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

Why excess heat generated in laptops?

The only reason which causes laptops to generate excess heat is because of the usual ineffective cooling system present inside. In order to endorse and sell their laptops, manufacturers don't usually focus more on its stability but on its looks, specifications and other influences that people usually consider while buying a laptop.

Can we use heat radiating out of laptops to charge battery

Who knows what science may come up with in the future. For now heat generated by laptops is wasted energy. The trick is to find a laptop with an efficient processor that produces less heat in the first place. Less wasted energy means more battery life.

Laptop lock up

More than likely it is a heat issue. Does the problem occurred when the laptop is on a hard surface? If the problem disappears when on a hard surface (desktop), then it is a heat/ventilation issue. You might invest $20 - 30$ for a laptop cooler.

Laptop stops wafter some working heating

I THINK you mean, Laptop stops working after heating up... If that is so, that means your Cooling system is not functioning, and the computer has turned itself off to protect your MOTHERBOARD, CPU, RAM and HDD from heat damage. Which means, you can likely get your cooling fan replaced in a shop for about 100 bucks (outside of warranty) and have your pc back the way it was when you got it new.
