    Hello.



    If your battary does not work and doesn't charge then take it out of the laptop. no need for a dead battary in a working laptop, plus not sure if its a good idea to have it in the laptop incases of leekage.



    when your laptop is on with the ac connected does it work ok before it shutsdown of do you get memory errors sometimes. is the ACpower pack the correct power pack for that laptop. make sure the centre pin on the laptop is the same size as the power connecter hole on your power cord as is the pin is smaller then you could simply just have a bad power connection, keep in mind as well that if the ACpower is not the correct adaptor then that is also why the battary does not charge.

    It shuts down when connected to the AC adaptor only? Have you tested it whit the battery out of the laptop?



    If it shuts down with AC power supply only does it shutdown in a specific application? various aplications? specific OS?



    Specific timings? (temperature issues)





    Please respond.

Why is my computer always going off without me shutting down?


Could be malware or corrupt files or a bad connection on battery or power supply.

Toshiba satellite l300 not charging, doesnt work on the power supply


Try removing the battery completely and running it with the power supply connected. If that doesn't work, try borrowing a compatible power supply, or buy a universal one, and try with and without the battery connected.
The problem may be the power supply, in which case the battery won't charge and the laptop won't get any power.

My computer is randomly shutting down. Sometimes it will work and other times it will not. I think the processor is overheating and causing it to unexpectedly shut down. the screen goes black, the power...


Few reason for the shut down
Could be heat, electrical,

1. try cleaning all vents with compress air in order to remore dust and fuzz that can be cloging the vents.
Once this done, verify that fans works proprelly,(check air flow coming out of vents) if they dont they will need to be replace or cleaned out.

2. Check power supply unit, and battery.
Sometime power supply unit is defective, getting too hot and power output is not stable and shuts down the laptop. ( change power supply unit) check if battery hold charge. if not change battery

3. Check connections for looseness and contact

If all seems normal,and none of the mentionned point seem to be defective, the cause is deeper and would need to be looked at by a technician.

Computer shuts down without warning


My first guess is that your laptop is over heating. Even with a fan underneath, if the bottom vent is clogged with dust, the CPU will still get too hot. Does your computer last longer when you run less programs? I would check for dust around the fan inside your laptop. There's a video on youtube showing an acer being disassembled:


Although it may not be your laptop specifically, hopefully it will head you in right direction. It would be a bad idea to blow the dust further back into your computer, so you may have to loosen some screws and buy a electronics duster from an office supply store, but it should solve the problem. I've ran into this a lot over the years, specifically with Acer and Dell computers. Hope this helps!

Shutting off


Try running it without the battery and see if it does the same. Sometimes a bad power supply will cause a short to develop in the battery. If it stops shutting down without the battery the you'll need a new battery.
