    My previous Toshiba laptop after a year or so had been shutting off. I purchased another one, (Toshiba Satellite) and it worked well for about 2 years. Then it started shutting off again. I installed a new hardrive in it, and it worked without any problem for about 6 months and then kept turning off again. I placed a small 115 V, PC cooling fan behind the sreen. It worked, except when there was a heavy load - lots of colors and actions which made this piece of garb... shutting off. Never ever Toshiba again. You can't rely on their product, especially when you intraday trade stocks. Now I have switched to Compaq Notbooks with an additional 19" monitor for each of them. They are so smooth and quiet, contrary to that loud piece of turbine. Mark R.

First off im affraid you cannot totally rely on ANY software with regards to Thermo sensing
they are only an indication and can be anywhere from 5 to 25 degreeC out, dont get me wrong
generally you can get a good indication but thats the best they can be. Listen for fans kicking in then staying on, keyboard getting warm to hot.
If the machine is just cutting out that would suggest power supply either charger fault etc (is the battery fully charged when it happens) or overheating, if its shutting down the first thing i would try is running in safe mode see how it performs, check for any spyware/virus, run
Hope helps for now let me know

Why does my laptop keep freezeing up and shutting down, I did a virus scan and its ok


The infected laptops encounter random shutdown problem until some maintenance activity is being performed on the system.
Two important things that you should do to fix a laptop which keeps shutting down are:
1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem.

1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

My laptop keeps shutting down at random times. I


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

Random Shutdown


Toshiba's are notorious dust collectors, try blowing back through the air vents and some clever use of the vacuum cleaner on the intakes can bring it back to life. also check the RAM for dust and dirt on the pins and clean as required. USE ANTI-STATIC Precautions!
