If you just bought it, and it failed the next day, why not pack it up and exchange it for one without troubles?
Using the bad car analogy. You don't take your new car to your mechanic. You go back to the dealer and they fix or replace it.
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite M640-BT2N22 and it has worked pretty well so far. Today, I turned it on and opened Microsoft Outlook to look at my email, and after a little while it froze and I had to manually shut it off. I turned it on again and it seemed to work fine. After using Excel for about 30 minutes and trying to save my work, the laptop froze yet again and I had to shut it off. I turned it on again, used excel for a while, and after about 10-15 min, the program and my computer froze again.
I installed Microsoft Office a while ago and everything seemed to be working fine until today. I turned it on again and it hasn't frozen yet. Is there a specific problem with Microsoft Office all of a sudden or could there be something wrong with the hard drive, etc? I am running Windows 7 and have an Intel i5 processor. If anybody could help me out or has any ideas about what might be wrong, that would be great. Thanks.
