    My Inspiron 9300 freezes within minutes of windows starting. Norton can't access my hard drive and "system scan" fails every time. My Registry cleaner found 600+ problems, but didn't fix the freezing.

Sounds like you may have a broken hard drive. If you're out of warranty, somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the part. The part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Laptop Repair Services.

I came across a similar issue with IBM/Lenovo T60. The Lenovo site was barren of any solution at all. If like me you noticed that the battery was dead, simply remove the battery and run the laptop from mains. I too tried a complete system restore and even formatted the HDD and installed Fedora10, still no joy.

THE only answer was to reomove the offending dead battery, sadly this actually works, I'm now saving the £47 I need to buy a new LiOn cell...

For overheating problems always check the function at lowest cpu-speed. You need to get into the setup, not sure about Tecra but escape and after a while F1 should work.
Then hyrry to set the cpu-speed with space-button and save with home-button.
Check if the laptop now works ok or anyhow longer time.

Got the same damn issue. I re opened the case several times, changed the CPU to heat sink glue (have in mind, that the VGA chip also has a metal plate connected to the heat sink, which i thought it was the problem, so I replaced the glue there too).
Rechecked the memory with memtest several times, no problems.... But keeps freezing!! Even in memtest or Bios or whatever.
Everything points to an overheat problem, but: How could it start suddently one day? Processor's Fan does work (and evacuates a lot of heat, by the way). Heat Sink glue is now new...

Maybe faulty mainboard?

I will try to replace RTC's battery now.

I'm pretty sure I wont buy toshiba again!

Qosmio f60 fan goes on high speed and freez. It keep freezing.The only way to reboot it is to hold down the power button to turn it off and then turn it back on.

I have the same "computer" qosmio f60. I've replaced the hard drive, installed a new window 7 OS, changed RAM paging, power options, run the things with a fan pointed at the computer fan.
The fan goes to high speed and the HDD LED unblinking. I've brought the laptop to two computer shops whose owners knew less about computers than I did. I tried to go to a Toshiba recommended shop in Toronto except they changed to Apple-service only. I tried phoning Toshiba, they just want to change 4 bucks a minute for technical assistance. I've had this Toshiba-thing going on 3 years with the troubles starting after the first year. No one cares about this problem. If I see a Toshiba factory I'm going to chuck this red brick of cra through the window.
BTW it's not a virus or rootkit. I had to learn how to partition a HDD sector through some crazy BIOS program before installing windows. There's no virus or rootkit that's causing this problem.
It's mostly been freezing on me with games.

I Have a Toshiba laptop that says error loading operating system

If you have a windows xp CD you could try a repair installation. Start to install windows, and when it checks for previous versions it may give you the option to repair. this will look like a fresh install but your files will still be intact.
If the repair option is not there, you will need to format the HD and start from sctratch

Toshiba laptop freezes using webcam


Do you think its due to external webcam ?

You mean that if you dont use webcame it works fine.

If this is the case you just uninstall the webcame drivers from Add/Remove Programmes under Control Panel.

Try to get the latest drivers from webcame manufacture website which suits your windows(OS) and install it again.
