Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 Notebook ?

Continuous freeze even after using the recovery and application drivers dvd

\015 The little strip of plastic covering of my cd/dvd drive broke and so I removed it and this little strip of metal is poking out. After using like that for about 4 weeks,-I started experiencing a freeze or lock. The cursor will just hang. In a state of panic, I used the Toshiba recovery cd to wipe and bring the laptop to its original state. Prior to doing that I noticed that the dvd drive was not regitering the cd and dvd anymore. athe message would be 'insert disk in D'.- Well, my point is all my efforts hasn't stop the cursor from freezing. Each time I start the laptop, I will have to leave the dvd door opened to prevent instant freeze, but that will only last for untill I clicked on say the control panel button. It freezes again even with the dvd door left open. Please help.\015

Sounds like spyware. Spyware can do strange things. Someone else had a similar problem to yuor and this fixed it. Unless you reformatted your hard drive and re-installed your O.S. then you did not really solve the problem with your O.S. freeze problem. As far as the CD-Rom, lets do one thing at a time.

\015\012\015\012 Turn the system\015\012restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. \015\012Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. \015\012Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using\015\012msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to\015\012the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use\015\0122 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does\015\012not.). I have links on my website\015\012(tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the\015\012download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a\015\012program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). \015\012This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that\015\012you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to\015\012have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and\015\012have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will\015\012give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your\015\012computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link.\015\012 ([email protected])

\015\012Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope\015\012that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for\015\012spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a\015\012great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming\015\012and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not\015\012have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day\015\012and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many\015\012programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time\015\012though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any\015\012scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. \015\012Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If\015\012nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it\015\012repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store\015\012bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes\015\012problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please\015\012rate me if it helps.
