You could have a corruption in the script or a process that won't stop. Try holding down on the power button until the screen goes dark and all lights go out. That is a hard shut down without saving settings. After it shuts down (finally) power it back up. Hit the F8 key on your keyboard the moment your machine goes to the black screen before it can load windows. That is the safe mode. Move the highlight up to safe mode or safe mode with networking and allow it to continue to boot up. Then, when it's completed the process and windows displays that it is in safe mode, do a normal restart. That should resolve the issue.
Your processor is overheating. Or the fan for the CPU is dead or the way to eject the warm air is blocked. Try to work with your laptop on a table, if the problem persists, is the fan other way you have to work everytime on the table.
if your pc shuts down in 10 second with black sreen it means that your laptop memory was not detected.
reinsert your laptop memory (RAM) .. be sure to clean it especially at the contact points.
laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it
works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.”
This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About
15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an
overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the
most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with. Indications of
laptop overheating problem:
The keyboard and the
bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
The CPU fans are
working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much
louder than before.
The laptop suddenly
shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop
was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10
minutes of operation.
The laptop works fine
when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory
demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video
editing software, etc.).
If the CPU heatsink is
not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and
just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on
the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if
your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely
Open the laptop case,
so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can
access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop.
Sometimes (for example Toshiba
Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way
the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes
unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to
replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the
heatsink with compressed air.
I would also
recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new
grease for better heat conductivity.
powerdrain pc first. remove battery and ac adapter then press down power button for 15-20 sec. turn it on and check if it will still shut down. observe if it is hot to touch before it shuts down, might also be an overheat issue. if so, need to replace fan and heatsink.
Try going into safe mode upon startup by hitting the F8 button. If it does then hit safe mode to get into your computer. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Follow the wizard to restore your computer to a date earlier than when you started having problems. Let me know if you have any problems or questions.
