My Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps hanging up. It locks the screen up and just stops working. It happens in different programs and really randomly. Control alt delete does not fix it. I use a hard reboot (push power button) each time. Could it be the hard drive? If so is it OK to clone the hard drive if I get a new one?

Replace the RAM. You probably have some bad RAM sticks.

Good Luck

No matter what, backup your data now.

Then try running a hard disk scan to check for bad sectors. Some software apps will actually block off the bad sectors and prevent your system from trying to use them again.

However, I suspect that the issue is actually a memory or video card problem. Try installing memtest86 (http://www.memtest86.com/download.html) and running on your system.

SOURCE: My Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps hanging up.

Indeed it could be the hdd. I would backup all files that I couldn't afford to loss ASAP. Then, I would do a fresh reload of your choice of OS. Be sure to do the full format NOT the "Quick" format. This will allow the system to recognize any bad clusters that might be on that hdd.

Hope this helps.

Please try to remove the battery and just connect the power adapter to turn it on. You shoudl get the screen to work. After which, power off and then connect the battery back.

If this does not work, it maybe a hardware proble with the screen or the inverter
