I have a Toshiba laptop with windows vista which randomly shuts down (blue screen).
I've tried twice to do a restore to an earlier dates and both were not successful. I am connected to AC and battery I have only holds a charge for a few minutes and not sure if this may be causing the problem.

Thanks, Clyde

Thank you
It is old hardware. Old hardware fails. There is no fix. Vista is no longer supported.

Thank you
I also want to add:

Even if the drive was good, and everything worked, it would not run a modern Operating Systems! It is old architecture. Meaning: CPU would not meet requirements to upgrade the OS!
