|Okay, it keeps going to BSoD, then runs the CHKDSK, then attempts to reboot (taking it's dear sweet time), and starts the process over again.|
There is nothing attached, no external components via USB or any other method. I have not attempted to install any programs or hardware recently. I have not downloaded any programs. However, I have left my computer up and running constant. The night before last, I left myself signed into FaceBook. When it froze, I was using a FB app and AIM. My friend had signed in, Windows stopped responding, and it all went downhill from there.
I actually had problems with this laptop over a year ago when I attempted to use a memory disk in the built in port. After reformating my hard drive when that happened, I didn't attempt that port any longer and I haven't had problems again, until now.
I hear that Toshiba hard drives don't have a long life... wish I had known that in the past. Instead of attempting to retreive my documents on my own, I may just pay someone (privately or Best Buy) to do it.
So, I can't go without a laptop, really. Suggestions for a new one?
