Question about AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800 3800+, 2 GHz Processor in a Box (PIB)
When I start the computer, the CPU and its heatsink is hot in 2 minutes . Then it stops working without turning off.When I start again, it happens similarly. Please give me some advice !
If the CPU Fan is plugged into the wrong post on the motherboard, it won't read the temperature or thermal indicator. Make certain it is plugged in the pin port called CPU/Fan.

There is a problem with AMD CPUs overheating. If its overheating then please don't use it b4 eradicating the cause. It may permanently damage it thermally. Clean the heat sink and recheck. If the problem still persists, touch the heatsink and feel if its really hot or not.B'coz the sensor on the heatsink might be giving wrong information to the system. If nothing work, then replace with a water cooled heatsink.
Hope the procedure works.

This a overheating problem, first thing you can do here is to clean the heat sink fan of your processor and that should correct the problem,,,,

It sounds like you have a couple of potential problems. First it could be the fan is not working due to failure or not being plugged in properly. Second is that you need to put Thermal Paste between the processor and the heatsink. If you have not done this before, I suggest seeking out a friend that has to help out. There is many kinds of thermal paste and not one is universal. Find out the one that the CPU manufacturer recommends.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you
MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you
internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this
normal. Open your internet browser and download and install
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:
"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and
install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the
site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not
click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui

If you machine still shuts off after 3 minutes maybe it is running hot.
3 things that cause a computer to run hot.
1. Dust, dust in the vents, dust around the fans, cpu and heatsink.
2. A fan that is not working
3. The Thermal Paste around the Cpu and Heatsink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.
One sign of a computer overheating is to turn it
back on immediately after it shuts off. if it will not power back up
and stay on then it is running hot. If you let it sit a while then turn
it back on and you are successful, then it was running hot.

I decided to use a shop vac to suck the dust out and it worked. I tested it by letting the machine run all night and it worked. It's been a couple of weeks now and I'm glad I did it. I was ready to take the machine apart, now I'm glad I didn't. I'd suggest you use a heavy duty shop vac to clean out the fan and heat sinks first.I agree. Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.
If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
