SOURCE: desktop freezes and can't do anything!!!!!

Freezes and crashes are generally caused by some sort of instability in the computer system.

The following is a list of specific problems that can cause instability along with what to check when troubleshooting each.
Viruses can cause instability.
Run a virus check on the computer to look for a possible virus.

Conflicts can cause instability.
Check the Windows Device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks or red Xs beside the listings for device classifications. If there are, contact Tech Support.

Buggy or damaged software applications can cause instability.
If the system is less stable when certain software programs are running, shut down those programs and see if the problem continues to occur. If the problems stop, chances are that those software programs are causing the problems.

Buggy, outdated, or conflicting drivers can cause instability.
Check manufacturer web sites for updated device drivers for the various devices installed on the computer system, such as: printer drivers, modem drivers, video drivers, sound drivers, USB device drivers, etc.
Update one driver at a time and see if the system stabilizes. If this doesn't work, it may be a hardware problem, so contact Tech Support.

AC problems can cause instability.
Check to see if the computer system is plugged into an overloaded outlet.
Make sure the computer system is plugged into a surge suppressor.

The installation of new devices can cause instability.
There are three typical symptoms that point to this problem:
The computer system fails to boot, freezes during a boot, or freezes during an operation for no apparent reason.
The system fails to recognize the newly installed device.
One or more software applications fail to function as expected after an upgrade.

Some Tips for Dealing with Freezes and Crashes
Keep track of the hardware and software that is added to a computer.
The addition of new hardware and software can often cause problems to occur.

Research the compatibility of new hardware and software with the existing computer system before purchase and installation.

The older a PC, the more likely it is to crash.

When a computer freezes or crashes, chances are that changes made after the last save and when the freeze or crash occurred will be lost.

*************************************************
I suggest to you do the follow:

Start up your computer and before windows load hit F8, then select SAVE MODE

On SAVE MODE, uninstall all innecesary programs or recently installed, Clean your computer, and be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

After that reboot and work normally
This will be fixing your problem.

If the problem after that continues is probably then that your have some hardware issue.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Display and Boot problem with HP Pavilion DV2125NR

It is normal for the bottom to get hot. The fan should keep it cool enough to run, but it sounds like perhaps your fan is not working very well anymore and should be replaced.

Does the computer act up at all when cool? If not, the first thing I would try is replacing the fan and examining the fan and heatsink assembly for proper installation, perhaps replace the heatsink compound with some Arctic Silver while you have it open.

HP Pavilion DV7 freezing during charging


When your laptop goes on battery power the processor automatically gears down to conserve battery power, but when charger is used the processor goes to full power and you run heavy programs drawing more resources, I suggest you upgrade your ram because heavy gaming uses more ram memory.

It may be caused by overheating. Overheating is the main problem with HP portables. Use a fan to cool down the computer and check how long it last working. If blowing air with a fan "Appears to fix the problem" stop using the computer and get maintenance service for it. The processor area needs to be cleaned.

I have a 4510s and had this problem before.
Part of the problem was synaptics driver was freezing, Driver Synaptics software upgrade may help if that is part of your problem.

Have you opened the notebook to upgrade or remove the HDD for any reason?
If so, you should make sure the plastic of the palmrest (which houses the touchpad mouse) has been correctly fitted back in place. It may also help to remove the palmrest and ensure the flexible cable is correctly inserted in the ZIF connector.
I also notice there are some contact points from the PC to the underside of the trackpad, it may pay to clean those with metho to make sure the electrical connection is good.
