I used Acronis disk copy to clone my laptop hard drive from a 100g 5400rpm OEM unit to a new 320g 7200rpm drive. Everything went smoothly, but when I attempt to run my Toshiba Satellite A105 with the new drive it shutsdown after 10 minutes every time. It is not overheating, and everything runs normally until I hit 10 minutes when the screen goes blank and I'm forced to reboot. The laptop is still powered up and the LCD screen is on, but it is blank. When I swap back my old hard drive, the laptop runs perfectly. I have checked all of the power settings I know of and shut-off the screen saver(which was the only thing I could find that was set to activate at the 10 minute mark) Any suggests would be great because I have misplaced the system disks that came with the machine making a clean install tough. Thanks!
I run speedfan and the laptop is actually running cooler than with the 5400 drive. It also doesn't "feel" any warmer to touch. I'll check out the BIOS again when I get home from work. At first glance, it did recognize the drive, but I did not look at the size of the drive that was recognized.
