Question about Toshiba Equium 7300S PC Desktop
Initially, pls remove the battery and the the power from the mains for an hour or so. The idea is to dissipate any residual power inside the laptop. Thereafter, pls try the laptop from the mains without the battery. The ides is to determine if the laptop will work and if yes, then there is a probable charging/power issue. Again if it will work from the mains, try it now with the battery. If no further issue, then it was just a glitch, if problem repeats itself, then chances are the battery is so depleted that it is getting most of the output of the AC power adapter under powering the laptop. Another possible action is to try and recharge the battery with the laptop off for say overnight.
Other than the above, all other diagnostic/repair would involve opening the unit for a look & see. This of course would require a bit of familiarity with electronics and components, use of a DVM and even perhaps a soldering iron. Based on this you might be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional.
Of course other things that could be tried are:
1. cleaning the ventilation holes with the use of a can of compressed air;
2. removing/re-seating the memory as well as cleaning the little gold tips with the use of a pencil eraser;
3. visual inspection of any component underneath (LANcard, WiFi card, memory sticks, others and/or anything out of the ordinary).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

This could be a hard drive crash, however, I just repaired a machine that had a similar issue. A loose connection an the board was prompting the machine to blue screen, and then shutdown all together. I had to tear the machine completely down to find it.

one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
hope this helps
