Compaq Presario V3019AU freezing.

Hi I've had my Compaq Presario V3019AU notebook for while but recently it has started to freeze and they only way to restart is by removing the battery as not even the off botton works,
This started to happen about the same time I started to use a wireless broadband connection but i'm not sure if that is related to that problem.

Hope you can Help

I have a Presario V2000 and have a similar issue. It freezes and then I can actually hold the power button for 3-5 seconds and it shuts down. But as you can imagine its a RPITA!!

I have replaced the HDD & re-imaged. Still the same thing. I have read on similar message board as this that it could be a bad memory module.
I upgraded the RAM recently but they were not new sticks (Only bigger capacity), so this might be the case.

How much memory do you have?
It might be worth trying. I think I will upgrade for mine, if it works I'll let you know.
