TOCHIBA Satelite Pro A300-01V SYSTEM UNIT
MODEL NO. PSAG9C-01V00Y
and I have ubuntu 12.04.
I started this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic474480.html
Two main problems:
1.My computer will reboot witout being asked to (just sudden restart witout any kind of warning).
2. It can also make a one-color screen (it may be blue, rose, white, gray or black) and refuse to react (sound has stoped too, it seems inactive, I have te reboot it so it works again).
Both can happen when I'm active on the computer or when I'm afk at really unexpected times.
At fist, I trough it was malwares, but I and Gringo (the tecnician that helped me on the forum) ended up saying that the ploblem wasn't malwares at all since we tried everything, but then I don't know what it is.
I fianly erased my windows vista and instaled ubuntu. But I still basicaly have the same problems than on windows (a little less worse than on windows but I feell it's getting worse with time). (so it's sure it isn't malware, virus or anything like that, right? It's something related to hardware)
It seem logical to me that the RAM is malfunctioning. Because I know vista uses a lot of RAM so that would explain why ubuntu was functioning a little bit better. But I'm really not an expert so I would need someone's advice before trying on changing the RAM. Also, when I will buy the RAM, can I change it myself? I don't want to brake something.
