Does It Work Plugged Into The Wall?
If So You May Need Another Battery. Or You Can Try To Place A Penny Inside The Battery Door To Hold The Battery Tighter Against The Contacts If The Battery Is Loosing Contact During Operation. Also Check The Cpu Cooling Fan To See If Its Operating. If You Need To Replace It You Can Purchase Them Here

Hi there,

you need to replace the thermal compound on the CPU and heatsink, Use Artic Silver 5, You can get this of ebay for under £5.

You may want to invest in a new fan aswel. :)

My Toshiba A75-S211 overheats and shuts off.


That is common with Toshiba. Check to see if your fans are running. Also, there may be a lot of dust, hair, etc inside the laptop causing it to heat up. I recommend buying a laptop cooler. I got mine for $10 and I never have over heating problems anymore. Hope that helps:)

the issue is likely thermal shutdown (it got to hot) listen to establish whether the fan(s) are working. you will need to take it apart to gain access to the fan area to clean out the dust and dirt.
