Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook
I think you were on the right track with overheating. Many laptops have more than one set of input and output air vents. Maybe you cleaned out one but missed another one. Since you said the laptop turns off when you place it on the floor I'd look for partially clogged vents on the bottom of computer. Brush away any external dust on the vents with an old toothbrush. Then try blowing air through the vent holes with one of those cans of compressed air made for dusting off keyboards. Sometimes the dust is buried inside the machine. I once worked on a Sony laptop that I had to take apart to completely clean out the vents.
