Satellite A75-206 Problems Continue

I can empathize with everyone here. I bought my first A75-206 in August '04 and still do not have an operable machine.

This is my third machine. The first two experienced the same locking up issues others have been commenting on. My current one (which Toshiba replaced despite their stated "no replacement" policy) had a problem with the speakers going out on me. Luckily, I have a repair center close to me where they replaced the top cover assembly which was supposed to be causing all the locking up and speaker issues. Within a week, the speakers stopped working. I've been told it needs a new system board and the part is on back order with Toshiba. It's been two weeks and their best estimate is at least one more week before the part comes in.

Customer service throughout this process has been abysmal. This is very frustrating since the first Toshiba laptop I owned never had a single problem. Even if this problem eventually gets fixed, I'll never buy another Toshiba product again.

sound problems with Toshiba A75-S206

all of this sounds familiar! within 2 weeks of purchasing my laptop from Circuit City, the computer went crashed. CC said to restore the computer and its been ok since then. (however the CC tech did mention there are motherboard issues with toshiba). in addition, i would like to know if anyone else has had sound issues. my sound goes in and out. i never know if it will work when i turn on the laptop. i'd like to know if anybody has suggestions or fixes...thanks.
