Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Desktop and Task bar disappearing

My Sony Vaio laptop, purchased in August 2006, has been acting strangely lately. Upon startup, it's very slow to open folders. I gave it a few days rest, but it still won't connect to internet or open any kinds of files. If I keep trying to open folders the entire desktop disappears as well as the task bar. Right now I can't even open up task manager. Is there any way to salvage the files I haven't yet backed up?

    Thanks to you both, I rebooted the computer in safe mode, ran antivirus and now it is working perfectly!

    I believe you have a virus, not a disk problem. If you can boot your computer to safe mode and run your virus checker you may have the problem fixed. IF you need a free virus checker, one is available at www.ewido.com

    Please let me know if this works for you.

You computer is infected by the spyware virus try to run in the safemode and download and install spyware doctor of pctools also the registry mechanic this two utilities is very helpful in term of spyware virus. But sometime if your computer infected by the UST.AVI virus you cannot install any program even the anti virus. The virus automatically close any program you install to prevent the anti virus to install in the system. If this happen the only way to salvage the files is reinstall the windows in the other directory then after you finished install windows. You can copy now the the files in the old directory copy of the windows your needed files. and delete the old windows directory permanently.

Make sure the fan, heatsink, vents are clean. Replace Thermal Paste if needed. Try a restore to a date before this issue. Have you done ANY updates? Any damage? Try rolling back the Graphics Driver. Is it a Nvidia Graphic Adapter?

Generally there are many reasons causing your Sony Vaio laptop or desktop PC running slow or freezing. For example, lack of free disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc. There are manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy, and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a quick yet easy fix solution, as you can see here: http://www.sonyvaioslow.com/

Sony Vaio runs very slow and tends to hang when trying to standby. I reinstalled the OS and drivers and still no luck.


runs slow doing what? task manager would help(right click at very bottom of screen for menu, select task manager, and click on performance tab. see what the CPU and page files are doing(if more than 75% up scale, then the problem lies elsewhere).

Slow performance


System resources at 75% on idle only gives you 25% to work your notebook. Sony VAIO PCG-K25 Laptop 2.8 GHz Pentium 4, 512 MB RAM should be plenty to run most OS and programs. The OS, software and accessories attached to your laptop are utilizing 75% of your resources on startup. You may want to do some maintenance, check your processes on startup & carefully remove any not being used, check your networking usage, good antivirus & spyware cleaning, clean & defrag your hard drive, remove some of your files & programs,and upgrade your memory.

start your machine...when the sony screen disappears press F8 (to get safe mode options) one of these options is a vista startup repair....choose that one.....takes a couple of minutes to fix and boot into windows so be patient....the reason you have this problem is the user profile has become corrupt but windows vista corrects this with startup repair

No task bar or icons only desktop picture


start up in safe mode by pushing the f8 key on startup this will give you networking capabilities then follow these instructions

Hijackthis is a first line tool to examine certain areas of the computer. It does not show everything and lots of malware is hidden from it

To download Hijackthis

go to http://www.merijn.org/programs.php and download 'Hijack This!' self installer. Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Fan Running, computer heating, task bar disappearing, everything is slow


It sounds like you've already started doing some things that can help you discover what is causing this problem, and that's good, but before I offer any more ideas, can you please tell me two things:

1. How much RAM (memory) does your computer have?

2. How much total hard disk space does your computer have, and of that, how much is available?
