    Hello all,

    I hope you can help. Pretty new at all of this, but I reformatted an old laptop - Toshiba Satellite, a305-s6825, using the windows vista installation CD. There was nothing important in the HD so I thought once I updated the drivers, things would run relatively smoothly. I updated all drivers from the Toshiba website, updated bios, and it still keeps on crashing when I do one of 2 things:

    1) boot with the battery
    2) surf the web - after a few minutes

    I installed add-ons like the adobe flash player, google, but that's really about it. This is really baffling me. these crashes didn't happen before the reformatting.

    If someone could provide insight, I would really appreciate it.

    best regards,

    Jules

    Normally it's a good practice to install all Windows updates after you have all drivers up to date.. Do you have all your updates completed including SP1&2?
