Question about Computers & Internet
my laptop keeps freezing after about 5 minutes, i re installed windows and its still doing the same
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!
