Laptop Just Freezes Please help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

My dad owns a Toshiba P300 17" Laptop.

Today for some reason it seems to be freezing on random occasions.
I have done a system restore.
I thought it was his cpu over heating but the bios has no way of knowing so
i am trying to get temps via coretemp but it just freezes any ideas?

Yours sincerely,
JoshsPC

Is the fan spinning? If not, get a bent paperclip, push it through the vent and wiggle it around to get the fan going again. Worked for my Toshiba Satellite A210

Have you tried to determine whether it's a hardware or software problem?

If not try a linux live CD and if that works ok then its probably a windows problem and will need a clean install.

tell what kind of operating system it has...and tell me some specs about the leptop......maybe you should go in bios and set the bios to default or if the toshiba laptop has the cooler under him try to lift him of the desk and put him on some books like a bridge to have some air flow and see if then crashes
