You might have been better spending that money on a new system, but sorry to hear you're having issues.

Have you tried to reinstall Windows 7, or tried a System Restore?

@fz21z
thanks i filled up the specs.

@hatinwin7
thanks for the concern. actually I'm also hoping that someone here with a similar laptop has done it. i have a recovery disc. should there be any problem, i hope i can revert to the original factory settings.

Well the good news is, there are Windows 7 drivers for your model, 32 and 64bit, so making the change should go smoothly - HP Pavilion dv5t-1000 CTO
