Any help from fellow DaniWebers would be appreciated,
I have a 3 yr old Compaq V2000 laptop. I recently installed a new hard drive on it and decided to install Vista Ultimate. I formatted the disk from within the Vista install. Worked fine for short time. Now the thing randomly sits dormant, or freezes. I cannot do anything. I can see and move the mouse, but I cannot select or click on anything. Then after 30 seconds or longer, everything bounces back. It happens like every few minutes.
I turned off the Windows Aero look and feel, and turned off hibernation and sleep modes as I heard these 3 things COULD be the problem.
Still have the problem. I heard Vista was inferrior to XP Pro, but disregarded because I thought I wanted Vista. I liked the gadgets and was sold by the eye candy. Bad move! Should have went with Windows 7, but did not want to upgrade all my software! Argh!! Vista Utimate .... Ultimately Sucks!!
I also purchased 2 GB of RAM, but have run tests on it and it passes all tests.
Ran AVG Web security, no Viruses, no Adware, no Spyware.
HELP ME PLEASE.

This is probably a problem with conflicting software or hardware, if the problem occured after you installed something like antivirus software this may be the conflicting application otherwise the only way you can find the problem would be to use the error logs.
