topping for help.
I looked at the standby settings, and I don't think that they are causing this issue. If I leave my computer on for maybe over 30 minutes, then it will usually freeze, and I will have to do a hard shut down and restart.
I am running Norton and Malware bytes, and it only finds a tracking cookie at best.
How can I fix this? Should I do a system recovery? What are the effects of doing a lot of system recoveries (like 1 every few months)?
I have an HP Pavillion 6500, 2 gb, 32 bit, windows vista. I have noticed that lately when my computer goes to standby mode (when I don't type for maybe 20-30 minutes), it remains "on", but the screen in black, I hear the processor or the fan, but no matter of button pushing helps to stop the standby mode, and I am forced to do a hard restart.
I have norton antivirus and scan often and also scan with malware bytes.
What is going on with my comp? Can someone help me with this?
