My laptop HP Pavilion dv2000 AMD TURION 64X2 DUAL-CORE. The laptop, after a short period of time working, freezes then the blue screen of death appears. If I wait a little bit, it will reboot by itself. I went to Microsoft updates plus the Nvidia and also to HP website to see if I can get any help. I tried everything and they told me to do but it's still freezing, blue screen and shooting down / rebooting again.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think your laptop’s Windows has been corrupted or any program file is missing. Now either repair Windows or reinstall it.

One more thing can be done: Restart your laptop press F8 key than boot into last known good configuration.

Definitely will help you out.

Bye

    For future reference: I've often seen heat do this as well. Check and clean fans and make sure vents are unobstructed. Check also for proper clearance beneath laptop and not on blanket, etc. It needs to breathe! :) When the CPU overheats, you can definitely experience the issues described in the question posed here. I've personally had two laptops like that, both of which I've never had another issue with once I cleaned. (For prevention, I keep one on a cooling pad which has two fans in it...yes, I know those are controversial...but the laptop continues to run with no more freezing!)

    Since no error messages were listed in your original message, and I have seen what you are talking about in other PC's and laptops.  It is possible that the memory or CPU needs to be reseated.  It works fine while it is cool, but after it warms up, it quits, blue screens, and shuts down.  After it cools down it restarts.  I had a clients laptop doing just what you described, and it was bad memory, and the laptop was saying that.  The manufacturer told me to "reseat an onboard video card" even though the system was saying bad memory.   You cannot reseat an onboard video card on most laptop system boards.  The other comment where it is overheating is also a definite possibility.  Make sure that everything is cleared of dust and other debris.
