Windows 7: HP Probook; Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit keeps freezing

HP Probook; Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit keeps freezing


I've got this HP machine a few months ago. Its the Probook 4530s.

I've formatted the harddrive and reinstalled windows a few time in hopes that it will fix this problem but it just does not seem to go away.

The windows keeps freezing for a few seconds, like the window will say "(Not Responding)" at the top...and then after a few seconds it starts working again. I checked the resource monitor and apparently the processor and memory utilization is quite low so I cant figure out why it still freezes. Can anyone help with this?
