Hello, I have a Toshiba L305 laptop running Vista that constantly freezes up after only about 5 minutes of use. I had one computer repair place(who physically looked at it) tell me its probably the hard drive and another place (that did not look at it) tell me its probably the motherboard and another one (who did not look at it)tell me it was probably overheating. I ran the check test on vista and got no hardware problems. I also checked to see if the vents were clogged(no) but cleaned them anyway, and checked and made sure that the fan was running when it freezes and it is running and pushing out cool air. I dont think its infected, I am running AVG and havent had any warnins pop up, but I am stumped! Can anyone please help me? Thanks so much!
