Random shutdowns without a blue screen are usually due to a faulty memory module inside the PC. Download and burn memtest from memtest.org to a CD. The boot from CD and proceed to do a memory test.

SOURCE: Toshiba M35X-S349 (Freezes Periodically)

Update: I looked at the plug connecting the HD to the PC and pulled it about 1/2 way back off and reinserted into machine. I then pulled the HD back out and noticed that it was not all the way pushed back on and it wasnt parallel to the HD. Basically I am thinking that the HD is not sitting properly in the bay for some reason or another, but I have been running 10+ hours with no problems as of yet. I did reformat the HD so I am going down that road of reloading and letting run awhile, reboot, repeat. Not sure if solution, but looking real good at this point.

Hmm, could be an overheating problem.

Do you have any temperature monitoring software on your laptop you could use to check the cpu temperature while watching streaming video?

If not try downloading and installing this.

SOURCE: Instantaneous shutdown with no warnings!

Software issue or error
Errors generated by software programs can cause a computer to reboot unexpectedly or without warning. If you are running Windows XP see the below section "For Windows XP users" before continuing. If you are not running Windows XP or following the below steps still cause your computer to reboot without warning. Boot your computer into Safe Mode, and let the computer run in Safe Mode.

If the computer is still rebooting in Safe Mode the issue is likely not software related but something else, skip to the next section. If the computer is not rebooting in Safe Mode it is likely you have software related issue. We would recommend you run through the basic troubleshooting section for your operating system.
For Windows XP users
Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD. Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP.
From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
Click the Properties option.
In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
Click Ok.
Now if the computer generates and error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.
Hardware issue or error
Any failing hardware component in your computer could cause your computer to unexpectedly generate an error and/or reboot without warning. If you have recently attempted to add a new hardware device, remove that device to make sure it is not causing your issues.
Make sure you are not encountering any hardware conflicts by viewing Device Manager for errors.

New drivers can also cause this issue, if you have recently performed any hardware driver updates you may wish to try an earlier version of the drivers.

If you have updated drivers and removed any hardware that could be causing this issue and continue to experience random reboots, it's possible that the memory is bad in the computer.

Finally, hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.
Computer virus
Computer viruses such as the blaster virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted.
If you believe your computer may be infected with a virus or are uncertain if your computer is infected with a virus make sure your virus scanner definitions are up to date.

Heat related issue
Many computer today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets to hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.
You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working (processor fan and case fan) and/or if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.
Users may also be able to determine how hot their computer is by onboard thermal sensors, if your computer comes equipped with these sensors make sure your CPU is not running to hot.
Issue with operating system
If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting.
After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit.
If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you reinstall your version of Microsoft Windows.

Runs great for 10 min then stops. Once cool will restart and runs great for another 10 min. Do B&S have a thermal overheat shutdown?


No overheat protective shutdown. You could have vapor locking of your fuel line, could depend on how far away your fuel filter is from the carburetor. or the ignition coil is failing.

I hope this helps.

After using my cf-27, it may run for 5 min. or it may run for 30 min. but then it will shut down. lose power. i do have bad batteries


Your CF-27 performs a thermal shutdown protection the moment it detected a hardware problem. Make sure that the vent holes are not blowing off too much heat. If it does, one or more fans inside went down.

Also, does it shutdown by itself even if plugged into a power adapter? And since you have a bad battery, it time that you change them for a new one; constant shutdown of the laptop would further damage the system.

Husqvarna 323L gas trimmer runs & starts great but looses power after 10-15 min and if you give it gas it dies. let it cool and it runs great for another 10-15min. trimm has less than 5 hours


You have a clogged gas cap. Try this: The next time you run your trimmer and it starts to die, loosen the gas cap. It should start running again. It sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?! Well, give it try. Clear the breathing holes form debris, or buy a new gas cap.

Shutting off


i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.

At witts end


Give the vents round the side and underneath a hoover out first, then check in acer e manager, there you should see settings for your fan, HDD and hibernation , you can set the fan on all the time or default, check it's set correctly and see if you resolve the issue. Turn hibernation off and HDD idle shutdown off to see if any change in shutdown. Does the pc shut down in any particular programme?
