HP Pavillion Programs freezing

I have an HP Pavillion a1120n desktop and have been having a progressively worse problem with programs failing to open or quickly become non-responsive. This happens with MS Word, Excel and most often with Explorer. I am running Windows XP and using MS Office 2003. Any suggestions?

Suggest restoring the system to factory settings. You will lose all of your data so back it up first.

Restore is either on disks or on recovery partition of hard drive. If you have recovery disks put first one in and reboot computer.

When the computer starts you should see an option to hit F10 for System Restore/Recovery. Hit F10, click advanced settings and choose Destructive Restore. Follow the prompts.

Will need to reload all programs after restore is done that did not come with computer such as Office.

Hope this helps.
Thanks!

Hp pavillion dv2000 freezes always but at different times-sometimes i can be on for a few minutes other times maybe 30 minutes before it freezes up it has been sent to hp 2 or 3 times and they cant find...


It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out

How do i get my web cam to come up on my computer and how can you put pics on a file


Hello,

click start menu, click all programs, from the list of programs, look out for Cyber shot, click it and that's the webcam.

After you have finished taking pics, a cyber shot folder would have been created in "My Documents". Open it and you will find the pics you snapped there.

Although not all Hp pavillion uses Cyber shot, but just check all programs, you will find the web cam there.

Take care.

My HP Pavillion laptop keeps coming up with low disk space and I have disk clean up and defrag it many times.


You might just have too many programs loaded onto it. You should look through the "Add or remove programs" list and see if there are any programs that you do not need to have installed. Good luck!

I am unable to open internet and programs


Could be a virus. Can you start up in safe mode? If so try that (F8 on reboot and choose safe mode). Once up in safe mode run a full virus scan.

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.
