Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Computer keeps shuting down
As a PC Technician by day, and avid question answerer by night my best guess is a hardware issue. It could be anything from faulty memory, to a loose power plug in the back of your case. You will probably want to get the machine looked at, but my money is on a Power Supply/Memory issue.
If the screen goes blue before it goes black, it is definitely a memory issue which is a cheap fix. If not you will want a technician to run a diagnostic. Before you do anything else though, you should run a virus scan (included in link) and look behind your case to make sure all of your connections are tight.
If you want to test the memory yourself you can also run a MemTest. (second link)
If you are really feelin' frisky you can run chkdsk from windows. This will ensure that your installation of windows and harddrive are ok. Just press "Windows Key + R" to bring up a run box and type chkdsk. Pretty straight forward!
