    My Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 has recently begun randomly shutting down while on the internet. The Blue lights for power and battery are both on when this happens. As I am often in the middle of work (I telecommute), this is very frustrating. I'll try the Bios download.

I'm not sure if upgrading bios help. If you had the same problem I had, this is how I fixed it. I read up on these toshibas that they turn off at random due to CPU not venting heat efficiently, and it's overheating quick. The system shuts it off at a certain temperature. I'm not sure how good you are with computers, but I had to tear it apart down to the motherboard.

It was my first time opening a laptop so I wasn't a pro at it but it's not too much different than a desktop. It's just with a desktop, everything is easier to get to and you can see everything on one side of the mother board. Laptops, it's just more compact at uses both sides of the motherboard. I bought this thing called Arctic Silver 5. It's a thermal compound that you paste on the CPU. It helps absorb and disperse the heat to the heat sink. With shipping, I paid no more than $7. Paid $200 for this laptop because whoever had it couldn't fix it. You can tell this is your problem if you lift your heatsink off the CPU, and notice that the thermal compound is disentegrating, or not evenly spread on the CPU. I'm sure that's what your problem is.

I fixed this same problem using a registry scanner. Here's a link to a good free one:

I've used this one and it sped up my computer by quite a bit. Hope this helps.

Wireless Internet causes blue screen of death


-- "limited conn.."-- you should configure the internet connection in the router's software ie 192.168.2.1 or any other IP for the router, use ISP help desk for this (if it's free).

Blue screens have numbers and sometimes explanations, usually they pop up because of incompatible driver, chek router software(driver) compatibility.

explanation of blue screens are in the following link:
