Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S355 Notebook
I bought my laptop in August 2005 so it's not two years old. I guess the last year or so I've had problems with it shutting down a few times a day. I use it quite often, perhaps leaving it on 15 hours a day on a normal day. I usually leave it plugged in all the time which I know is one reason why my battery now lasts about 10 minutes, literally.
Anyway, sometimes when the computer shuts off, it's very hot underneath. But sometimes, and more puzzling, it will shut down and it won't be overheated. I try to keep the back end elevated to create more airspace underneath for the exhausted air to circulate and cooler air to enter. That helps but it still shuts down quite frequently.
And usually, if I have Task Manager open, the computer is working hard with CPU utility at 100%.
I'm living abroad in India right now and there is no BestBuy to take it too. ;) Have any suggestions?
Try running a good malware program like AdAware. Often these spyware programs can driver your processor to 100%, causing it to heat up too much and shutting things down. Once you have the anit-spyware loaded, bring your system up in safe mode. This will allow the spyware to search the hidden partitions on your fd, along with the rest of the disk.
