    You probably have a failing motherboard or another pending hardware failure in this Toshiba. Take it in for repair, if its still under warranty then its advantage for you. But i recommend you for a repair service center of Toshiba.

    hi,
    its the problem of your RAM not the hard disc. the problem occur because of less memory available for processing. so please once remove the RAM and again insert it and reboot your laptop......

    I have generally found Toshiba's tech support very helpful, although with the call center it greatly depends on who you end up talking to.
