Cooked motherboard, blown fuse, blown power pack.......
It's time to take the laptop to a qualified technician; if there is a fuse, then it is _not_ an "end-user" task to disassemble the laptop, to change the fuse. If it is _not_ a fuse, then the technician needs to do more trouble-shooting than what you, as a "user", currently know how to do.

My laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro M70) freezes (a
There's no M70 model, so I'm assuming you're talking abut a Satellite Pro M10, M15 series laptop. If the slightest movement hangs it or causes BSOD, then my guess is ... well ... I'll let you have it: the weaknesses of this models are: (1) bad memory socket (the upper socket),or (2) bad sound card socket. The one that's easiest to access is the upper memory socket - remove the installed memory from that socket, and see if your machine will still hang or blue-screen. I don't know if anyone still fixes these sockets (I do), but you can get around it by installing a larger capacity memory into the lower socket and skipping the upper socket altogether.
