I have a Toshiba satellite A105-S4074 laptop. I have Windows media center.Computer freezes after operating system fully loaded. I was able to start the computer eventually using sysconfig. Laptop would run fine for a day then freeze after turning it on. One day it works fine the next day it crashes. I force the computer off and enter safe mode. Then using sysconfig was able to eventaully load windows.

I did upgrade ram from 1 gb to 4 gb and did not encounter problems. I ran disk check in safe mode. I was using verizon connect manager for internet access and that would freeze so I deleted the program. I was planning to reformat the hard drive or restore by I lost the original disks. It seems something in the startup files is causing the crash. Toshiba did not offer any advice.

When it's running, download Autoruns:

Use it to see if you can find something fishy running at Startup
