If you are using Windows (XP, Vista or 7) then open the Computer properties by clicking on the Computer icon (on desktop or start menu) then go to the Advanced page tab and check if you have the option to automatically restart the system set on in the Startup and Recovery Settings section. If this is on, then Windows will restart the system any time that a critical error is encountered.
The other place to check is in the Windows Event logs (system log) provided this option is enabled. You should be able to access the event logs by right clicking on the Computer icon and then selecting the Manage option followed by opening the Event viewer where you should look for any critical, error or warning entries that may occur at the times when the computer restarts itself (or posted immediately when it restarts).
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.
Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
Toshiba's are notorious dust collectors, try blowing back through the air vents and some clever use of the vacuum cleaner on the intakes can bring it back to life. also check the RAM for dust and dirt on the pins and clean as required. USE ANTI-STATIC Precautions!
If you remember what time it last randomly shut down on you, use the system event viewer to see what errors were given just before it turned itself off. You can access the event viewer in Windows XP by clicking on the Start button, then click on Run, and in the box that pops up type in "eventvwr" and hit enter.
Click on system on the left hand side to view the log files of the system. Browse down until you find the time when your laptop turned off. Hopefully there is a series of errors there. They should be able to tell you something about why it is doing it.
Hope this helps, feel free to post some of the errors back here if you find any!
A restarting system is tricky to diagnose. But it's usually can be broken down into two categories.
Software: If any of your device drivers are corrupted or missing this can restart your system. If you get a blue screen with a lot of white writting momentarily before it restarts then there should be an entry in the event viewer in the management console that may provide some insight. Right click on My Computer and go to Manage, you will see even viewer on the left. Skim though it and read any errors. Otherwise the best thing to do to rule out software as your problem is to reformat and reinstall Windows fresh.
Hardware: This can usually be attributed to the power circuitry in your system. If your power supply has been weakened or the power rectifier circuitry on your motherboard isn't functioning properly then this can cause reboots. I recomend removing any extra hardware that is not needed, for example remove any network card, sound cards, usb devices, printers, extra memory, CD drives, then add them back one at a time. You will either determine the faulty device or verify that your problem is either motherboard or power supply related. It's nearly impossible to rule out the power supply or motherboard unless you have a spare known good power supply to test with. You should also examine your motherboard for any bulging or leaking capacitors.
