How come my Toshiba Satellite laptop freezes?

by on October 15, 2012

Q: I have a Toshiba Satellite . This month it stopped for about 3 times. It just freezes, the image on the screen remains the same, but it doesn’t react to anything (Ctrl+Alt+Delete,and even the Power Button). The only solution is to take the battery out.

What is the reason for this & what do you recommend?

Also, the last time this happened the computer was turned on for just 1 hour before it stopped.

Thank you!

    Unfortunately this is a very difficult problem to diagnose without actually looking at the laptop.

    Make sure Windows is up to date, along with any device drivers. Uninstall any software you don’t use.

    If you’re still having trouble consider taking the laptop to a local repair shop for them to take a look at it.
