1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my pc keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It's nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I decided to use a shop vac to suck the dust out and it worked. I tested it by letting the machine run all night and it worked. It's been a couple of weeks now and I'm glad I did it. I was ready to take the machine apart, now I'm glad I didn't. I'd suggest you use a heavy duty shop vac to clean out the fan and heat sinks first.I agree. Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.
If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.

The fan may be cluttered with dust. Clean it. Then turn the unit on and watch to see if the fan does indeeed work. If it does not, shut the unit down till you get a replacement fan. The fact that the unit shuts down is a saftey feature to keep your Proceesor from being damaged.
If cleaning it works, your processor should be ok.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
If the battery is removed, it should still start up with the charger connected. A lot of laptops develope problems with the jack where the power supply plugs in, from constantly plugging & unplugging the charger. The jack in the back of the computer is probably bad.
Dear Sear First of all i aprechiat your willing to offer me a solution for the problem (flash cards are not responding).My laptop has thise model; Toshiba Satellite A200 - 1 GB - intel(R)Core(TM)2 CPU T5300 @ 1,7 MHz.
I solved the problem just with shuting down the mashin, that's all.

Try running a good malware program like AdAware. Often these spyware programs can driver your processor to 100%, causing it to heat up too much and shutting things down. Once you have the anit-spyware loaded, bring your system up in safe mode. This will allow the spyware to search the hidden partitions on your fd, along with the rest of the disk. R-.
