You'll have to check if windows is loading before it restarts. If windows starts loading before it shuts down and just loops all over again, you can easily fix this by simply re-installing your operating system. you can do this by booting from the recovery discs that came with the laptop. Now if the rebooting cycle happens before windows starts loading then this could either be a RAM or a motherboard issue and will need to be serviced.

If you don't have a copy of the recovery discs, you can always call Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 and purchase one from them.

Restart laptop and it fails to boot up


Have you tried hitting "esc" key repeatedly once you start the computer? This or the F11 key should take you to the black screen that lets you select to reboot in safe mode etc.
If it does, toggle down to the start in safe mode, let it boot up, then shut down. After shutting down, I have been able to reboot computer into normal mode.
Hope this helps.

When i want to shut down my laptop it wont shut down. it keeps saying shutting down. I have to turn of my battary and put it back. this is not the best solution iv checked all my program files and all are...


Start-Run - MSCONFIG
unselect all the startup items and reboot. Then check if it shuts down properly (which it should now) - then go through each startup item with a reboot inbetween to see which is the troublesome one.
Bear in mind you may disable your antivirus program doing this, so make sure this one is reselected after your troubleshooting.

My computer keeps showing rapair recommened or start up normally. what is the problem


If you close your computer without using the windows bar button, it will show the repair message on startup. You should always use the "turn off computer" in the start menu to shut down your pc.

My computer runs window 7 and it keeps shutting down for no reason and also it keeps freezes for sometime.


Reboot the computer in "Safe" mode and run it for a while and see if the same problems occur. If it doesn't, then I would suspect it is a software and not a hardware problem.

If you think it is a software problem, reboot the computer into safe mode again. Now click the start button and in the search box type MSCONFIG

When the window pops up click the "Selective Startup" button and then on the startup tab. Deselect all the checked boxes, click apply and ok, reboot the computer normally.

Now only the essential services will load and no programs will automatically load. If the computer continues to run normally, then you can go back into MSCONFIG go to the strat tab and start checking a few boxes to start again, like antivirus and malware first. Reboot the computer and see if it freezes with those programs running....if it does then you know one of those is the culprit, if not click a few more on and reboot until you find the trouble software.

WINDOWS WONT START UP when i try to repair it it says it is dowhloading windows and then a minute or two later it says it could not start and to turn off the laptop


  1. Hi, try rebooting the computer in one of the different "Modes" at startup, when the window prompts, "press the F2 button, select either "recovery mode" or "Safe" mode, if the computer, recycle back to the "Option start modes,; choose "Normal Mode." Next go to the Computer, open, and select "Properties," click to "Tools," in the (Error checking) window, select the (Check Now), you may have to choose "when the computer startup option." click "Apply and OK." When you start the computer again, a "Full" Disk Scan, will begin; be patience! this can take awhile. After the scan is complete, you should have an idea of what the problem is exactly. If you need further assistance afterwards? I'll be looking for an updated "Post" Thanks"Did this solution help?"

Toshiba satellite A70-KL1 notebook shuts down


Scan the Computer using any latest updated anti virus program for any potential threat.

If the computer is not infected by any virus or trojan then you may also try performing System restore to the time when the Computer worked normally.

If the Computer keeps shutting down randomly after turning ON then the Power Supply Unit in the Notebook requires service.

Problem not fix


Boot the machine in safe mode, then reboot as normal, if the problem persists after reboot did you
install software proir to this try reinstall. Use anti virus and spyware malware scans etc.

Running in safe mode, is exactly that safe while most problems exist in OS.
Let me know how you get on.
