I have tried upgrading to 2G of memory, but it hasn't helped.l I have also tried the high performance power option, and running programs as Windows 2000. Still, things will work ok at first, and then it freezes up. any suggestions? It even happens during solitaire games, so it's not any particular program.
Our computer also freezes for no apparent reason. To get it to work again we have to unplug the power cord and remove the battery for a few minutes. Once reconnected it works again. I am looking for a more long term solution as today the computer froze 3 times.

Have you tried taking the drive out looking at the model number on the label and contacting Toshiba support for a firmware upgrade for that model as well as an upgraded driver. Sometimes just taking the drive out and re-seating it helps.
barb, I have an A75 satellite and have similar problems. I have upgraded ram (corsair 2G) and also new hard drive now running XP pro. From what I have observed, the computer runs without problems anytime I use an external keyboard & mouse and freezes if I do not. While it doesn't freeze every time, it does it regularly, somewhere around 10% of the time. I have done the following; used it while wearing different footwear, shoes, tennis shoes, socks etc and noticed it freezes when I wear either tennis shoes or acrylic / nylon socks, it does NOT freeze when I am barefoot or have good shoes on, or when I use it on hard floors off of carpeted areas. I am certain my problem is related to static discharge and a poorly grounded front cover as the unit locks up the instant I rest my wrist on the front to start typing etc. This is a fairly well known problem with the satellite series and there are a number of fixes ranging from having the inside of the cover modified to be better grounded all the way up to replacing the cover with a newer type which apparently addresses the issue. Good luck.
