I just got a brand spankin' new Toshiba Satellite L675 a few days ago after my defective dv9K got the inevitable BSOD that would've costed more to fix than this cheap computer I bought; although I see now that there's a good reason for it.
I can't get all of the specs because my Satellite is currently still booting up after starting it approximately 15 minutes ago, but it's got about 3G RAM and DualCore AMD processors. Booting this thing up seems unreal, but it gets worse after waiting a half hour for it to start responding. When I browse the 'net, this thing locks up entirely every time I load a web page. It's not my browser, Google Chrome, I'm sure, because any application seems to be capable of locking this thing up.
If I switch tabs in Notepad++, it'll freeze up my computer completely for at least 10 seconds about a third of the time. About nine-tenths of the time I open a new tab my computer freezes up for at LEAST a full minute (60 seconds) and can remain unresponsive for up to ten minutes. Once again, I know for a fact it's more than just the pages I'm visiting, because this applies to YouTube and just plain Google search results. I've got no more than a tenth of the programs back that I've had on my last computer which never experienced such horrendous behavior and no new programs besides them, and I've only had one download that my antivirus claimed was unsafe and I neglected to open it and deleted it accordingly.
I'm very confident this arctic freezing is a problem with my computer and I ask now for you experienced users who may have actually encountered this same problem what solutions I can look to aside from straight up returning it and getting a new computer, which I'm strongly considering.
Would any programs actually help fix this problem or would any programs exist by default that are better off deleted? Or would there be settings somewhere that can resolve this issue? Everything I've said has been very literal, and you should agree that it's not normal for a computer to freeze up so commonly as if it thought it was an Icee machine.
