Shut down suddenly

I have a laptop TOSHIBA Portege A200. Processor Centrino. I bought it in 2005. It shut down suddenly very often when I turn it on again it works only about 5 minutes and it shut down again.

Could you help me to solve the problem?

Thank you

Re: shut down suddenly

Do you get any error-beeps of any kind? Like the battery is going empty? Or does it just go off suddenly? If the first is the case, your power connector in the computer or perhaps the powersupply could be broken. It could sound like your battery doesn't get charged and your computer isn't getting power. Then it will shut down. See if the power/charge indicator is on when connected to the power grid.

If it blacks out suddenly it's probably a more severe problem, but you might try to reinstall the OS (I'm guessing windows), but only as a last resort.

Toshiba Portege R500 hangs when starting up.I have to shut it down again and then start it up for it to work properly.It has windows 7 installed in it

Perhaps you need to disable some of your startup programs. You have ugraded to Win 7? Has this been happening due to the Win 7 upgrade? In Device Manager are ALL the devices working? No unknown devices? Any graphic driver issues?

Is their a way to change the processing unit on my laptop. i have intel centrino and i was just wondering if you are able to change this

Hello Sir,

It depends whether your laptop has a removable processor or not. I f you have a removable one then you can replace it with a better one. Also if you have a centrino processor than you can only change it with a centrino one, a higher end procesor will not work. according to my knowledge most newer laptops dont come with removable processors these days.

Toshiba boots up power light stays on and shuts down, bad m/b ?

I own a Laptop Toshiba Satellite A75-S2131.
This series have a problem with the cooling flow to the processor.
The processor overheats and the laptop shuts down.To solve this particular problem you must tear down the laptop and clean up the processor heatsink (you will find it totally plugged or partially dirty).
Find in the internet the step by step instructions (with photos) for dismantling this laptop. Do not forget to apply thermal paste between processor & heatsink.

I hope this solution helps.

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.

I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe

Toshiba Portege M400 to Vista

Here's a link for Toshiba's UK site. I looked around a bit and they don't seem to offer much in the way of drivers. You might try I've found it to be a good place to find those hard to find drivers, plus it's easier to use than most manufacturer's sites.

Satillite A200 25V(PSAE36-25V086)after install no reboot!!!!!!

See what happens if you try each of the new memory sticks by themselves.
Have you tried the old memory again to see if still turns on?

Also, the max memory is 4GB. And it shouldn't mater how they'er paired up.
