Laptop freezes during reformat
My laptop started freezing yesterday, and after a few minutes I got the BSOD. I did a hard reboot, and couldn't get past the windows logon screen, and eventually went back to the BSOD. It wouldn't even go into safe mode. After the machine had been off for a while, I could reboot, but 10 minutes in, it would freeze again, and the same thing would happen. When the computer freezes the sound changes, and I get a quiet clicking noise.
I thought it might be bad ram, so I replaced the ram, and still the same problem.
I decided to reformat (thinking it may be a virus, or spyware issue). It wasn't such a great idea. The furthest I've gotten into the reformat is 30% before everything stops, and the clicking noise starts again.
I have a Toshiba Satellite M30
1.6 GHz Pentium M 715 CPU (1Mb L2 cache)
1Gb DDR PC2700 ram (2x512Mb)
80 GB 4200 rpm HDD (Toshiba MK8025GAS)
64Mb DDR NVIDIA GeForce FX GO 5200
Does anyone have any suggestions for me.
