vista still hanging after full "out of box state" recovery
a few days ago my laptop starts freezing at random and becoming more frequent, then it just failed to start (black screen with cursor after windows loading bar) same in safe mode.
ran memory test, startup problem test etc, found nothing. so i ran "Toshiba total PC recovery", which deleted all data and returned my pc to "out of box" state.
it took maybe 2 hours to set up again. now it starts up but hangs the same after just a few minutes. does this point to a hardware problem? what would your next move be?
i'd really appreciate any ideas you may have, thanks in advance!
