My friend who has a Toshiba Satellite P-70A 01U007 has been experiecing random crashes 4 months after he purchased his laptop from Futureshop (which no longer exists >.>) So he dealt with the problems for about 8 more months before finally getting sick & tired of it and decided to ask me if I could fix it.
So I take it home to look at it and after going through a few diagnosing steps (Run a memtest, run a HDD short and long scan) and both passing without any issues, I decide to reinstall, the laptop went through 3 fresh reinstalls first was a reinstall of windows 8.1, second was an install of windows 7 and thirdly was a install of windows 8, but as you may expect all ended with bad results.
So after working with some people with no prevail I decided to ask a friend of mine who's a Toshiba expert to see if he can figure out the problem, I got a call yesterday and he said it's been working for 3 days so I'll be picking up tomorrow, so it's a 50/50 chance it works.
So today I decided to see if any other people have had issues with this laptop and I come across a thread on the eightforums, but sadly by the end of the thread it still has the issues and no official solution was found.
Talking in IRC today about this blueelvis suggested that I start up a thread here and post the minidump files I have from the laptop to see (if the problems continue) if there's a solution.
At this very moment I do not have the laptop on hand as said above so if any steps are asked of me to try, I'll have to do them tomorrow or Tuesday.
