    No, the hard drive does not make a clacking noise. Just like the hard drive, the mouse will freeze intermittently (freeze and unfreeze a few times) and then freeze completely.

    My sincere apologies for the very, very much delayed comment. The Laptop did not have SP2 when the problem surfaced. It has been working fine since an update to SP2. Thanks rwedinburgh.

Is the hard drive making a clacking noise, and/or does the mouse freeze only once or freeze and unfreeze a few times before dying completely?

    I think you probably have driver/software layer communication problems. In my experience, it is often driver support for either a USB device or a network card. Try unplugging everything from it and turning off network devices and see if that keeps it from freezing, and then turning devices back on one at a time and figuring out the culprit that way, and then searching for updated drivers.

    It could also be a virus or malware program. Make sure you are using updated anti-virus protection and the latest patches for your operating system.

    If you get really stuck, when it starts to freeze on and off, press the keys CONTROL and SHIFT and ESCAPE together to bring up the task manager and try to identify what process might be using an unusual amount of memory or processing power and stopping other processes.

    Good luck...

NO SOUND ON MY TOSHIBA Satellite U405


It is probably a driver issue. First check the device manager, from the Control Panel. A red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point indicate that the issue is with the driver.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download will let you search for your model and download the XP sound driver.

The specific driver may be: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2043975&rpn=PSU41U&modelFilter=&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667# (using the Satellite Pro U400-S1001V above)

I hope this helps.

It says that


It means your laptop has no Operating System.
Is this a new laptop?
You will have to install an Operating System (OS), by using an OS installation CD.

If you dont know how to install an operating system, you can view my tip on installing Windows XP which is a generally similar process of installing other Windows OS (Vista, Windows 7)

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
