Default Toshiba M55-s325

Hey everyone! I just had a question on my old laptop. Its been sitting around for a while and i decided to try and fix it after having my dad take it around to a bunch of repair shops, but none could fix it. Well to make a long story short, its a toshiba m55-s325 and i beleive it has a pentium m 740 1.73 ghz processor. Anyway when we truned it on it would stay on for a little and then freeze after about a minute and u had to restart it! Today, i figured out the problem by going to the bios settings and changing the cpu power from dynamic to always low. I dont understand why but when i put it on low (only 800 mhz instead of 1.73 ghz) it wouldnt freeze anymore so i put it back on dynamic and it froze again. Does anyone know why this is the cause? Do i need a new cpu cause they are cheap so i can get one soon. Please leave ur opinion on what the problem could be.

its possible that it is your CPU, but usually when a computer does that its due to overheating parts...system will responde to a part that heats up too quickly by shutting itself down. lowering the speed to 800mhz WILL lower the temp of it so thats probably why.

Also, make sure if you do get a new cpu, make sure it will work with your motherboard
