What I have here is...
HP Pavilion dv6256us Entertainment Notebook PC
Intel ® Core 2 CPU T5200 1.60 GHz
32 Bit Vista Home Premium
It started acting up about a month ago, being sluggish and freezing up so I decided to do a recovery on it only to now have even more problems. I have done several recovery's on this laptop and never had any problems but the past couple of days it just has done nothing but give me grief. It almost seems like there is somebody in it messing with my head cause it started out with every time I would click on start it would flash before my eyes but would not open for me then I would go to IE and try to type in the search box and it would not show up in the box then all of a sudden there it was. Now I keep getting these very loud long beeps when I reboot and would not open windows so I would shut it down and try again and the same thing would happen again. I tap on a key and it boots...Any help on this would be so appreciated. This Notebook is about 5 or more years old.. I am not sure that I am explaining this all very well so just hope somebody can understand what I am getting at here...LOL
