My laptop turns off by itself.

  • womenfly May 09, 2008

    if I put my p35-s611 ontop of two bottles of frozen water in doesnt shut off any more.

    so it must be a cooling issue.

    I dont have to be using it...just running on the table..and it will just...shut hibernate or standby..just flat out goes blank and shuts off.

    I vacuumed the two fans quite a bit of dust.. I try to remember to do that often...but I was tardy this time.

    It seems to happen when it is sitting on the table..not so much when sitting on my knees. Of course on my knees they get hot and I lift it up...and sometimes just stand it on its edge for awhile....long before it gets hot enuf to shut off.

    the P4 chip is commonly used in a desktop so when you cram that chip into a confined space as a laptop chassis you will have this over heating issue. there are no recall about the problem, but plenty of do-it yourself-er rigging up things to keep good air flow under the laptop. beware if you keep restarting the device after it shuts off you risk have to have the motherboard replaced. best bet is to get a dual core laptop which runs cooler. Toshiba customer service is **** and I believe it is located in India.

I had tried propping it up and setting fans to blow on it and that helped some. But then I stumbled on the answer that has kept me problem free ever since: doubling my RAM. My fans no longer run all the time like they used to, it never since had the dreaded "shut-off" problem and it is fast again - like it was out of the box.

Try using compressed air from a bottle or better yet, from an industrial compressor. Spray the air jet into the fan vents at the bottom and rear of the computer, and watch how much dust comes out. It will likely fix the shut-off problem until it gets dusty again. Best bet would be to open the computer up and spray the air on all the parts. Hope this helps,

I get the same problem. Try giving the laptop more breathing room underneath such as propping it up.

Toshiba satellite p35-s609 screen darken.

It is almost certainly the LCD inverter which is the cause of your issue. It ism ore common for the inverter to develop a fault than a backlight bulb on the LCD (I used to work in a Toshiba repair centre).
Replacing the inverter should be simple, just make sure the unit is powered off with the battery removed so you don't get an electric shock.
Hope this helps,

Satellite P35-S611 has trouble charging

If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.

Half of screen flickering

Yes, the probability is that either the circuitry that drives the screen, or the screen itself is on the verge of failing. It is also remotely possible that the backlight is failing. In either case, the likelihood is that a screen replacement is in order. Take it to a computer shop that specializes in Laptop repairs - or call Computer Geeks.

My toshiba satellite p35-s605 shuts itself off

It certainly could be a case of a bad motherboard but i would check the air vents for dust that may have clogged up, even though the fan may appear to be working fine if there is dust built up inside the unit there is nowhere for the hot air to vent, this will in turn cause the laptop to shut down unexpectedly.
Also go into the BIOS and set it to default settings just in case someone has set a shutdown temperature.

Screen problem.

Does your LCD look like this or similiar? (below) If it does, there should be a female plug similiar to the picture also below.
Hook smaller end of cable to your laptop, the other end to your external monitor. Turn on your laptop. If the vertical lines are not present then its probably your LCD, which will more than likely have to be replaced. If lines are present, then like tom19511 said it may be the video drivers. I've had this same problem with my Toshiba Satellite p35 5 times already. Toshiba had to replace my LCD each time. LCD's are more expensive than an inverter. Good luck, I hope you get it fixed.
