I have the same "freezing" problem!

\015 Laptop HP Pavilion dv4000.\015\012The whole machine freezes and when i move the machine it works.\015\012Also the bluetooth disapears and is disfunctional.\015

Answers :

The freezing issue could stem from these problems:

corrpupt/bad software on HardDrive for operating system

bad drivers for the unit

motherboard overheating

lets start off with a few things. first tap f8 select safe mode. see if you get the freezing up issue then.
if you dont, then its a driver related issue:

for driver related issues, go to HP.com and download any available updates to your software (bluetooth,wireless,video card, and so on) including the bios flash update. you will more than likely have to get these updates by booting into f8 selecting safemode with networking to get access to the internet.

If the machine freezes up still , then its either a corrupt O.S./bad hard drive or overheating issue with motherboard.

to determine the issue reboot the machine after it freezes, go f8 for safe mode boot w/networking and do this:

go to hp.com and download all the updates for the driver software and bios (bios is very important) there have been some updates to these areas for issue related to motherboard problems. after you install all the updates select to not Restart computer yet (which it will ask after video driver updates and so on) now go to my computer, right click it, select properties and in the tools tab select the disk check option. from there check both boxes and then restart machine.

what this will do is check the disk for errors and bad clusters, and load the correct new/updated drivers, when its done it will restart and by then have moved bad areas to new places. if it freezes up during this process the drive may have hit a snag and you need to replace the hard drive.

if you continue to get this problem after all this, i suggest seeking professional assistance for motherboard overheating issues. i have fixed those problems by applying new thermal paste to the heatsink fan assembly and adding it to the GPU chip also. but in some cases i had to reball/reflow the GPU chip, which runs 80-140 depending on where you go. ebay has a few good vendors that do this.

Good Luck! I know its alot, but that should eliminate the majority of issues
