Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I am the old baggy pants tech and I have found that most of the lockup faults and drop out faults are due to --wait for it -----------power pack faults ,they are not able to supply the the required voltage and current to operate most modems.As they are supplied to the manufactures via a third party suppliers.
So apart from chucking your modem in to land fill there may be nothing wrong with it just replace the power pack with one with more grunt and regulated and be happy!
A foot note(size ten) most wall warts are of a chopper system and they age very quickly so go for one that has a transformer with a regulator built in or find a tech that can knock you one up for a bottle of goon (wine) or Scotch

Yeah Mac's wouldnt give you that problem, Heres the thing the shift key wouldnt be software so either there is something stuck like food or some other foreign material underneath the keyboard or if not its just a bad hardware keyboard and could deal with the controller that connects to the motherboard so a new keyboard is to look at here. The loud beep that it makes is weird If it gets very hot its does have an internal alarm to let the customer know that unit is getting to the alarms beep when it heats. If your wireless isnt working it could be your wireless router , next time it doesnt work on you dont turn off the computers wireless just reset your wireless router by turning it off and then turning it on, if this works you can see it was not the laptop it was just a overburned router they tend to last 1-3 years since they have no internal cooling on these wirelesss routers. The unit locking up could be if you installed something not vista compatible or maybe while something was loaded you clicked around and that usually causes it to stop resonding and so forth. Vista surely is a resource hungry product that does have a bad rep as of now but hopefully all works out for you. Im new on here so if my solution helped you please give some good feedback on my answer thank you

Test your PSU or replace it
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
hope this helps
