Question about Computers & Internet
I also have the same problem as previously posted: My recently purchade Toshiba U400-15D frequently restarts by itself if left plugged-in for charge... Its running Vista and is configured as received. Very strange!
Because its a new unit, I returned it to the reseller with a detailed explanation of the problem. It was returned to me with a one sentence repair report (translated from portuguese): ''Equipment restore and tests, with no abnormal indication''...
And... it comes back with the same problem. Shut it down and it will randomly restart itself !!!
I believe I'll have a long-lasting war with Toshiba in Portugal to have the unit replaced under warrenty.
If that is under warranty return it or replace again,, otherwise run the recovery system maybe some problem of the operating system.. or you installed some software not compatible each other.. or complacated...

How long have you been noticing this behaviour ??
Try this out :--
1.Restart your PC and keep tapping F8 until you get advanced menu options.
2.From the list of options, choose safe mode with networking and press enter.
3.Once you boot to the desktop, notice the computer behaviour.If found Ok then launch Internet explorer and try downloading smitfraudfix and malware bytes to remove malwares/spywares as it seems infected.(If it works fine with safe mode)
You can download smitfraudfix from siri.geekstogo.com/
You can download malware bytes from www.malwarebytes.org
Download them and run setup to install.Clean all the malwares/spywares and hope it helps.
If it doesnt, let me know.
