Formatting hp pavillion dv4000

\015 I need to format my notebook since everytime this freezes, perhaps i need something else rather than a format, thank you\015

Answers :

Sounds like it is overheating. If your laptop freezes due to length of time or increase in workload the variable that has changed is the heat of the internal parts. The main parts that cause freezing are the processor or the memory. Since the problem is occurring randomly but in a reproducible pattern, then it is likely the processor. If it is totally random, then it could be the memory or some other hardware conflict. If it was only freezing when you run certain programs, then you would be looking at a software problem that may have required a reinstall.

At this point you may have to send it in for any warranty repair if you have one available or you can have a local tech open it and make sure the heat sink (the cooling component of the processor) is properly seated and lubricated.
Worst case scenario is that your looking at replacing the processor or the laptop itself, whichever provides the most value.

While the dv4000 has some history of overheating, this problem may have originated either from being in a smoke filed (or otherwise unclean) environment, old age, or dropping. Avoid these risks in the future.
You could try tapping F11 after you turn the laptop on to see if it will go into the recovery mode. If it will, then just follow the instructions and tell it to do what you want it to do.
