My Toshiba Satellite L300D keeps shutting down when I start it up

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D running Windows Vista and whenever I turn it on it gets to the login page and starts shutting down. Nothing seems to work. I've tried starting it in safe mode and a system restore but then it says configuring updates stage: 1 of 3 and it gets to stage 3 and shuts down again. It shuts down and starts up again and keeps going. Anyone know what I can do?

    I have exactly the same problem with my Acer laptop. It's hard to know what to do as the computer denies me access to changing any settings as it doesn't even let me log in. It just shuts down then re-starts, and the same problem happens all over again and again...until I switch it off manually

Laptop goes on some few minutes after being shut down.


you cannot blame windows xp because according to me it is such OS that it removes many problems of windows 7 and vista.windows 7 and vista makes your pc much slow and many features dont work but windows xp is free from these errors.actually you hear the sound but nothing appears on the screen.this is because your cpu fan is running which takes somes time to stop.may be some problem of the hardware especially the mainboard.go to any repair shop and just get it checked.

Toshiba l300d just turns off


You may have a bad battery, try running it on AC only. If it still does it, I would supect the cooling fan if not working or it is plugged up with dust and debris. Usually a shut down is caused from an overheat condition. The computer will shut down to protect itself. You may have to get a hold of a computer tech to resolve this.

Screen goes crazy and windows 7 shuts down -------oh this is a new install and was doing the same thing on vista.


Don't want to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like the solder may be starting to let go on the GPU. Graphics Processing Unit. How long does it run before it shuts down? You may have an overheating issue. Blow out the fans and ensure that they are running. If its still under warranty, get it checked out

Problems booting windows vista on toshiba satellite l300d. ''Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change may be the cause''. My Toshiba had viruses so i restored it with the hdd recovery...


You may need to re-install the operating system all over again as you had tried to restore your computer using Restore Disc but failed. In these cases, you will have to try to wipe all your data and install OS once again.
