driver error

Now that was useful. if you look at the info in the snip, it says the source of the error is acpi. acpi.sys is used by the video driver and is taking too long to load hence the freeze. the way to correct this is to get the most current driver for your video card and install it. I will be lurking this thread so let me know how it turns out

Hope this helps

umm ive never taken the laptop apart but that sounds like a good idea. yes there was a new bios released and i just updated to it yesterday. i went into the device management tab and located the graphics card and searched online for drivers. im going to HPs site now to see if anything different is there.

I have a feeling my hunch is going to prove correct on this being a graphics card issue...but I could be wrong. Never say never...

That is NOT the way to update your Nvidia 8400M GO Graphics processor driver!!! Never rely on Windows to update your drivers!!!
EVER!

You have to Manually go & download it from Nvidia under Windows 7 Drivers!!!

Here's the info & link to that...

This is for the 8400M Notebook graphics processor
which is what supposed to be in that Laptop...

If changing the BIOS settings do not help, you could always reinstall the BIOS as the last time you installed it, it may have installed incorrectly.
