That is an odd problem. Im not sure how to or if it possible but have to tried resetting the cmos to make sure nothing was changed. It could be a possible heat related issue though but that may be somewhere to start from.
Also when it does freeze do you get blue screen at all?
My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
It is odd. I have fixed hundreds and hundreds and hundreds, etc of computers and cell phone , other electronics. And this has been one of the worst I've dealt with. I can't do a thing with it. No matter what ibtrybnot how I don't, the damn thing just freezes.
I will look into that. Although I have already had it on long enough to get into the bios and reset to defaults previously. I don't think that's the issue. Inalsonchecked for a new version of the bios from toshiba and I don't believe it holds any fixes for such issues.
With regards to a heat problem I already did the thermal paste fix. Still freezing up just a couple minutes into windows. Same thing happens in safe mode though I will check again. Is it possible this problem was left too long that it is now causing the motherboard or CPU to flake out? Up until now the user was using this laptop even after it shut down due to over heating. That can cause permanent damage eventually. I think what i will try is no Ethernet drivers and just wifi. Maybe its coincidence but it seems like it freezes up especially when installing network drivers or whenever it tries to auto connect upon windows startup. The built in recoveryfrom toshiba is the worst I've ever seen. And if i cold boot the laptop the process will begin again from where it left off I'm assuming only half installing drivers. Thats when i tried it that way. My last attempt was just with a windows disc. nAny good free program or boot program to test the CPU with that someone could recommend?
Anyone have any experience with this model????
No blue screens. Just freezing. I can reformat with the windows disc not a hitch. But when I start to install drivers it crumbles. Seemingly. And using the built in recovery I think reformists the drive and installs windows fine but it fails when trying to install the drivers. It freezes. And I notice it tries to install drivers for hardware that isn't even in that model. For example the wifi is intel but it tries to install both intel and atheros which is found in some other versions of this laptop I guess. But the laptop can't function correctly without the drivers so I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. Even doing a format with the windows disc and letting windows update get the drivers results in the same. Trust me I've tried everything. Any advice please anyone
Can the only thing I can think of is even though you replaced the thermal paste and did everything correctly is just the board is somehow damaged and maybe whenever it reaches a certain load it just cant handle it.
Odd, sorry can't give ya much help but id be curious if you do find out the problem just for my own memory bank.
I had this problem with my fathers laptop. It wasn't the exact same as what you have described. I tried most of what you did, and also re-applied thermal paste and all that.
In the end, I had to trash it. I could not find out what was wrong with it, and it ended up turning into a nice hunk of copper and plastic in the trash after I salvaged the usable peices.
Sorry I cannot be of any assistance, good luck man :|
