I have a toshiba laptop which was unexpectedly switching off. The laptop was 2 years old. I did lots of searching online to discover this is a VERY COMMON ISSUE. The problem is, dust blocks the heatsink. When I took my computer to pieces, I found a strip of dust half an inch (1cm) thick covering the back of the heatsink which prevented air flow. If your laptop is a couple of years old, this could be the problem. When I removed this dust, the problem disappeared. If you are computer savvy, then try the following - if not, take it down to a computer shop! 1) Remove the 5 screws holding down the heat sink cover and processor cover. These are on the bottom of the laptop, in the centre, at the back. 2) Remove the 3 screws which hold in the heat sink in place. 3) Remove the heatsink 4) Take the dust out 5) Re-assemble a note: be careful not to get dust in the thermal paste on the cpu - unless you have replacement paste. Good Luck!

Hmartinez, there is a strong possibility that the power management on your computer has failed or is failing. if you have not replaced the battery ever since, i suggest you have the battery checked, or replaced.
you may also try to isolate the problem by plugging the charger to the machine without the battery to check if you will have the same issue, if yes, then there is a possibility that the machine is overheating.
if you have other questions just lemme know./

I had the same problem. I installed a CPU temperature monitor and realised my CPU was overheating and that is why it kept on switching off. I opened up my ACER 5720Z and cleaned the vents which were (very) clogged up, even though my laptop is only 6 months old

Try a new power adapter before you try the other expensive tests and repairs. The adapters are notorium about failing after being used continuously . If you can check the outgoing voltage at the tip where it fits into the DC jack on the laptop would be good. Match the output to the rated voltage needed to peoperly power the laptop.
