Toshiba Satellite PSLE0C-01208c Vista home premium shutdown

I've had this laptop since january 7th, and in the past week or so it has started to shut down at random.
I had been into the repair place twice already, once because the charging pin inside the laptop had fallen off, and then because my charging chord was defective.

When I sent it in the third time, they couldn't find anything and it didn't shut off for them, so they gave it back to me, and the problem is worsening.
I'm on my desktop computer but spent lots of money on my laptop and want it to work!!

The things I was doing vary.
From browsing the internet, to playing video games such a City of Villains/Heroes.
Or chatting on messengers.
I almost always keep my laptop plugged in so that I can run it better.
It does heat up but the laptop repair guys said my fans are fine and it's not over heating.
When it shuts down there is no warning signs it jut shuts down as if I had been holding in the power button. it just goes blank and all the lights go out, and come back on within a few seconds if its plugged in.
Then, most of the time, when I turn it back on, I get the start up thing saying that windows did not shut down properly, and either I should run start up repair, or I have the screen that gives me the options to start in safe mode or start up normally. At one point when I was doing this, three time in a row I couldn't get past that screen! It would just shut itself down again. other times I've only been running it for a few minutes and it shuts down.
Sometimes, hours. The only time this happens is when I'm in my room. When it would get past the start up in safe mode screen, I took it to my parents room and it started up! when I was playing my games on it downstairs in the living room, it never shut down, and I was down there for hours. I'm not sure if this means anything.

I really don't have the money to pay for it if it's a software issue, and if it is, I'd like to fix it myself before sending it into the laptop guys again!!
I'm very frustrated with this and would appreciate any help.

    Well, the Laptop guys said they ran it a bunch and it never shut down for them at all. So I'm assuming they had the internet on and off. I haven't tried turning the internet off and running it though. My virus program is Avast, and the laptop guys also said I have no virus's, and when I got my laptop back, they left their CD in it, so I made a copy for myself, and have run their virus scans, and haven't found anything.

    does it still shut down when you are not connected to the internet? and what kind of virus protection program do you have? i dont think the fact of location has anything to do with the shut down problem, it is probably just luck.

Toshiba Satellite A75-S231 overheating and unexpected shutdown. I tried dismantling the laptop to clean the fan and heatsink, but I was not able to open it completely. Pls could you guide me and assist me...

I have a Satellite A75-S2292. It did the same thing to me. I just blow the vents & fans out weekly with canned air. I also have an under the laptop cooling fan, to increase the air flow. I haven't had it shut done for months, since I started doing some preventive maintenance.
The changing the thermal paste is not a good repair. Thermal paste will last for at least 20 years, under worse conditions than most computers will ever experience. Removing the processor chip, wiping everything clean & replacing the paste & chip just make more chances for damage.

Toshiba A135-S4527 will not automatically shut down

If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?

Invalid product key Windows Vista Home Premium with Toshiba

this could be because someone took the license key that was origionally installed on your computer, did you lent it out? The same product key can not be activated on 2 computers unless it has multiple licenses. I had this problem, but i simply called microsoft and they shut down the other product key and gave me a new one for free.

Windows Vista will Shutdown but will restart in immediately

You can create a shutdown icon on your desktop that might resolve your issue.

  1. Right-click on the desktop, choose New and then Shortcut.4ffc395.jpg
  2. In the shortcut location box, enter
    • Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
  3. When you've clicked 'Next...', you'll be asked to name the shortcut. Probably best to name it 'Shutdown'
  4. After you click 'Finish' you should now have a new icon that you can double-click to shutdown your computer.
Hope this helps! : )
