Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

Crashes and now unable to startup properly

Hey, just todaymy HP Pavillion dv9000 (running windows vista 32 bit home edition) laptop has started playing up. While playing WoW I got a crash, where my screen froze and the sound playing was stuck in a loop, I couldnt do anything but reset the laptop by the switch.

Thinking it was a one off, I rebooted and started playing again, and the same problem again. I was using Ventrilo, Itunes and WoW at the same time, and I've NEVER had any problems before with this kind of thing.

I rebooted again and installed the latest sound driver, Conextant High Definition audio, ran spyware and addaware scans just incase. I began playing again, and the SAME problem.

I rebooted again, and began looking on the internet. I assumed this was a technical hitch in WoW itself, but upon watching a video online. My screen suddenly goes pixelly and little bits of colour appear everyone, along with it freezing and the sound looping. I reboot again and find I cannot get past the loading bar of windows Vista. (As in the little circle icon with the windows logo in it never pops up along with the sound).

I have been trying for the last couple of hours to get back back on my pc, but each time I reboot I get stuck on a black screen after the loading bar. I've run the startup fixer thing, used the restore point, scanned memory drives and everything but to no avail. I can sometimes choose the option to run it in safe mode, although I cannot choose the option much as it usually comes up with either 'Start windows normally' or run 'Startup fixer' (or whatever its called).

This may be and issue with sound, as the errors seem to occured because of that, but the display issues may also be part of it.

Anyone able to help would be GREATLY appreciated, this sucks :(

    For me, I had just downloaded the update for my blackberry curve and was downloading the update to my mobile. It worked fine, then I decided to add some pictures and songs too. Mid picture transfer my screen turns blue and sais STOP and PHYSICAL DUMP OF MEMORY! I try again and again and agin to start my computer, sometimes its just black with a little blinky underscore in the left corner, sometimes it lets me repair, then it does, then 5 minutes later the same thing again, sometimes it lets me start to scan files then it crashes again! WHAT CAN I DO?!

Laptop performance is very slow to open and close am using using windows vista home with 32 bit


Try changing the setting of your computer. I use vista 32 bit and it'a fast.
The specs of my laptop is dual core processor T3200, (2.0GHZ), 667 MHz Fsb, 1mb(cache)
Moblie intel Graphics media accelerator 4500. And it's really fast when i changed my setting.

Here is my instruction to make your computer fast.

1. click start menu
2. Control panel
3. search for performance on your search box
4. click performance info tools
5. click adjust visual effect
6. click the box with best performance

and there it will go like it is a CPU.

Dell inspiron 1525 w/ Vista 32 will not hibernate


Hibernate issues are generally an issue with the Video driver. Try the following: Update to the latest list of drivers from support.dell.com BIOS Video Driver see if the issue is resolved. If not, then try editing the startup group of MSCONFIG and see if an item running at startup is causing the issue. (Start, RUN, MSCONFIG, OK to open MSCONFIG)

Are they the same - windows vista 32 bit platform edition and windows vista home basic 32 bit sp1


Yes and no. Think of 'platform' as a general header when looking at operating architectures (there are different types) and Vista choices.
Vista choices under the 'platform' 32-bit are:
• Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit
• Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
• Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
• Windows Vista Business 32-bit
• Windows Vista Enterprise 32-bit

Another example of the "64-bit platform" and Vista choices are:

• Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition
• Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition
