Use the link under your name to permanently fill in your specs (alternatively you can use the UserCP button at the top on the left when you're visiting the forums)

And I spell checked your was way too hard to read like that.

Finally, check to see if any new software / updates were installed (and remember that HP also has its own updater process)....

Checked - no hp updates..

Hi..Sorry for the bad language. I shall keep the above points in mind.

I checked for updates but none of them were installed by HP, there were a handful of them and all of them were windows updates. Dont know if windows updates is the cause of the problem...though i doubt it..!!
