Toshiba Satellite Automatic shutdown on startup

I have a Toshiba Satellite P205D S7438 that out of the blue, shut down. Now on start up, I get the toshiba logo as usual before vista signin, but stays on that boot screen for a good five minutes before it powers down on it's own. I've tried hitting F2 or F12 for startup options on the boot screen, but it's the same result other than a 'please wait' instruction before shut down again. Is my motherboard fried? Please help!

Try F8 upon start-up and use safe mode to boot then try a doing a system restore, it may have installed an update automatically that conflicts somehow

Satellite P205d-s7438 motherboard,

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Laptop,Part,K000056150.aspx

Same part number used for both laptop models.

Satellite P205d-s7436 specifications,

Satellite P205d-s7438 specifications,

http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-p205d-s7438/4505-3121_7-32658635.html

Just by comparison of the specs the data suggests only a Processor change, Ram Memory amount, and Harddrive size.

Uses a Socket S1 processor socket on both model's motherboards,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_mobile_microprocessors#.22Tyler.22_.2865_nm.29

Both models use an AMD 690V graphics chipset, (ATI Mobility Radeon X1200)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_690_chipset_series

The answer is Yes.

My toshiba p205d s7438 cpu is 101 it is overheated but i got a fan


Did you get a laptop cooling pad or fan I would go with the pad chances are that if laptop is getting hot and the fan works you have more problems than the fan but I would try the cooling pad first but would be making sure I have some sort of backup that I was sure worked.

Unable to locate audio and voice inputs on toshiba satellite


they should be in the front of the laptop (not where the plugs are, opposite side) if windows won't show them up then its a different story, your missing drivers.
