I would recommend downloading an un-cracked copy of the operating system that you need. Burn it onto a DVD and use the CD key off of the bottom of your laptop. Make sure that you download a copy that does not already have the key inserted and that it is not an OEM copy. You can use that CD to either repair or re-install windows.

Hp laptop freezes and the screen goes blue with a crashdown message

If you haven't done anything to it recently, the most likely culprits are: 1) an infection (virus, trojan, malware, etc.) 2) Failing hard drive, or 3) faulty memory. Unless you know how to diagnose and correct these problems yourself, you are going to need professional help. If it's still under warranty, call the manufacturer. If not, find someone you know near you that knows computer HARDWARE, or a local shop.

This seems like a hardware problem and since the laptop is just one day old you are entitled to get a complete exchange for the laptop.You need to carry the laptop to nearest HP service center who will certify that the system was dead On Arrival (DOA) and once it is been certified from the hp service center as DOA you can take the system to the store from where you purchased this laptop and get it exchanged.

I have the HP Pavilion dv7 laptop and I need to put pictures from my computer onto a SD card. When I plug a card in, however, NOTHING happens and my computer doesn't even acknowlege that the card is in....

it sounds like the SD card reader has failed. This fortunately is a quick, semi-cheap (~$20) fix. You can purchase a media card reader that plugs into the USB on your system for about 20. If your system is in warranty, I would contact and see if they could schedule a replacement part or a depot fix/tech call to replace the failed drive

HP Pavilion Laptop shutsdown randomly, need help.

This looks like a bad memory stick. That looks like a memory address where the error occurs. Keep track of the messages you get and see if they are similar. If it's a memory address you may run the computer for quite some time or a short time till you use enough system resourses to fill up the ram to that bad address then it will die. The confusing part is it shows the program or device that was loaded into ram that failed and sometimes you think it's that program or device rather than the ram that caused it. In this example it shows possibly 4 addresses. 40000080 8A57DAD0 89FF6F30 8A234F44
Three of those are pretty close together. If you see more that start with 8A or 8B I'm maybe right.
