Hello.

I have an HP Pavilion 8750 C, 30 gigs, with 128 MBs RAM.

I've had a problem with lock ups since day one (approx 3 years ago).

I've tried re-installing Windows 98, installing Windows XP, adding RAM...and
nothing seems to work.

Any suggestions as to what might be causing the lock ups and how to fix them
would be greatly appreciated.

The support site for your HP Pavilion 8750 is here. If you haven't used it before, you should bookmark it and make use of it.

There are numerous reasons for lockups. What are you doing with your computer when it locks up, and are any error messages generated?

Why have you endured this for 3 years? :confused:

I book marked the site and looked it up. It said that a program called backweb can cause
lock ups...so I deleted it.

I'll see what happens.

Much appreciated.

Download and install Ad-AWARE 6.0.181 and SPYBOT - SEARCH & DESTROY 1.2.0.. The links to download these programs from and the instructions for using them are posted on my website in the spyware article at the bottom of the list. They'll get rid of the spyware you likely have in that computer.

Is it true that you can alter the speed of the processor fan?

Or was it a dream I had. :)
