I got my laptop feb. 2009. Generally, i have no problems with this laptop except that sometimes, the laptop freezes. When i check taskman, it shows that i have 95+% system idle cpu process, in other words, laptop isn't doing anything. Then again, the application that i'm using is in a "Not Responding" mode. The application that freezes is random, sometimes it's yahoo messenger, sometimes it's netbeans, sometimes, firefox, etc...
Now, I'm not sure if this is a problem of the HP Product or Vista 64. I have updated all of the drivers and it is still happening. Can someone please help address the issue, if not, at least tell me why this is happening.

What anti-virus and firewall are you using?
Check you Application logs...
You might find that it is browser related as in a add-on, plug-in or a toolbar.

Just for S&Gs: uninstall "MS SilverLight"
hi, i doubt that it's in any application log because it's random. like yesterday it was itunes that hung up. today, it was yahoo messenger. and whenever they (random applications) freeze, i check taskman if something is eating up the resources.. what do i see? i see the hung up application doing 0 cpu (doing nothing), and see system idle process doing 99%cpu. it's like telling me, that laptop isn't doing anything.

Can you Write Your p/n number. It's under your computer and looks like this.
Try torun also this things:
1. Clean cache.
2. Defragment your disk.
3. Check with antivirus(nod32 online).
4. Check with antispyware (Spybot - Search and destroy)
Informations how to install and use Spybot You will find here.
And if haven't done that Update your system with Windows Update.
