Question about Toshiba (225EXTR5)

Computer shuts itself off

The last few times I used my laptop, it "shut off" by itself. It turned right back on and I didn't lose any data...the first time, I thought maybe the battery was low, but it then happened again after I was plugged into outlet. I'm guessing maybe fan is shot. Would appreciate any info. Thanks

Hey Cidney, Sounds like the laptop is overheating, the machine will restart or turn itself off once the temperature goes over 60-65c. Might be a faulty fan or need the thermal paste replaced on the cpu. best bet is to put it into a shop for a free quote if theres anyone near you. afraid i dont think you will be able to fix it yourself, and can sometimes it can be quite costly.. Sorry cant help anymore All the best John

Have a Toshiba now my issue is won't stay on shuts down. Its connected to the wall. I don't know what happen been working up Intel last night...Don't know if its the battery or what.


If unit is connected to wall then it should not be turning off unless you have something wrong with a peripheral or your OS is corrupted. Try running it with just the battery. If the same thing happens it is not the power source but the computer itself. If you think it is the a corrupt operating system, remove the hard drive and using another computer, retrieve any and all files you still want.and then put drive back into original laptop and use your restore disks to reload the unit.

My computer came up with a blue screen that said system error said something about a physical memory dump and that it is shutting down the computer to keep me from losing my files, that was all I got from...


Not necessarily. This usually means an error somewhere in the critical operating system files. whether this is software problem or hardware remains to be seen.
Assuming that you will, sadly; not be able to access the operating system again, you can still access the files and get a back up using a hard drive adapter: http://www.coolmaxusa.com./productDetails.asp?item=CD-350-COMBO&details=overview&subcategory=converter&category=converter
This does involve having another pc to load the files onto. Once the data is backed up a format will indicate if its a hardware issue but hopefully the format will manage any bad sectors. Once the format is complete the hard drive can be placed back in the laptop and an OS can be reloaded.
This all is if you wish to backup, you can just load in an OS cd/recovery disk and let it format the drive and just Install rewriting over any data and formatting around any potential bad sectors on the drive.

System worked for 2 hours then shut off came back on a few times


It shuts down to protect itself from overheating, looks like you tried to use it too much without sorting the problem out.
You can try and give it a good clean out. Google cleaning computers.
I usually use a small brush, my vaccum cleaner and sometimes an air duster

Dell studio one 19 not shutting down how to solve


First, press CTRL + ALT+ DELETE and bring up the task manager. If there is no response, you could try a hard reset. Either hold down the power button for a few seconds untill it shuts off, or switch the power button on back of pc off, or unplug the power. Although do this as a last result as you may lose any unsaved data. When you turn it back on it should say " windows did not shut down correctly " and it will give you a few options. Press enter on " Start Windows Normally ". See if that helps.

My laptop compaq 6735s will only stay on for a few minutes before shutting itself off and not working for a long time. Also, the area where the port is for the laptops charger get's exteremely hot. I don't...


This sounds like *********** board is overheating due to probably dust and fan not working properly. Try using air can to blow some of the stuff of off the fan from the bottom of the laptop but make sure you dont tip the can over while doing this because the air turns in to ice and it will mess up you laptop. If just blowing air don't work then you have to open it and clean it up.Hope this helps.

My laptop turns itself of after 8 minutes - every time i turn my laptop on it lasts for about 8 minutes then turns itself off automatically how do i stop this? My HP laptop keeps shutting itself off after...


Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.
