Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Periodic Freezing, resumes, clock stop

Hello all. I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 notebook that is approximately 2.5 years old. The computer has suddenly started freezing periodically while in use. Sometimes the "freeze" will last for 2-3 seconds, sometimes for a minute. However it always resumes as if nothing happened. No program errors, dialog boxes, etc. However I noticed this evening that the system clock is also stopping during these freezes. The time on the system clock was correct earlier this evening but I noticed that after a couple of hours of use and 15-20 freezes that the clock was about 5 minutes behind the actual time. Is this a hardware or software issue? Any ideas? Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply. The fan appears to be running properly from what I can tell.

    This may be a overheating issue. Check to see if the fan is operating when the unit frezzes.

Re-seat your RAMs. Or, you may have a bad one or two. If you have two, remove one and try the install again. If it fails again, remove the current one and try the other.

Probably a broken power jack inside the machine - really common problem on laptops. You can expect $100-$180 to fix depending on where you take it.

Get a recommendation from someone if you go to a local place - lots of shoddy shops are around,
