Hello,

It could either be caused by overheating or a low battery. If it happens when the laptop is plugged in to power. You can try a laptop cooler. You can see an example of one at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834999336. You can use others as long as they match the size of your lcd.

If it only happens when running on battery, you may need a new battery. You can check http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp and enter the information on the bottom of the laptop on the silver Toshiba Sticker. Specifically the line between Toshiba and the model number. You can enter that at the above support page.

Thanks

Lap top gets too hot and shuts downundefined


Almost every laptop will accumulate a big wad of fuzzballs and lintballs that get packed in front of the internal cooling fins for the processor and chipset. This results in overheating and random shutdowns, as is your problem.
Ease of cleaning this out, without disassembly, depends on the design of the laptop's cooling fans and air ducts. I have kept an 8 yr old Toshiba laptop clean inside and running good by using a shop vac wo work 2 ways. I use the vac's exhaust to blow air INTO the slots where the air typically exit's from the laptop.... and use the suction end of the shop vac on the fan openings of the laptop.
You don't want to blow into the fan openings, as this only forces the debris and fuzzball deeper into the cooling fins.
You want to force air the *opposite* way of the laptop's normal airflow, to dislodge the fuzzball.
After vacuum & blowing, the lintball should end up visible by the fan intake openings. You may have to pop the fan screens out if the lintball is too large to come out any other way.

My computer is shutting down on its own. Is this


Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

Sounds like it is getting too hot. NEVER USE YOUR LAPTOP WITHOUT BEING PROPPED UP. Use a fan to blow on it while it is propped up.

Laptops breath from the bottom. If you leave it flat, it will get too hot. Also check the inside for dust or dog hair. Be very careful taking a laptop apart. Some mnfr sites have step by step directions. Do not take it apart if you are not sure that you can. You might be lucky that it is not damaged because a Pentium will shut down when it gets too hot most of the time.

Rate me if this helps.
