    I have the same problem.

    I even purchased a notebook cooling pad with a lot of fans.



    I believe the problem is the fan for the video card.

    I can hear the fan kick on once in a while but it shuts off within 2 or 3 seconds.



    If anyone has a solution please let us know. Thank you

I recently had the same problem. I had just updated the drivers for the Nvidia card and after that the fan stopped working. It would cause the computer to overheat and the screen to shut off. I reverted my computer to just before I updated the drivers and the problem went away. If you recently updated your driver you might have the same problem. I play several graphic intensive games and dont have any issues as long as the fan is working on the video card. It will get pretty warm even with the fan working.

I had the same problem. I sent it back in to Toshiba and they fixed it.

The problem was the fan on my motherboard. I think it had some bad bearings because it would run sometiems and not others; and when you would hear it run; it would do a lot of clicking.

It was overheating the core, and while I was playing games it would just stop processes.

Just call up Toshiba and tell them; they should let you send it into the UPS store for free. It will take about a week or two.

Your laptop is getting too hot therefore you need to place in on a wooden surface like a table instead of your lap to prevent it from getting overheated.

Toshiba a30 laptop over heating problems


It is obvious that your computer shutdown because it is overheating. try to get a chill mat to place it under computer. you said that it does not shut down when is on battery??? do you play games when is on battery?....computers normally overheat during large processing tasks such us playing video games. Try to fans clear do not place your laptop ontop of your bed or anything that will obstruct the fan under computer.

See if that works

best luck

Hey,

wow at the scars thats bad. I would suggest you use a cooling device under the laptop. And blow the dust out from the fans with canned air.

Toshiba Satellite L15-S104 Gets VERY HOT


Make sure that there is good air flow all around the laptop, including the bottom. By resting it in your lap, you may be constricting the air flow. This is one of the reasons why laptops are now called notebooks! They really don't work well on your lap. When I use my notebook, I make sure that the fans have a clear path so that I don't have this problem. Try that and see if it works. You could also use a notebook cooler. They run about 20.00, depending on the type and size.

Computer shuts down on its own


Usually what gives these types of sighns is that the laptop is overheating.
It hasn't cooled down yet and that's why it will continue to reboot a couple of times it's a safety catch so you don't fry anything within the laptop.
A couple things you can do put it down on a hard surface when in use do not cover the bottom vents that let's the computer breath and cool down.
Also they sell in many stores you will see laptop coolers.
They are flat and light which you put your laptop on there's fans on the bottom that blow up at the bottom of the laptop to keep it cool
I use one it let's the laptops life last longer plus it don't burn the legs or heat up the legs while on the laptop.
Happy Holidays

Overheating


Its pretty easy to tell when your laptop is overheating. Youll have those tell-tale red marks on your legs from where the hot bottom of the laptop has been resting against your legs.

Fortunately, most laptops will automatically shut down if they are over heating to prevent any further damage to hardware like hard drives and motherboards.

If you would like to know the running temperature of your laptop, download this little utility.

Hope this helps,

My toshiba wont start it keep's restarting at the black loading screen.


have you done a maintainance on it to get rid of all the excess information?? if not..go to start--then all programs, then accessories, then tools, click on disk cleanup. click on yes to all when the pop up box show up.

after this do a defragmentation-- go to start, all programs, then accessories, then tools, then disk defragmenter. click on analisys-- this will tell you if you need to defrag your system. if yes-- do it..it will take time to defrag, but it will speed up you game play ability.

Hello,

Your Problem is of overheating the unit.

Pls check the Air exhaust of the Laptop. The fan may be blocking air and may be causing the processor hot. It's better to
