Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

Freezes when jostled

My laptop will occasionally freeze when jostled or nudged, or sometimes freeze until it is jostled or nudged. I can solve the problem by applying pressure or tapping the laptop, usually just to the right of the touchpad. I have a feeling that something has come loose inside the laptop. Does anyone have an idea of what is wrong and how to fix it?

Re: Freezes when jostled

Sounds like a connection to the hard drive may be loose.

No matter what it is it will have to be taken apart to fix.

Laptop freezes occasionally...

Download and install the FREE version of Malwarebytes (linked below). Check for and allow it to install an updated definition file. Scan the PC and delete / quarantine any adware / malware / etc. found. Reboot and repeat. Make sure you have an antivirus running too - Security Essentials from Microsoft is also linked below.

How do I stop Skype freezing oon my laptop ?

Try This:

CTRL+ALT+Del this will open Windows Task Manager Under Application tab right click on Skype and left click on "Go To Process"
Left click on End Process. this will stop Skype without rebooting the PC.

After opening Skype does ALL programs Freeze? If so then its probly Malware running on the PC.
Reboot the PC into safe mode and run a full scan with your antivirus program.

J-nine, It certainly looks like you have one...Download spybot and adaware. And run them and your updated virusscanner in safe mode, so the adware will not start up with windows.Please let me know how you make out.
