Computer shuts down even during operation system install
Hey, my computer had an overheat problem a few weeks ago, took a time to take care of it, but I sent it to Toshiba, and got there a new fan or cooling system, idk exactlly.
the heting problem was solved,but a new problem appeared.
Browsing the net, doing stuff on computer, installing,deleting-everything works fine, but when joining game, the computer shut down after a min or so, so I called Toshiba, and they guided me to re foramt the computer, I've done that, but the error is now wroser, the computer shuts down even during the install procces, means my computer is pretty much useless at the moment, what could the problem be?
Re: Computer shuts down even during operation system...
Reinstalling operating system. For best results wipe the hard drive completely clean..I mean everything...its the only way to make sure ALL junk, viruses, etc are gone. Personally I use a program called Kill Disk. It does a great job and its fairly fast. Once its done install whatever you want, and when asked to format again by windows during install choose no. I've always done it like this. Its a bit more time, but never had any problems witn it afeter installin OS.
THe shutting down is your laptop's thermal protection. It is trying to keep the CPU from being destroyed. You should stop using it until you fix it, or you will destroy it.
The fans are not hard to replace and toshiba disassembly is fairly straight forward. Just get your #1 and #2 phillips head screw drivers and pay attention to how you take it apart.
Call Toshiba and order replacement fans for your laptop as they will not set you back very much.
It is obvious that your computer shutdown because it is overheating. try to get a chill mat to place it under computer. you said that it does not shut down when is on battery??? do you play games when is on battery?....computers normally overheat during large processing tasks such us playing video games. Try to fans clear do not place your laptop ontop of your bed or anything that will obstruct the fan under computer.

when you have been driving and the vehicle is at operating temperature , then lift the bonnet and check to see if the coolant fan is still running after you turn the engine off. Some systems allow the fan to run for up to 10 minutes after shut down
You may have a virus. You may have corrupted files? Start by trying a Boot in Safe Mode. If that works, while in Safe MOde, Go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore.
Choose to restore to an earlier time. Pick a date a few days ago when you know it worked fine. Even a week or two ago is fine. Let it do its thing. When it restarts (automatic) hope fully it will be fine. Up date your anti virus and do a full system scan.
Computer may be shutting od due to following reasons:
Computer Virus There are higher chances of a computer shutting down due to the interference of a computer virus. The virus gets into the computer and fiddles with crucial sections of the operating system, which may cause the system to shut down automatically. You need to install a good antivirus software and get the computer scanned thoroughly for any malware and viruses. Also see to it that the operating system and all hardware drivers are updated.
Power Supply The computer power supply unit is an equipment that is installed in the cabinet to provide power to the system for operation. Your computer can shut down, if there is not enough power supplied to it for handling the programs running. If you are using the computer for running intensive software such as PC games, the system would require more power than what is actually available. Another reason can be overheating of the power supply. After the power supply is used for a substantial period of time, there is a possibility of dust getting collected inside it. And this may cause it to overheat, resulting in the shutdown of the desktop computer. If the power supply is at fault, you may need to get a new one installed.
Overheating of the Motherboard and the Processor As with the case of dust getting collected in the power supply, the computer motherboard and the processor can also collect dust, which may be the reason for their overheating. This may also be one of the reasons why your computer keeps shutting down and restarting. You need to open the computer cabinet and clean the dust off the computer parts. The CPU board and the processor can also overheat because of many applications running. If this is the case, then it is suggested to keep the running of applications as less as possible or increase the size of Random Access Memory (RAM). Bad capacitors on the motherboard is also one of the reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down very often.
The 'Automatically Restart' Setting If you are using Windows XP operating system, there is a setting that indicates the computer to reboot if it detects an error in the system's operation. In order to check if this is the problem, click on 'Start' and 'Control Panel', then select 'Performance and Maintenance'. Click on 'System', then the 'Advanced' option, and select 'Settings' from the 'Startup and Recovery' section. You will find an 'Automatically restart' option, which you need to uncheck for preventing the system from rebooting. Read more on computer keeps restarting on its own.
These were the possible reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down and rebooting. You also need to check if the power cables are properly connected to the cabinet and to the UPS, as loose connections can also be a reason for system shutdown. The most common cause of the computer getting shut down or restarted is due to overheating of the power supply and other internal computer parts.
That can be caused by a number of things , your best bet is to take a look @ this guide...since there are so many things it could be , this breaks it down to make it easier to figure out where it is coming from:
