    Some problems


    Hey. I got Windows 8 Pro on my HP Pavilion dv6. I got some problems.

    1. It freezes many times, and sometimes I have to hard reset the pc.

    2. This may not be a problem but the desktop, that is the most annoying on Windows 8, I had IE on Win8 version but now it`s on desktop. Any help to get it back to Win8 version ?

    3. When i gonna take a prefomance test on my laptop, the whole shit stops. It wont do anything. I'm considering switching back to windows 7, but i got a problem on my Hard Drive so i dont dare to that, in case the hold HD gonne stop working.

    But please help me, i`m new to windows 8 but i know pretty much.

    What problem do you have with your hard drive? 1 and 3 could be related to a hardware failure.

    I dont know what kinda problems it is on the hard drive. It just stand that they found an failure on the hard drive. I re-installed Windows many times on the laptop. So i think that is the problem.

    Hello there!

    May I ask, how old is the laptop? I ask this as you might need to clean out the processor's heatsink as when something over heats on a laptop, it'll either freeze up or shut down.

    To get back to cool version of IE, go to the Start Screen and type in internet options. Then go over to the Programs tab, and change settings so it opens in Internet Explorer, versus Internet Explorer on the desktop.

    The laptop is one year old at the 24th december. It was factory installed Windows 7 Home Premium. I was cleaning it for about 5 months ago.
    But thanks for the IE tips.

    I'd reccomend using another computer to burn a self-booting disk checking utility, but I can't remember what the utility is called.
