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?

    My motherboard freezes up and I had to replace it, and it still has the same problem. HP Pavilion sucks.

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!

My hp pavillion a420n keeps shuting off and turning itself on every once and a while. Also othe flash keeps crashing and programs keep failing. Any clue what it may be telling me?????


Hardware failure - the voltage to the processor is unstable because either the PSU or the rectifiers on the motherboard have aged. Open the case and look at the motherboard - if some of the capacitors on it are bloated then you will have either to replace them or the entire board. If the capacitors are fine in there then the fault is in the PSU - you can get a new one for less than $20 at every pc shop.

What video card can i buy for my computer ? I have a HP Pavilion a1120n . It already has an internal video card , but i want to upgrade . Its a Intel (R) 82915G / GV / 910GL Express Chipset with 128 mb...


I suggest you install an AGP video card that suits your requirements. If you play games that require a powerful graphics card, then I recommend the G Force range of graphics cards. A computer shop can recommend to you a graphics card depending upon what programs you are running on your computer. The games programs usually recommends a graphic card with their games.
Don't forget to disable/turn off the on-board graphics card in the BIOS if you use an external graphics card.

Hp pavillion a1120n wont auto read cds


This would mean that autostart is not turned on many programs will turn this on for you like Apples iTunes.

You can turn it off using TweakUI powertool if you use WinXP Home, howeverthe best way is to use a reg tweak to turn it ON however I suggest that you keep it OFF for normal use;

Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Then go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Create a new value called: NoDriveTypeAutoRun
Type is: DWORD
Value is: 0x000000b1 (177)


If you use WinXP Professional and feel up to changinf your templates you can enter the Group Policy window.

You should select Administrative Templates \ System in the tree view: grouppol.png You will see an item in the right side pane called “Turn off Autoplay”

autopnotconf.png
Double click the item, and set the radio button to Enabled, and change the “Turn off Autoplay on” to All Drives.

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.

I have an HP Pavillion m9600t with Windows 7. Sometimes when i try to play games the sound crackles and progressively gets worse until the computer freezes. Any thoughts?


This seems to be a problem more with Realtec onboard sound than with a stand alone soundcard. You can try either updating the Realtec driver or using the generic windows driver and forget using the realtec functions. But with my computer the only true fix was to disable onboard sound and install a soundcard. Hope this helps.

Extended Warranty for HP Pavillion A1120N


A warranty is a contract between the Buyer (You) and the Seller (Retailer, Wholesaler, or Manufacturer/Hewlett Packard?). If you don't have a copy of your warranty, then you'll have to contact (Via phone, mail, or website) Hewlett Packard or whomever your warranty is with, and with your model and serial number you should be able to find out the date you request.

Good luck.
