Question about Toshiba Tecra A4 Notebook
Laptop freezes are attributed to a variety of reasons both hardware and software. So I am gonna suggest a few software related stuff and we will move on to hardware stuff if it doesn't work
1) To verify if this a driver related issue reboot the computer and keep pressing F8 till you see the advanced start up options. Choose safemode with networking from the list and hit enter. See if the problem persists
2)Malware. One of the most common reasons for freezing. Download this software called spybot search and destroy.
Scan for malware and fix anything it finds. The tracking cookies usually don't matter but the other stuff are dangerous. For best results run it in safemode
3) If Spybot search and destroy doesn't fix it download and install c-cleaner and run a registry scan and fix any registry related issues that it finds.
4)If none of this works download and install combo fix. It will automatically install the recovery console and solve most windows related problems.
If none of this works then let me know and we will move on to the hardware stuff.

3rd Step: Need to run scandisk or chkdsk /f command in commandline to repair most of the HDD errors. Eg. chkdsk /f c:
4th Step: Also need to run defrag command.
