Hi from what you are saying it sounds as if the processor is over heating due to bad thermal heat transfer, in short the heat sink compound needs replacing, this is a job for a laptop engineer
If you keep running it and it keeps shutting down due to over heating you will damage you processor.
hope this helps.

1. It is because the cpU fan within your laptop is not exhausting the heat properly for some reason.
2. Open up the laptop case and check if the fan is working properly or not. If not working, replace it immediately with a new one or it may burn out your processor itself.

3. Clean the dust accumulated on to the casing and heat sink which is under cpu fan as this may block air circulation.
4. If everything is done, your laptop should work fine. If you are not comfortable with doing youself, then seek help from any of the computer service center.

I hope this is useful to you

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked. You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Equium M40X gets overheated

this is a laptop computer?

THis is probably a simple heating problem. if it is, you'll have to replace or otherwise repair the heatsink, and maybe the CPU as well.

In general, if this is still under warranty, your best bet is probably to just return it to toshiba for repair/replacement.

I would NOT reccomend opening the case on an in-warranty laptop.

However, in case this ISN'T a heating problem, or if you need a temporary workaround... these ideas MIGHT work. they won't be permanent solutions, though.

1. try setting your bios, and your windows settings, to the options that use the least power.  less power = less heat.

2. If you deliberatly overclocked your cpu at some point, reset it to normal speed. or even less-then-normal speed.

3.  are you certain this isn't just a power problem, or a corrupt operating system?  you might want to try reinstalling the os, and running the computer from an AC outlet, maybe even with the battery removed

Fan Problem - Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349

Your fan is running to keep your system (mainly your processor) from overheating. Heat is the biggest enemy of laptops, and most aren't designed to put on your lap (as air intake ports are usually on the bottom and blocking them with your pants, comforter, blanket, etc... will not allow air to circulate causing heat sensing hardware/software to kick the fan into high speed) as that name would suggest. I believe that Notebook computer is the more proper term for most of them, though some are designed with no air intakes on the bottom side, unfortunately yours does. When you opened it up and "cleaned it" did you clean the heat sync and the other components or just the fan? If your PC is in a smoking environment it will have tar build up holding the dust and need a more thorough cleaning than just blowing it out with canned air from the outside (you may want to disassemble it and clean it with a non residual, non petroleum based contact cleaner. Otherwise there are plenty of temperature monitoring softwares out that will tell you what the processor and harddrive temperature are and most have free trials that you may want to try to see if heat is your problem. There is also software available to monitor and even increase/decrease your fan speed.
Good Luck.
