Hi@Georgeb25, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

 

 A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are having issues with the laptop freezes. Don't worry we'll work together to find a solution for you.

 

To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

 

Have you made any software or hardware changes on the computer?

Have you performed any troubleshooting steps before posting?

Did you try to run any test on the computer? 

 

In the meantime, let's try these steps here: 

 

Perform a Hard reset on the notebook: A power reset (or hard restart) clears all information from the computer's memory without erasing any personal data. Performing a power reset might fix conditions such as Windows not responding, a blank display, software freezing, keyboard stops responding, or other external devices locking up.

 

Run a System diagnostics test as well as an extensive test on the Hard drive and Memory from F2 (Please capture the failure ID for further assistance).

If the test fails, I recommend you contact our HP phone support for further assistance.

 

If the test passes, Next thing, I would suggest here is to Run Windows Updates troubleshooter -

 

Download and install the troubleshooter from this link.

 

Now try to perform Windows Updates - 

 

1) In the search box, type, and open Windows Updates. 
2) Check for updates. 
3) If the updates are available, click on install and restart the computer. 

 

If the issue still persists, I would suggest you try to update the Bios, Chipset, and graphics card drivers on your computer from our HP Support website, using this link.

 

Also, download and install HP support assistant on your PC. It should automatically download and install the latest updates and drivers for your PC.

Refer to this link to know how to use HP support assistant.

 

Meanwhile, I recommend you to follow the steps in the below article and check if it helps.
