This issue could be due to presence of static charges or internal hardware malfunction of the notebook. To isolate the exact cause of the issue, perform the steps provided below.

Step 1: Hard Reset

To perform a hard reset, please follow the steps listed below:

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.


This will discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now turn on the notebook and check for the issue. If the issue persists, then remove and reseat the memory modules of the notebook and check for the issue.

Step 2: Remove and Reseat the Memory Modules

You can refer the service manual provided below for information to remove and reseat the memory modules of the notebook.

Refer page no: 52 & 53
NOTE: PDF manuals require the Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing.
If the issue persists after the above steps, then this could be due to internal hardware malfunction of the notebook and requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician. If your notebook is covered under HP Standard Warranty, then I would request you to contact HP Support to get your notebook repaired under warranty.

I believe the information provided would be helpful to isolate the issue with your notebook.

    The G60 line of laptops had a bios issue when going to sleep or leaving them in sleep mode once the battery runs out they will not turn back on. I also have a G60 there is a bios update from HP that eliminates this problem. If you remove the battery and cord, hold down the power button for 5 seconds it will allow you to turn it back on once the battery and or cord is attached. Here is a link for the bios update:

First 2 of your problems are due to the fact that your laptop enters hibernation (or hybrid sleep in windows 7) and windows cannot restore your last saved state. The 3rd problem indicates you have windows problems (bad/not updated drivers, filesystem corruption, application issues). I would suggest you to reinstall windows.
