The cpu get overheated and will shtdown to protect it. The fan continues to run until a CPU safe temperature is reached / sustained.

1. Use laptop on flat surface, not on pillow, carpet, bed, etc. that will restrict air flow. Using a can of compressed air, clear the air vents.

2. If the symptom continues, then the heat conductive paste between the cpu chip and the heatsink is no longer effective (hardened, too thin, etc.). Remove the heatsink and add thermal paste

Hi..

If the laptop shutdown maybe it cause overheating.
Laptop shuts down? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

Good luck !!!

Regards

Laptop freezes beeps


Is it up on a table on in your lap?
There are vents on the sides and bottom that need to be kept clear so the unit can cool itself, you can visually inspect those to make sure no dust/dirt are clogging them up and use compressed air to clean.
If you are snuggling in bed with it or have papers close to side of vents, or using in lap covering those holes, you should feel the heat, heat destroys laptops and if you continue to use it in that manner, if that is the issue, you will have a failed unit shortly.
It is most likely beeping and shutting down from excessive heat.

The lap top power supply goes off automatically while working sessions


It seems the game giving lots of pressure to your problem and there might be some dirt which is blocking your processor to cool down, So first I'll suggest you to Clean the Processor FAN dust properly and apply heat sink paste on top of the fan.

P35-611 shuts down while plugged in but not while on battery


using a multi-purpose duster spray can seems to have solved this for me. i dusted the keyboard and a few other areas(carefully) with a q-tip. i wasn't able to fully open my laptop but i sprayed and q-tipped a little on the inside(i couldn't get to the fan which supposedly gathers the most dust) and when i feel the computer getting too warm,i'll spray the keyboard and the back of the computer and my computer ,which was shutting down **** near constantly, hasn't spontaneously shut down since,and i took out the battery. if your problem is dust,this might be at least a partial solution. if you need to take your laptop apart,there are videos on youtube,although like i say i wasn't able to take my p35-s611 all the way apart without possibly damaging the machine.

My Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Will not stay on for more than 15 minutes. It then shuts it's self down?


There are three possible reasons for that.

1. it's overheating. Feel to see if there is air moving out of it (when it's running) and if that air is hot. Also see if the bottom feels hot (it always is warm but shouldn't be hot hot), or if it feels hot around the touch pad then it is definitely overheating. Lint, dust, pet hair etc gathers inside and blocks the fan. The CPU has to have air movement in order not to over heat. If it's hot it needs to be cleaned out which is something that has to be done very carefully so as not to burn out the bearings of the fan nor push the dust in further.

2. The power adapter could be bad. They do go out. To replace one make sure it is matched to the one you have, for that model. Not all adapters are the same.

3. It could be the battery, tho with a toshiba is will run plugged in on a low battery.

Toshiba "A" series were notorious for overheating due to the way they were made though the A-15 is not one of those with the problems that way. (There was a class action suit over the earlier "A's" because of it. But the most likely reason for shutting down like that is over heating...

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.


try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

My laptop won't start... please


Not sure but it sounds like the hard drive is causing the problem. Lap tops are set up so that any problems with them they shut down, and a bad hard drive will shut you down the way you are describing. The only test i know for this is to remove the hard drive and see if you can get the computer to at least boot. If you can with no hard drive then it usually means the drive has failed. Not sure if this will help, but hope it helps.

If the fan is spinning quite fast then the overheating problem is most likely dust clogging the fan and heat-sink assembly. Blasting air into the fan and heat-sink can only make it worst as you are forcing the dust further into the heat-sink fins.
Remove the panels covering the vent and fan/heat-sink, loosen the dust and vacuum to remove this dust off the fan and heat-sink. Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
After re-assembling and boot up, if you still have heating problems, addition cooling can be employed by purchasing a laptop fan assisted cooling pad. Place the laptop on top of this pad and the fans on the pad will direct additional cooling air to the laptop's vents.

My lap top keeps shutting down


This is normally due to it over-heating. It will turn itself off as a safety measure to prevent itself from becoming damaged.
Make sure the laptop is on a hard, level surface with nothing blocking the air vents.
