I am very frustrated with this problem. My computer (Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q701) freezes, as in the picture that is on the screen stays there and I get a slow motion sound of what ever i am watching/playing.
This problem happens when playing Youtube videos or playing games. It is random with one exception, if i uninstall the sound driver and reinstall it i have anywhere from 1 - 3 hours of usage before it freezes again.
This has happened with in 10 min of booting my computer while completely cold and after 3 hours of hard core gaming.
Things I have tried...
install new BIOS
Install all new drivers from manufactures website
complete wipe of windows and re-install.
checked Ram ... both check correct.
opened up and cleaned out dust from everything
I have rivatuner software but it is only there to prevent another problem with black screen that happens to ALL qosmio x305 q701 laptops
I also replaced the fan, witch now dose not work at all... before that the fan would not spin up to max speed except at startup for about 2 min, after that it would not get above 40% speed ... I cant get any fan software to find my fan to control it or even monitor it. 40% is an estimate based on how it sounds from when it worked before.
The freeze is not related to the fan/heat because it does it 10 min after cold boot.
I am out of ideas any help would be nice.
