Major problem with a Toshiba laptop.
The other night I was on my Dad's laptop when out of the blue the laptop froze and then just went off. Then when I tried turning it on the laptop went on but there was coming on the screen al most as if the screen was dead, but then the HD was doing nothing cuz the HD indicator light never came on. Also I turned the sound up to the speakers and I couldn't here no sound from the BIOS (The Toshiba BIOS used to make a sound like letting you know the laptop was on and everything fine you know) but now it doesn't do nothing. Also everytime I turned it off manually it used to make a beep sound to let me know that it was off, but now it only does it once a in awhile. Also for the also for the last month I've been getting weird errors from Windows XP saying "There's soemthing with your cooling system. Please turn off your system and take to authorized dealers to get it serviced" but when that error message came up I just restarted the system and I never seen it for 3 days after then I would see it again. Also about 2 months ago the AC Adapter burned and melted the cord but I got a new AC Adpter from Toshiba. I can't figure out what's wrong so I was hoping that maybe you guys help?
