Re: Vista ceases, what can I do?
Lockups or freezes without blue screens (stop errors) are usually hardware
related, ie: a system component is faulty or failing. Upgrading from Vista
to Win7 will not alter that or reolve it. As your HP is less than a year
old, it would still be under warranty and you should have this problem
addressed immediately by them.
If there are stop error messages, please post back with the text of them
verbatim for analysis.
