Our work has an older HP laptop running windows 7. We need to use it to do a short training connected to our conference room TV via HDMI cable tomorrow.
However, when started normally, it will freeze within a few minutes after booting up. ie: if you don't log in, it will freeze when selecting which user to log in as, or if you do log in, you have a minute or 2 before everything freezes completely.... can't move mouse, no response to ctrl-alt-delete etc.
It runs fine in safe mode and safe mode with networking.
I can access what we need to use for the training in safe mode, but cannot get the laptop to use our conference room TV as a monitor. This would be a perfectly fine stopgap for the time being if someone could help with this if the laptop appears to be a lost cause. We JUST had to replace the TV, so trying very hard to get this to work without replacing the laptop as well.
