Model: Toshiba Satellite A205-S5809
OS: Linux Mint 12
Okay, I've read quite a few posts but none of them seem to solve my problem.
Some things I've tired:
- Remove battery, unplug, hold down power button for 30 seconds.
- Plugging it into a power strip. (Seen it suggested somewhere)
- I attempted what was suggested in this post. But without luck.
I'll start by saying my HDD is about dead, but that isn't causing this problem I believe (Maybe it is though). Here is why I think it's not the HDD. When it's not plugged in it seems to run fine. When I plug it in though it will eventually freeze completely, some times it freezes instantly, and I have to hold down the power button to switch it off. Maybe it's just Linux Mint? Because when I ran Slax on it, it seemed to work just fine but it was running from a CD (So it could be the HDD causing this, but it doesn't happen when plugged in). Any suggestions? It could be this version of Linux maybe. If it is, could someone suggest a different version to try for a Linux beginner?
Thanks a head of time
EDIT I don't know if this makes a difference, but I can mess around in the bios while it's plugged in all day and it won't freeze.
