wondered if maybe someone would know, it's a little weird problem.
I have had this HP nx6110 laptop for a number of years now. It used to have Win XP Pro, and then I had six months of Ubuntu linux on it (no dual boot), and then eventually went back to XP because Ubuntu is too much hassle. Anyway, since I have had it back onto XP, I have had this very nagging error. Generally it would run for a while, and then all of a sudden, all computer functions would freeze with response from keyboard or touchpad input. Originally I attributed to a bad harddrive and went out and replaced one. I have just finished updating the harddrive with all drivers and everything else. it just did it a couple of times in the last two hours.
I wonder if maybe someone knows about this, is this a mobo problem, or something about the USB? I have no clue.
