Unexpected Shutdown


New Member
I have a Vista Home Premium 64bit HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop.

I don't really shut it down much, I just put it to sleep all the time. For over a year, it worked fine.

Recently though, instead of going to sleep, it just freezes and restarts by itself, and I get a message saying "Windows recovered from unexpected shutdown" ... it does that every other time I put it to sleep, and sometimes when it's asleep OR on hibernate (with fans off and everything; sleep also has fans off), it just spontaneously freeze-restarts - so it doesn't look like it overheats.

I tried updating everything I could think of and uninstalling random crap, but it didn't help..

It freeze-restarts all the time, I don't know what to do with it at all. I would really appreciate any input or experience with this kind of situation.

edit24569i27: I had the same problem many months ago, but I updated stuff and it stopped freeze-restarting. I really don't know what I did though.

Hi! I ran the thing and did the HTML - all attatched.

You're right, I've never seen the blue screen at all.

Thanks for your help. <3
