d6930us
Microsoft Windows Vista

So I use a older laptop, and every time I bring it out of sleep, it runs abnormally slow, pegging the CPU at 100 constantly, and when I try to open any programs, games, etc, it BSODs and throws driver power state failure. It runs Vista ultimate with all updates and up-to-date drivers. Its a dv6930us 4gb ram 2.0 ghz core 2 duo and 512mb integrated graphics 965 series. Any help appreciated. edit; is it a problem that I modify software to run on it? I modified firefox version 63 to run on it, but it never did this before. It just started yesterday and i modified firefox months ago

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

I suggest you run a System Test to confirm the Hardware Functionality

 

- Shut down the Notebook completely
- Turn it back on, then tap the Esc key repeatedly until the Startup menu screen is displayed.
- Press F2 to select System Diagnostics.
- Click System Tests, then click Extensive Test.

 

Keep me posted

It didn't work, it just opened up a os selector and f2 did nothing, but I appreciate your help!

Since you are unable to run the Hardware Diagnostic you could try resetting the OS and check

So that would be mashing f11 until the hp recovery thing opens?
