With increasing frequency, my computer is freezing up. It started as once a week or so, and now I can't be up and running more than a few minutes without it happening. The first sign is that my keyboard/touchpad stop working. I have a few precious seconds to use the mouse to save and shut down applications before the whole thing crashes. I am running malware and virus scans right now in safe mode and all seems well so far, so I thought I'd post here since the problem only seems to occur when I try to type (I think it would stay up and running indefinitely until I touch the keyboard - am testing this currently, will let you know.)
I have an hp dv1000 notebook running Windows XP. I have been using a USB mouse, which doesn't freeze when the keyboard, etc. freezes. I've done some general internet searches and searched on hp's technical site, and this doesn't seem to be any recognized problem(?). Any advice is much appreciated!
