My toshiba satellite p35-s605 shuts itself off

My toshiba satellite p35-s605 has been having problems for a long time. It does this thing where it will just randomly shut off for no reason. I scanned it in case it had a virus, but it didn't. I even sent it away to have it looked at because I thought it might have been the fans underneath overheating, but it wasn't and they formated it, but the problem was still there. I tried buying a new battery and also a new charger, but neither of them help. Now my computer is to the point where when i try to turn it on, it will get only as far as the XP welcome screen and it will turn itself off and the lights on the front go out. My friend said he thought it was the mother board. Is this the case or could there be another reason for it?

    I'll give that a shot, but would something like that cause connection problems? Like...my charger will be plugged in and sometimes it will work and sometimes it wont. Also, the only way i can even run it is if it's plugged into it. It wont even turn on or light up if it's not connected to the ac adapter.

Hi,
It certainly could be a case of a bad motherboard but i would check the air vents for dust that may have clogged up, even though the fan may appear to be working fine if there is dust built up inside the unit there is nowhere for the hot air to vent, this will in turn cause the laptop to shut down unexpectedly.
Also go into the BIOS and set it to default settings just in case someone has set a shutdown temperature.



Regards.

Toshiba Satellite Pro P35-S605 beeps upon power up then crashes and reboots.


Can you get into Safe Mode? I suspect your configuration needs tweeking.

Also I would immediately go into the Bios and make the boot order be CD, HD.. etc. Also make note of any hidden partitions such as H, or K. Those sometimes house a mirror of the factory version of XP... like when it was new.


Good luck

My laptop keeps shutting donw after a short period of time and the cpu area is hot during this time. any help


Clogged heatsink and fan / copper radiator. You need to remove the CPU cover (if possible) and hoover around the fan area to remove dust and debris. You mat have to take it apart to get to the cooling parts though. IF you chosoe to remove the heatsink to clean thoroughly, remember to apply some CPU grease between the cpu and heatsink.

Satellite (A75S206) runs well from outlet but never from battery. Was told that mobo can't accept dc. Need new mobo. True?


hello loyd516,

Have you tried a new battery? They are much much cheaper, and a whole lot easier to replace than a motherboard.

Here are replacement batteries that I found searching with Google.
http://www.google.com/products?q=Satellite+A75-S206+battery&hl=en

According to Toshiba, there has been a battery recall for your specific model.
If that is the case I would definitely contact Toshiba support about it. Maybe you will get a free battery out of the deal. Who knows.
Here is the link and the list(your model is highlighted)

What do you do regarding the toshiba satellite powering down


Depending on a few things, this may be a feature or a problem.

Does it seem to shut down within a specific time period?

Does this time period remain constant, and change only if on battery vs. plugged in?

If this is the case then it probably your power management settings.

Check the control panel, and configure them to your preference.

To access the Power Options in the Control Panel in XP:
Start > Control Panel > Power Options

There you will see specific settings regarding monitor, hard disks and standby. Your machine is most likely going into standby, check the time, and select something more appropriate for your needs or disable it all together.

In Vista, you will see a more streamlined set of options. "Always On/Plugged In" "Minimal Power Saving" Etc. would be the best choice

The choice is yours.

Let us know.
Good luck

Verticle line down the middle of lcd monitor.


This is a common problem with LCD screens. It is pixel line damage and the screen is permanently damaged and is not repairable. It will probably get worse. The only answer is to replace it
