Toshiba has made, and still makes, some great laptops; I've owned mostly Toshiba, including an A135 right now, and very, very happy with them all. But they have also had a few real losers, and yours may be one of them. Do a google search, there are a few models that they are going to exceptional lengths to resolve these issues, they are repairing some of these models even years out of warranty and in a few cases just replacing them. This only applies to a few models that had clear systemic problems, but yours may be one of those. A google search will tell you pretty quickly.
And Toshiba, if you are listening: You lost a recent sale (last week) to Gateway because you switched to AMD components. I almost bought one of your laptops about a month ago until I found out it had an AMD (ATI) chipset. More recently, I've passed on several of your models that I was considering (I needed another laptop) because they had AMD CPUs. Some people may not care, but I do, and among my requirements were a Core Duo (or even Core 2 Duo) CPU and an Intel chipset, and all of your laptops I've seen lately in the price range I was looking at ($500 to $700) had AMD processor and/or chipset. In this case, it cost you the sale, I went with a Gateway (see my other post).
