    My Toshiba keeps shutting down randomly, shuts off when you pull out the charger even though the battery is fully charged. I sent it out to be repaired twice and they replaced the logic board twice and battery and it worked for about 3 months and its shutting down randomly. I will never buy a Toshiba again!!

Have you upgraded the memory on it? If you have more then one stick, then remove 1 and try it. Put that stick back in and Try the other one.

My labtop wont load my desktop, but the screen comes on.


this might sound really silly but some laptops after a while get a glitch where they cant power down fully and go into sleep or hibernate adn i have seen it happen to people who do not allow the battery to completely drain occasionally, had a family members did this recently. Just to rule it out turn it on and shen you hear fans and see lights even with no desktop, press and hold on the power button 3-5 sec until it shuts itself down, then do a normal start when you can see no lights or hear any sounds. Good luck.

My laptop shuts off after i turn it on.why


Does your laptop even begin the boot process where it displays stuff on the screen? Do you hear fans running, disk drives running, see lights, hear the cd drive click once and notice a light that comes on the cd drive door briefly when you press the power button? If not you computer either has a bad power cord, a bad dc power jack where the power cord plugs in, a bad mother board or static build up. 1) lets eliminate static buildup by removing the power cord and the battery then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then replace the power cord but not the battery and hit the power button. If it boots up you had static build up. 2) Take an ink pen and put in in the slot where the power cord plugs into the laptop, if it wiggles loosely then your dc power jack which is soldered onto the motherboard needs to be replaced. 3) If the power jack is tight and when you plug in the power cord if you don't see any lights or hear a fan, disc, cd drive, then you can almost bet your power cord is bad. 4) If the power cord is ok then you have a mother board issue. Normally motherboards will give some beeps or constantly blinking lights when you plug in the power cord and try to boot up. These beeps or blinking lights will tell the technician what is wrong with your computer.

Starts up then shuts down within 3-5 seconds


is this happening everytime you start the machine? What is being displayed on the screen? Do you hear the fans running when you press the power button? Do you hear the disc drive running? Do you hear the cd drive click once and the light on the cd drive door come on for a second or two? Is it posting anything on the screen during the boot process? Is it getting to the actual windows desktop which is where you see your icons? Computers shut down for a reason. Either some piece of hardware is not working such as a fan, or some hardware is faulty (such as the memory, cpu or motherboard), or some software issue or a virus has taken over.

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

Instantaneous shutdown of my Toshiba Satallite A105 Laptop


Hi Sam,

What operating system are you using ?

If you remember what time it last randomly shut down on you, use the system event viewer to see what errors were given just before it turned itself off. You can access the event viewer in Windows XP by clicking on the Start button, then click on Run, and in the box that pops up type in "eventvwr" and hit enter.

Click on system on the left hand side to view the log files of the system. Browse down until you find the time when your laptop turned off. Hopefully there is a series of errors there. They should be able to tell you something about why it is doing it.

Hope this helps, feel free to post some of the errors back here if you find any!

Sounds like your power supply may have died. Check all the power connections to your pc (if it is connected to a power-bar, make sure the power bar has not gone bad). If everything looks good there, you probably need to by a new PSU (Power Supply Unit)
