If you can't keep your laptop stable and on for longer period, and you're experiencing random shutdowns I'd say you're facing a motherboard problem. This failure is actually well known and hapens a lot with Toshiba and HP. You'll most probably need to repair the motherboard that suffers from the Maxim 1987 or Maxim 1532 power chip failure.
The repair process is fairly straightforward, but it isn't for the faint hearted. It requires a resolder of the tiny Maxim 1987 chip that should get your motherboard up and running again in no time. The other alternative is to go for a new motherboard, or just get a new laptop alltogether.
If however your laptop experiences random freezeups, and you notice that the DVD is slow at reading data, and especially if you experienced some random mouse and keyboard freezeups, then you'll need to repair the motherboard from a FSB chip failur, which causes these random freezeups, which is a bit easier to do but still a challenge.
Hope this helps

I have found that if using a previous used hd and just reformatting the drive wouldn't allways work with some software and some pci cards.
I found out that using a data eraser first on the hd,then installing windows fully,then add the add-ons(pci Boards) and software as directed works fine.

(data eraser) my software overwrites with 00 all of the drive including the system files.

No HD audio on Toshiba Satellite under Win XP Pro; Vista works OK


You almost have it correct. There is one more patch you must install before SP32646.

Read about kb888111.exe file from
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888111/en-us

But kb888111.exe is not available at that link. It is here:
