Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra 8100 Notebook ?

Tecra 8100 Freezes shortly after Windows comes up

\015 The 8100 will start normally and work just fine for 2-3 min. then freeze up. If you keep trying to book after the the freeze it will start to freeze sooner and sooner. Letting it sit for a while it will then boot back up and work for the 2-3 min. and then freeze all over again. Thinking it was a cooling problem (as it would freeze up after it became warm) I removed the fan but it works fine on the bench. Not sure where to go.\015

Answers :

Go into your hard disk utility and defragment your file. When the computer writes to your hard disk over time these files no longer are sequential as they were in the beginning. This is one solution, also you can do a disk recovery using your original disk or by pressing F10 as it boots up. Be sure and do a good check for viruses as well. The symptom you are describing sounds alot like a virus that is slowing your system down more and more. Good luck.
