When on the internet, computer freezes up frequently, not responding, why? I ran diagnostics and when testing the hard drive, there is an error code. OFOO:0244 msg: block 26318316, I don't know if this has anything to do with the internet freezing up when i'm online.

I think I've got it (famous last words) but you aren't going to like it.  I'm running linux and that has it's own issues with keeping the GUI working but I noticed the 1100 also locks up in Windows.  Latest BIOS.  Tried the fresh heat sink paste, cleaned the fins, even running a CPU low-impact GUI called Xfce.  Fan control is good.  Still froze.  Now I've gone several boots and hours without a freeze.  How?  Remove the Flash player.  Told you you wouldn't like it.  I've been running the (linux) Epiphany browser and haven't had a freeze since.  I think the people who speculate that the on-board video has a design flaw or overheats are on the right track.

Check to see if your laptops overheating. Check to see if the fan/heatsink assembly is clogged..

Run chkdsk /r from your command prompt, let it reboot to run..

I just bought a all in one hp &turn it on and say operating system not found ran test error#BIOHD-8


That diagnostic indicates that the hard drive is failing. If you just bought this new, I would suggest returning it for another one. If you bought it used, I'd try to get a refund.

One bad lead will cause your computer to shut down or continue in a cycle
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive

Hi,

My name is Armymason, have you thought about running a hardware diagnostic test? Do a search on the internet for a free one and check to see if the hard drive is bad.
