Now I get random freezes. I've reinstalled XP numerous times, 15...16, maybe 17. Sometimes it works and the laptop wont freeze for days, sometimes it wont freeze for hours, but now today it freezes constantly. It will freese at the XP Welcome screen (the logo and loading bar will be faint and barely visible like it didnt load all the way) or it will log in and while usuing the laptop it will freeze (withing minutes). The only way out of the freeze is to hold power button down for a reset.
Once again, I'm on a Toshiba Satellite M45 S2962....only upgrade to the unit is an addition 512MB RAM..... .99GB is what the system reports having.
I'm assuming this could be a hardware issue, but I'm not sure where to look as far as parts. I'd rather not go out and spend the cost of a new laptop trying to fix the problem, if it could be possibly narrowed down I'd appreciate it.
(If allowed, I'll post a HJT from the laptop, but it will be bare, HD has been formatted with a clean windows install)
