Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

Computer shutting off

My Toshiba Satellite shuts down on its own at random. I can be in the middle of anything and it will just turn off. Sometimes if I hit the power button to come back on, it will start up but shut off immediately. What is causing this? I got an email a while back concerning static electricity buildup in my model. If that is the case, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening so often? Also it gets extremely hot, I have tried laptop fans, elevators, etc. Nothing has seemed to help.

Toshiba Satelite shuts down randomly


Try reinstalling your windows, or the program you use.
Or, look if its overheating, buy a cooling pad, it's not really expensive and it helps alot.

Computer shuts off randomly after I've been using it for as little as an hour sometimes longer. I thought it was over heating so I bought a desk fan but that hasn't helped. Any idea what could be wrong...


Hi cherrrylnorr,

Your CPU fan may not be working. The computer automatically shuts down after reaching the specified temperature. Cooling it with a desk fan will do no good. I suggest you take your laptop to the nearest Toshiba Service Centre and get it fixed.

Hope this information was useful.

Thank you for using fixya.

Scan the Computer using any latest updated anti virus program for any potential threat.

If the computer is not infected by any virus or trojan then you may also try performing System restore to the time when the Computer worked normally.

If the Computer keeps shutting down randomly after turning ON then the Power Supply Unit in the Notebook requires service.

Toshiba Satellite Goes completley off! Black screen, NO POWER!


This problem is likely caused by overheating. The CPU reaches a temp to high and shuts the system down. When you try to turn it on the system is still to hot and it will not let the computer power on. You can try blowing out the fans and heat sink with an air compressor or can of compressed air. If this does not help the problem you may need to have thermal compound reapplied. If that does not fix it it will need a new heatsink/fan/

Hi Steven, in my experience as a tech support agent, it seems that you're having an issue with your hard drive, sometimes it might also be an overheating issue, to be clear on that, please be sure to check the temperature of the computer when it shuts down, then the first symptom of the issue seems to be the clicking sound which ussually comes from the hard drive's reading head, this might indicate the hard drive is damaged and that it cannot perform as usual. The steps to troubleshoot the issue will be as follows; First please enter the BIOS/ System Setup of the system, by pressing the [Delete] as soon as the computer turns on several times, you will appear in a black or blue enviroment with some information from your computer. Check if the issue will happen there as well. Second, if the computer gets really hot at the point when it shuts down, please ensure that all the fans in the computer are running (you should be able to hear them), And be sure of the temperature when it shuts down, we must know if the computer is too hot to touch, or there is no problem with it. Third step, how long will the computer stay on? Will it always shut down at the same time?
The best solution for this issue would be to replace the hard drive, or defective fans depending on the troubleshooting results, if you're still within your 1 year warranty with Toshiba, you should contact their tech support team to replace the part.

As an aditional step to the troubleshooting you should also try to remove the hard drive, and let the computer on for as long as its necessary, to discard the hard drive from the issue, if it doesn't shut down then the hard drive seems to be the problem.

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!
