Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
My laptop keeps shutting down at random times. I hear the fan running, I make sure that there is space allowed for air movement and when it does it it doesn't necessarily feel that warm. When it shuts off, I can turn it back on immediately and it will run fine for a a while or it might stay which makes me wonder if it is something other then overheating.
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.
