Class Action on A70 / A75http://www.lorisklar.com/toshad.htm
From what I could find on the Internet this law firm looks legitimate
Again, I have nothing to do with it. Just passing on info!

I will keep you posted from time to time on the feedback I get and when a magazine chooses to publish this problem.

Below is the email I got today.............. Derek991
"Toshiba has discovered that certain A70/A75 units may lock up or reboot
when the top cover of the palm rest is touched. An issue has been
identified as the result of poor grounding of the right and left speakers
on the palm rest. The location of the speaker covers is such that they are
touched when the laptop is in use.
Please take your unit into your nearest Toshiba Authorized Service center
and they will replace the top cover assembly of the unit which will resolve
the problem. You can contact our support center at 800-457-7777 for the
location of your nearest service location.
Note: Units manufactured after December 3, 2004 will not have this problem"
