This is a virus attack. most windows are configured to combat an attack by doing this. If you can, i would use safe mode to access the back up directory. use this directory to restore your CPU. hopefully the virus hasn't defeated the bios block. if the virus has penetrated the back up directory, you will have to re install the entire OS.

Toshiba satellite p300 shutdown


You also should change the thermal paste. If you want to play games, please choose normal PC. I think you are asking too much from your laptop.

My computer is on but no picture. It says windows was not shut down properly


Hello Pattiaknight,Make a desktop shortcut to shutdown and include a switch that forces all open apps to shut down without warning.

Just right click the desktop, New, Shortcut, type:

Shutdown -f

Shutdown -f closes any open programs without warning.

Now instead of shutting down the usual way, just use that shortcut to shutdown. If the error stops it means some program wasnt shutting down properly on occasion.

Please let me know if you any further questions or concerns.Also please rate it if you like the answer,it helps alot.
Thanks.

My laptop turned off but it has 35% remaining battery


Laptop turns off suddenly? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed.

Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

The computer will just randomly do a windows shutdown and then restart. Cleaned, changed the power supply and still does it.

Check the CPU fan if it is spinning and also the CPU itself put thermal paste. So that the heat from CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.

My Toshiba m205 4806 shuts down spontaneously. The lap top feels warm but the fan is running. any suggestions?


The cpu get overheated and will shtdown to protect it. The fan continues to run until a CPU safe temperature is reached / sustained.

1. Use laptop on flat surface, not on pillow, carpet, bed, etc. that will restrict air flow. Using a can of compressed air, clear the air vents.

2. If the symptom continues, then the heat conductive paste between the cpu chip and the heatsink is no longer effective (hardened, too thin, etc.). Remove the heatsink and add thermal paste

Computer shutsdown unexpectedly


It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.

Shut down icon


That is a strange problem.
I will help you to create a shortcut on your desktop for that icon, whenever you need to shutdown your computer, just click that shortcut on the icon.

Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s

The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Click the Next > button.

In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter
Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)

Click the Finish button.

Whenever you want to shutdown your computer, click the shortcut on your desktop that says ShutDown My Computer, and your comptuer will shut down the usual way, the way it used to shutdown.
