Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook
Something I've observed is that laptops often do this when they overheat. If a computer turns itself off, you should not turn it back on immediately. Check if it feels warm. Are your vents clean? When your computer is on, can you observe the fan functioning?

In this case the problem may be divided in to two
1. Hardware related
2. Software related.
If it is a hardware related issue, you must use a air pump to clear the air vents in the laptop. Sometimes dust accumulation may cause your laptop to overheat and turn off. If this does not work, then probably you must try to run a diagnostics in your system. If the OS in the laptop is provided by the manufacturer then the diagnostics can be found here START--->ALL PROGRAMS--->TOSHIBA--->UTILITIES--->PC Diagnostic
If the diagnostics returns an error then related action must be taken to resolve the issue.
If it is a software related issue then try reinstalling uninstalling the latest softwares you tried to install. It may have caused a conflict in the laptop. Try to clear some hard drive place and reduce the number of simultaneous processes the system is running. Sometimes the system cannot handle multiple processes which causes strain on the processor causing the laptop to overheat or seize functioning temporarily.
If not the last option would be to go for a complete PC restore to take back the laptop to its factory settings before which all the data in the system should be backed up.
Hope this works.
