Im running Windows XP home on a HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop which was bought in Nov 2006, recently it has developed a problem, everytime i use the Alt+Tab to switch between active windows the system crahses and all that is possibe to do it use the keyboard to open the start menu & move the mouse around. My solution to this is to press the power button which hibernates the system, i then restart the system and press F8 on boot to delete the hibernatons file and start windows as if it had been shutdown.
A problem similar to this happens when i use the quick launch buttons on the top of the laptop which open quick play, dvd player, and the skip back, play/pause, skip forwards, stop, mute and volume buttons. This causes the same problems but upon a hibernation reboot the system will be unlocked.
Thanks for any help that any one can give in advance.
