Tecra 8100 freezes after 45 minutes to an hour of use


Have a toshiba tecra 8100 and improved the Win98 operating system is XP Home. After installation, Windows update has installed all updates. Now, after 45 minutes of use, the computer freezes. Furthermore, it is still a Win 98 folder in the computer. Should I remove this? Could it be the cause of the problem? I would appreciate help with this. Thank you.



I agree with asil. It is possible that your device has enough RAM and one moment is easy to much and laptop freezes simply.

If you need info on writing RAM upgrade again.

Good bye

  • Satellite X 200 freezes after 15 minutes of inactivity

    I'm tired of this problem: my laptop freezes after 15 minutes of inactivity and I can get it going again to reset. The problem was solved when I reinstall Vista, but after several months my laptop started hanging up. And my laptop is unable to install Tempro 2.0.3.

    Please, help me to solve this problem and I don't want to reinstall Vista again.


    For me it sounds like that a 3rd party software application or is causing this problem because you wrote that after Vista reinstall, the problem has been resolved.

    I put t know this software you have installed, but you need to remove all unnecessary applications as shareware or trial versions.
    Then use CCleaner to clean the registry.
    Visit the Windows update website and install all the updates that are available for your Windows.

    In the worst case, you will need to reinstall Vista again. In my opinion a reinstall from time to time is normal and I have reinstall my laptop every year. So I often have good performance.

  • SAT S1800-921 freezes after 5 minutes

    This laptop freezes after 5 minutes. The only solution is to unplug the power supply. It is usually impossible for something like 20 minutes to restart the computer.
    Already tried operating system sector / boot in the bios-update / reinstall.

    Sometimes when I start the laptop nothing happens at all but the Green led indicating that the laptop is on.

    Anyone suggestions... Please?

    Hi people,

    I don't know any virus that will prevent a computer until it has passed some time. The only thing I know to cause this behavior is overheating causing an internal thermal trigger to operate. It must then cool enough to reset before you can find. Of course the longest (and so more fresh) the laptop's left over it will eventually work before freezing.

    Check that the cooling system is not obstructed in some way (dust or proximity loose papers, fabrics for furniture etc.).

    Kind regards

  • Tecra 8100 hangs after startup

    My Tecra 8100 has the same problem as described some time ago: the memory locations of MB were broken and doesn't have a connection properly. Even when I put paper or anything else between the cover and the memory module, it did not work and often my laptop has not yet started.

    I bought the new MB and now the laptop still start (I can see BIOS etc.) BUT crashes after Windows XP logo with notice: windows cannot start because the pci.sys file is damaged... The names of 'corrupt' are different, not only from pci.sys.

    When I portable computer boot from CD Win (to save the system) it blocks (crashes after 2-3 minutes). I tried to boot from Ultimate Boot Cd to detect the problem, but I can't do anything - always crashes after a short period of time - never start to run tests or Tools CD.

    I think that there is a problem of memory - I have 2 modules Kingston KTT-SO100/256, I tried to place them in different locations, together and alone, but nothing changes.
    These modules have worked with my old MB all the time.

    Any ideas?

    I read on other forums that this error can appear if the modules of memory are corrupt or not compatible or the memory on the motherboard slot is faulty.

    Well, you have replaced the Board but do you use 100% identical to that of first?
    Perhaps modules of memory are not compatible with the new Board of Directors.

    The forum already contains these discussions where notebooks will freeze after 5 or 10 minutes of play. Have you read them?

    Now it s not easy to say what causes this problem but first of all you need to install the latest driver of Toshiba display. Don t use non-Toshiba drivers, as they can cause the overheating!

    Also make sure that you use the latest version of the BIOS and it s useful to clean the laptop time using a jet of compressed air.

  • Tecra 8100 problem after BIOS update

    I have a tecra 8100, 700 mhz with 256RAM,.
    and it works a treat, until I decided to update the BIOS, the date of the previous version was 1999!

    As I run an OS linux on this unit, I downloaded a version of the Bios boot image and loaded on startup, it reported the success of the update.

    My problem now is that the system starts fine but extremely short slow,.
    It takes 15 minutes to start and is virtually unusable.

    I ran several tests of comparative analysis and tests of memory of Hiram boot CD and the only problem in the report was my 700 CPU running at 114.82. And of couse running, the CPU runs at 100%.

    I deleted the cmos data and be restarted using the default BIOS settings.
    Long searched the net and cannot find an answer.

    Help, please.

    I visited the European driver of Toshiba page and found the latest version of BIOS that is 2, 50 - WIN.
    Do you use it?

    The BIOS can be updated only run under windows! That's why I m surprised that you were able to update the BIOS, the Linux operating system running on this computer.

    Try to download the most recent BIOS version and update as described on the help page of the BIOS update.


  • Satellite A200 freezes after 5 minutes of use

    -> Satellite A200 laptop
    (1) freeze after 5-7 minutes of use only when the laptop is load
    2) works on safe mode without problems
    3) works fine on normal mode when it is not supported


    I think you should test the memory modules.
    The memtest software is OK, but not perfect. You know
    Even though the memtest would not detect any errors, the problem of the ram is possible
    Otherwise, it could be a motherboard problem too.

    I had a problem in the past, my book of 8 years froze only if adapter was attached to only if the html files were executed.
    Finally the mobo was replaced, and this fixed the problem.

    What internal temperature? Maybe it's at a higher temperature?
    Clean the vents with air... stream could help get better air circulation...

    I checked all the settings of power and as the laptop is plugged in (it's a Dell Vostro 1700), I changed all the settings to never Hibernate, never sleep and turned off the screen saver.  I'm not saying the monitor turns off after 45 minutes.

    The screen still freezing occurs, and the only way to get out of it, is a hard reset of the operating system (power button).

  • Computer HP laptop G56 - freezes after 5 minutes


    My sons laptop hangs after 5 minutes operation.

    The fan was noisey so I replaced in fear of overheating.

    Also, I got out of the State of the check box in the recovery menu.

    However the cell blocks after 5 minutes operation.

    I tried a disk check planning but again once the laptop freezes before it can fill.

    Is this likely to be a problem of disk or memory, or overheating?

    Any help would be great - thanks


    Hi David,

    Your laptop is listed as coming with a 250 GB hard drive, but you can also easily install a 500 GB HARD drive if you want a little more space - readers at the following links are examples that would be perfect for your laptop.

    250 GB hard drive.

    Hard drive 500 GB

    The procedure to replace the hard drive begins on Page 37 of your & Maintenance Guide.


    About reinstalling Windows 7 on new HARD drive, there are two options - I tend to prefer the second option wouldn't it because it costs nothing

    1. you can order a set of replacement recovery disks using the link below - it will reinstall the operating system, all the drivers, and almost all of the original software (the exception being often tests of MS Office).  They will also recreate all of the original scores, including the recovery Partition.  The cost varies a bit depending on where you live, but they are generally inexpensive.

    Order HP recovery disks.

    2 another option that you might consider is to create your own Windows 7 installation disc.

    Before you try the following, make sure that you can always read the character product activation key 25 on your label Windows COA (5 blocks of 5 alphanumeric games).

    An example of a COA label can be seen here.

    You can create a Windows 7 installation disc yourself using another PC - just download the good Disk Image ( this must be the same version that originally came with your laptop - it is listed as Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit ) from the link below and use an app like ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly on a blank DVD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write an ISO on a disc is here.  The Image comes from a very respected source (Digital River).

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

    Use the disk to perform the installation, enter the activation key of Windows on the label of the COA at the request and once the installation is complete, use ' 'phone Method' described in detail in the link below to activate the operating system -this made method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who want to just have a new installation of Windows 7 without additional software load normally comes with OEM installations.


    You may need, additional drivers and software are here.

  • Satellite A60 stops automatically after about 1/2 - 1 hour of use


    My PC automatically stops after about 1/2-1 hours of operation.

    Can you help me?
    Thank you.


    Sounds like overheating
    Have you noticed a higher temperature?
    High temperature may affect the pieces of equipment like the CPU, RAM, GPU

    What do you think of this?

    The A60 is a little old, and I think that there could be dust inside checking the fans If you can remove the dust using a jet of compressed air.
    This should help to decrease the temperature.

  • Tecra 8200 freezes every few minutes with the XP Pro Retail version

    I've updated a Tecra 8200 with a retail version of Windows XP Pro SP2 (256 MB RAM) it was a new installation after reformatting the drive. I think I've loaded all Microsoft Windows updates and drivers from the site Web of Toshiba.
    The laptop freezes for about 30 seconds every few minutes, even when you try to open a session.
    Also when starting for the first time there is a constant repetitive ping of the noise, which I assume is the hanging windows startup sound. Finally, it stops and it can be used for a few minutes.

    Can someone please?


    In my opinion, you should buy more RAM. As far as I know, this unit can manage with 512 MB max. You can use PC100 256 MB (PA3069U - 1 M 25). I'm sure the spirit more RAM there are much more likely to make it work.

    I hope that all hardware components are recognized and installed correctly. You can also try to check which processes are active and I advise you to stop. On this way, the processor has more power for other applications.

  • Lenovo Y510P SLI freezing after 3 minutes

    Hi guys,.

    Since I bought my lenovo Y510P SLI, I had a problem.

    When I watch a film/youtube clip/play a game on my logitech keyboard, I had a problem with performance.

    After 3 or 4 minutes my movie/game begin to freeze like a kind of energy saver turnes on.

    I don't know what could be the problem.

    I put my laptop in ultra-high performance via lenovo energy management.

    I also checked the settings of the windows power management tool and everything seems fine.

    I don't have a problem with my lenovo G550 I bought 5 years ago.

    Currently, I have only 128GB SSD inside my laptop and from time to time I connect external drive.

    Please let know us what I could do.

  • FrameMaker freezes after 60 minutes

    Over the years, I had insurmountable problems with FrameMaker version 5.5.6, 7 and 8 gel exactly 60 minutes after the start of FrameMaker on some machines, including hardware Dell, Lenovo and Asus and Windows XP and Windows 7 operating systems. At the minute 60 mark exactly, the process of FrameMaker hammers the CPU up to 50% and stays there, and the program is then frozen ("not responding"). The rest of the system still works. I (and several system administrators) spent several days trying everything in the book, nothing helps. I never found the source of the problem; I gave up and avoided using random Windows machines that do not exhibit the problem and using FrameMaker on Solaris. I now work at home (in fact, * tent * work from home); I can no longer avoid the problem, and the camera virtually unusable FrameMaker.

    While I appreciate all suggestions, each takes 60 minutes to test (of course) and I tried as much as I feel like I can't try them without some sort of a lead. To this end, I have a direct question for programmers of Adobe FrameMaker:


    I think I finally found the offending parameter that makes all versions of chassis (including 10) lock upward automatic registration or 60 minutes, whichever is earlier. It started to happen to me once again (even if logged in as a new user) right after I went into Control Panel and adjusted the keyboard settings. It turns out that if I put the None cursor blink rate can I get the problem of gel. If I set the blink rate to other settings frame freezes.

    I checked my other machines broken insofar as possible and this seems to be the question, and I can fix just by setting the cursor blink rate to any value other than None. I would be interested to know if this resolves your problem, too, rhbeers.
