Windows 7: Windows 7 Content Freezing .. Where to go and what to do first?

I probably didn't set the instructions right because there is not blue screen showing up when I press that. So I obviously didnt do it right. I just now pressed the FN, CTL and f12 and nothing happens so did I not set it up properly?

I just did a search on my computer for ".dmp" to see if anything was found and one file from yesterday was created:

The file was called "$_WMIC_recoveros" and here's the content inside the file:

AutoReboot=TRUE
Caption=
DebugFilePath=%SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP
DebugInfoType=1
Description=
ExpandedDebugFilePath=C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP
ExpandedMiniDumpDirectory=C:\Windows\Minidump
KernelDumpOnly=FALSE
MiniDumpDirectory=%SystemRoot%\Minidump
Name=Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium |C:\Windows|\Device\Harddisk0\Partition2
OverwriteExistingDebugFile=TRUE
SendAdminAlert=FALSE
SettingID=
WriteDebugInfo=TRUE
WriteToSystemLog=TRUE

InstallDate=20110606185924.912826-420

Is this anything?

Thorsen I don't know why it's not working. I went over the steps again to the link you gave me and realized I skipped over step 1 on creating that file in the regedit but after checking the steps again I restarted and I still can't get the Blue screen to show. Im pressing down the FN and CTL then press f12 twice but no blue screen comes up?

Im sure I followed the steps right as there werent many. But I dont know?

I ran this report from the 'System health report' and found some tests that failed in the 'hardware and drivers' section. Actually quite a few errors after looking over it. Can you check this out? I dont know how to read it.

I didnt find anything that would point to one particular thing.

I have found that similar people are having the same issue: Brand New G62-B12SA Keeps freezing!!!!! - HP Support Forum

I thought of another thing to try, but dont konw if it will point to one thing or anything. Try running this and see if when you stall up it tells you what was last accessed. It might give us some insight on a specific process that is locking it up.

I have found some more info and another thing to try. Go here and update the BIOS: 24/7 Online support for HP's Home and Home Office Products - HP Customer Care (United States - English)


It was suggested in a forum post that someone had fixed by doing this.

Warning: BIOS updates can mess up your system if interupted or if you power off during the update. I think this one is a software BIOS update so it should run from windows and prompt you to restart to continue update. Follow the instructions on the page closely.

Here is the thread in case you wanna read: New HP G62 freezing!!! - HP Support Forum

I dont know your exact model. you might need to search HP's site with your specific model number. There might be a diff update.
