    Under what circumstances? What are you doing when it shuts down? Are the power options set to shut it down after a specified amount of inactivity? Are you running on battery power and is the remaining battery time running below the preconfigured threshold? We need details if you want a solution.

HI- I have one and it shuts down to. For us it was a problem with overheating and dust in the laptop. I beleive there are heat sensors inside the laptop that go, so that could be it. For the most part, when it shuts down, we have found it to be dust as after we clean it, it doesn't happen as much. For the dust- the first time blew air into the fan outlets (both of them) and a ton of dust came out. Sounds simple, but it worked. A tell tale sign may be if your laptop sounds louder than it normally does. We use the compressed air can every so often and even just put the vacum nozle over the fans (you'll hear them whirl and see dust coem out). I also have the lap top sitting on a "vent filter" like people use for thier heting/ac vents (WEB Electrostatic Vent Filters).They come in 4x12 sheets and are cheap. The fans **** up a ton of dust and this helps keep some of it out. Good luck...Steve

A75-S229 won't recognize addition of 1GB of RAM. Added KTT3311 from Toshiba. Have rebooted twice and still shows 512MB of RAM.


Remove both sticks of RAM. Insert the "new" RAM where the "old" RAM was, and see if your computer reports "zero" RAM or 1GB of RAM. If the latter, put the "old" RAM into the "second" slot, and see if the detected RAM is the sum of the two sticks.

Hello My Toshiba Satellite a75 s229 Notebook Screen is Black and Glass inside screen looks cracked. Laptop fell 3'' ft. off table onto carpeted floor. Laptop powers up fine and I can hear windows start up...


Hi there,

The way to find out if it's just the screen is to connect the laptop to an external monitor. Pay attention to the F keys when you connect the laptop. On most Toshibas, you'll see a small depiction on the F5 key of a laptop next to a monitor. You either have to press that key alone, or hold down the fn key and then press the F5 key and let go to transfer the signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows up good and you can perform all other functions on your laptop while viewing the monitor, you need only replace the laptop LCD. If it does not display correctly, then you're into the next round of troubleshooting.

Hope it works as above.

Good Luck
