  1. I just bought a new Toshiba Laptop a135-s4427. I put 1.5 gigs of ram in it. It is running windows vista and it is great. But every time I download something on utorrent it completly freezes my laptop. I mine completly, I can't do anything but hold down the power button to turn it off.
    What could be the problem? More RAM?
