I have this laptop and every windows os freezes and is slow. I’ve tried 7 and xp doesn’t matter which it still freezes. So I went to try and install Linux but that didn’t help cause EVERY distro won’t install or boot up to install. It keeps giving me errors. I’ve tried multiple hard drives and dvd drives. This thing has 5 gigs ram and I’ve taken out the 4 gig stick and error I’ve taken out the 1gig stick and error. Is there any other ideas on why this is happening or fixes to install deepin linux?! Im so frustrated I’m about to take a hammer to it and throw it away after. Thanks for taking the time to read this and helping!
When you said you tried multiple hard drive, you replaced the hard drive in the Toshiba with a known good one and still can't run anything? On either RAM stick? Seems like some other hardware is at fault, possibly the motherboard itself.
