Having problems with your Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV650 Notebook ?

Worked semi-ok for one year now a daily babysitting nightmare

\015 Crashes at least twice a day. (programs crash and have to be ended in task manager) I only use internet explorer, firefox (until that quit working entirely every time I try to use it, even though I have removed and reinstalled the program), and windows media center for my tv and movies. The media center is a real bear. Crashes at least twice a day.\015\012\015\012Also, around 3 times a week the whole computer crashes so bad no controls work at all. Only way to get anywhere is to hold power button or unplug power source.\015\012\015\012When this happens, the screen sometimes flashes on and off once a second, and usually makes all kinds of funny shapes and lines on the screen.\015\012\015\012Why would this stuff happen every day?\015\012\015\012I only use one program at a time, although I sometimes have two open at once and let one idle while I use the other. This machine is a very powerful machine, and it cost $3,000. It has never worked as well as a $500 computer. Not even on the first day. It used to stutter and skip and run slow from day one. But now it is so annoying I want to smash it.\015\012\015\012I did add ram so it is now 3gb\015\012\015\012Do you think a fresh start with the factory supplied restore disk would help these problems? I mean to restore to the way it was when it was new?\015\012\015\012If I want to do that what happens to all my saved data? How would I go about backing that stuff up?\015
