Resolving software related issues
A computer stops responding or freezes mainly due to software related issues. When you encounter a 'not responding' issue when the computer is opening a particular program, you need to ensure that you have all the latest updates for that program. You also need to ensure that you have the latest drivers for all the major devices in your computer. You also need to ensure that the Operating System has all the latest updates installed in it.
When the computer processor heats up abnormally, it can prevent the computer from responding or cause freezing of the system. In order to prevent overheating, try to keep your computer in a cool, hard surface. A majority of laptops have their ventilation underneath; so, avoid obstructing the ventilation. Ensure that air circulates all around the computer. Also avoid over use of your computer.
If your HP computer incurs a virus/malware infection, it can prevent the computer from responding or lead to freezing of the system. The virus infections alter critical Windows files as well as installed user programs, data etc. Some of these viruses cannot be removed and hundreds or thousands of files could be altered. So, in order to remove the virus, clean the system using any powerful antivirus program. This software removes the injected files and helps to speed up the system.
