If it was working properly before?

The next step is to ask did you install all the utilities and drivers from the HP website?

Laptops especially need the proper drivers for proper operation. The drivers that install with Windows are not optimized for any specific computer. They are generic to work with the most equipment. You can get better performance with the manufacturers drivers.

The next question is, how hot is the laptop running? It may be overheating. The clue to that is where you said

.I have changed to win 7 64-bit.now the problem is that whenever my processor power management is at maximum at 100% my laptop freezes when playin games and rarely when seeing a movie.


It just may need a good heatsink assembly cleaning.
HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide ›
From the service manual.

NOTE: To properly ventilate the computer, allow at least a 7.6-cm (3-inch) clearance on the right side
and rear panel of the computer. The computer uses an electric fan for ventilation. The fan is controlled
by a temperature sensor and is designed to turn on automatically when high temperature conditions
exist. These conditions are affected by high external temperatures, system power consumption, power
management/battery conservation configurations, battery fast charging, and software requirements.
Exhaust air is displaced through the ventilation grill located on the left side of the computer

Also note that the bottom of the laptop should always be on a hard surface when the laptop is turned on.

HP Recommended cleaning procedure.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01657439&tmp_track_link=ot_recdoc/c00292159/en_us/c01657439/loc:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us

This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs.
The electrical components in a PC generate heat, and fans inside the PC help move the air to keep the components cooled to normal operating temperatures. Inadequate cooling can cause excess heat which forces the fan to run constantly, can damage components, and limit the speed of the CPU. All of these problems with high power and high heat will cause applications to work slower than normal.
The sound of the fan running all the time may the first clue that your PC is not running as efficiently as possible and that you may have a problem with accumulated dust clogging air vents.

Note: I do not recommend opening the laptop to clean the heat sink. The connectors used are delicate and easy to break and almost impossible to repair once broken.

Good Luck
Roger

For reference purposes this link below are the specifications for this laptop as shown on the HP website.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01787636&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=4063&product=3976066&sw_lang=

Note that it shows Windows Vista originally. As well as a AMD CPU, which means it most likely runs hotter than the Intel CPU version would.

If you are sure it isn't overheating, I consider a cooling pad useless as they do not push the air through the heat sink inside the laptop.

Then it may be malware. Have you run scans?
