...rather, it is your computer. At first, it could have been viruses and parasites, some file corruption, etc. Since you have formated and reinstalled, you now have different issues. You have been told the answer, or part of it. Drivers. While Windows may supply some of them, they are usually "general device drivers", and may not work properly. Look to HP first for the motherboard drivers, since it is the OEM. Then look to the manufacturers of your other devices.
For about two weeks now my computer keeps crashing every time I turn it on. At first it wouldn't turn off when I go to shut down, then afterwards, it won't boot up normally. I turn it on and it freezes, every time, I have to hold down the power button, wait for a few seconds then try again. It will then boot up or ask to boot up from the Last Known Good. Either way, it will boot, get to the WIndows menu and sometimes crashes again and reboots automatically. I've reported this to Microsoft each time, and I've already re-formatted and re-installed Windows and the problem still persists. Can anyone helps please?
Here's the system spec:
HP pavilion mx70
OS: XP Home Edition, (installed in french)
80 gb hard drive, NIVIDA GeF4
738 RAM Processor: 2.13 Ghz
Running: Avast anti-virus Free edition, AVG Anti-spyware, and ZoneAlarm Free edition.
The error message I most often get after this peoblem is: Problem Caused By Device Driver
Thank you for your time. P
