You may have a virus. Go to and use this resource to clean up your machine. Get a good anti-virus going. Next, go to the accessories, system tools on your menu and defrag your machine. You may also want to download Spybot SD or Windows Defender and use it to find any other 'stuff' on your machine that doesn't belong. Both are free.

Why does my computer automatically shut itself down on the same day each week.

There are a couple possibilities...first, when you say shut down, do you mean that it restarts, or it actually shuts completely off? Windows update will auto-run weekly and restart the system if necessary. Otherwise, I'd suspect something with your antivirus scanner settings.

When I see this the first thing I try is start up repair in windows. This is usually an indication of a corrupted driver or bad ACPI driver which controls the shutdown function through power management. Doing a start Up repair and in some cases a Driver reload you can repair this.

I have a HP Pavilion DV9400Z CTO, Model: GD574AV laptop sing Jun2 2007. Originally came with Vista, I have reformatted twice since then, recently did install Windows 7 Ultimate, worked well for a month....


Since the laptop worked without any problems for a month after installing Windows 7, chances of a hardware problem are less.

From the description of the problem it seems that there is some malware/spyware infection or the Windows installation is damaged.

1) Kiindly download and perform a complete scan with a virus/malware removal tool.

You can download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from:

After download and installing the program, kindly update and perform a full scan with the program.

2) If the problem persists, you will have to re-install the OS.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Laptop Freezing Problem

To be honest this still sounds like a fan problem. The freeze will happen if the laptop overheats. Maybe you should have it repaired again by a different company.(ask for the fan to be replaced!)

Try taking the battery out and starting it without the battery. If this doesn't work, contact Compaq (HP) immediately and take advantage of your warranty.

My lap top get hanged after loading windows, when i start it.i have refresh my windows for more then 4 times, even i format my hard disk as well


The problem you have explained here is not the OS problem.

Please don't format your system anymore.

The following may be your problem....
  • when the windows is loaded the system hangs due to interference among various application software like messengers, anti virus etc.
so you should disable the option which execute them at the starting of the system.

so open each software which automatically starts at the starting of the windows and disable the option of automatic starting after boot.

  • The other problem may be your firewall.Disable the firewall and check if system is working fine. if yes the look for the program which the firewall is stopping and disable it.
  • The last reason can be your anti virus which is stopping the execution of certain program. Update the anti virus and scan fully.
i know that you have mentioned that your system completely how you will do all this..right?

For that leave the system idle and keep trying the refresh button.
you can do this with safe mode.

Do end task operation.

hope this will solve your problem.

Thank you

The pointer freezes or starts moving about without any reason, especially when my laptop is carried from one place to another

this is not a software driver issue... many IBM and Dell laptops that have the 'trackpoint" aka pencil eraser head between the G and H keys of your keyboard that control your mouse cursor cause this problem

If your laptop has the TOUCHPAD and the TRACKPOINT cheap fix OPTION #1) is to remove the keyboard and cut the ribbon cable that attaches to the trackpoint. Voila ! Problem solved if you never use the trackpoint (most people use touchpad instead anyways) or you can use external mouse as well. Next option is more realistic for most people...

OPTION #2) Buy a new keyboard cheap on eBay. Search: IBM T42 keyboard. Easy to replace. See this link, easy for even a novice

Hope that helps !
