion dv6000 keep freezing on me?
Lockups are USUALLY related to memory problems. You could have incorrect (wrong type of or too much) or defective memory. You should see what memory is installed (in a compartment on the bottom of the notebook). and see if it's correct, first. Go to www.crucial.com and use the Memory Advisor Tool. If your memory is the right kind, and there are two modules, remove one at a time to see if that fixes the problem. If so, replace the one that is out when the notebook works okay. If neither solves the problem, try borrowing a module..
Memory CAN be damaged by voltage spikes. If you are not using a surge protector with your notebook, you need to be doing so. Single-socket models are available.

sounds like a faulty USB driver - i recommend uninstalling all USB drivers and using drivermax.com to get the correct ones. Your computer may have automatically updated your drivers incorrectly without you knowing.
Laptops have very few moving parts. Your problem is more than likely either a fan or your hard drive. Remove the hard drive, start the computer up and just let it run for awhile. If the clicking noise never comes up then thats your problem. If it does, its probably a fan.
Disregard anything on the screen itself, just let the PC run. It sounds like after the hard drive has been spinning for a minute a motor starts to die.
