My computer model is a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5105
My laptop went off a table last week. Hit the carpet. Picked it up,
restarted it... it seemed to be just fine. I could do everything as I
used to.... but later that night a game I was playing completely froze
and the machine eventually bluescreened.
It was late at that point, so I turned it off and let it sit overnight. It seemed to be mostly
okay, except Firefox would occasionally get the whole "not responding"
bit for 15 seconds at a time... but it also did the same with with
generic folders I had open... and they'd progressively last longer and
longer until it would completely lock up my computer and the only way to
get out of it was to force shutdown the machine.
On thanksgiving, I tried booting it up and it just could not get past
the "Starting Windows" screen. It was like this for days. After
messing with it a bit with a tech savvy friend, we decided to just
reinstall windows. So now I'm on my completely renewed machine, but I
still get the "Not responding" problem that locks up my laptop.
While anything is "not responding", no CPU is being hogged up.
