Equium M40X-149 gets overheated after 0,5H work and automatically switched off.
Thanks Krenn!I think I'll just get rid of it:)I've done every possible update and reinstalled OS and clean the fan!still this same.
I don't have warranty.
Thanks very much.

This is a laptop computer?
THis is probably a simple heating problem. if it is, you'll have to replace or otherwise repair the heatsink, and maybe the CPU as well.
In general, if this is still under warranty, your best bet is probably to just return it to toshiba for repair/replacement.
I would NOT reccomend opening the case on an in-warranty laptop.
However, in case this ISN'T a heating problem, or if you need a temporary workaround... these ideas MIGHT work. they won't be permanent solutions, though.
1. try setting your bios, and your windows settings, to the options that use the least power. less power = less heat.
2. If you deliberatly overclocked your cpu at some point, reset it to normal speed. or even less-then-normal speed.
3. are you certain this isn't just a power problem, or a corrupt operating system? you might want to try reinstalling the os, and running the computer from an AC outlet, maybe even with the battery removed
