If it's going into thermal shutdown, this is an easy fix if you're comfortable with taking your laptop apart. What has happened is the thermal grease in between the cpu and the heatsink has dried out, and is not conducting the cpu's heat properly. The machine is shutting down to protect itself. My best advice is go to any computer store, and get a tube of thermal paste, and find the disassembly instructions online. Clean both surfaces (the heatsink and cpu) with rubbing alcohol. Re-apply a thin layer of new thermal grease, and reassemble. Be sure to clean the crud out of the heatsink while you have it out.

Its difficult to identify the problem but there two things that might cause this...first, virus, your laptop may have been infected with a virus e.g. brontok....try restarting your laptop and boot on safemode. if it works there then a virus is causing the issue. you just need a scan and delete it with an anti-virus. second. you are having a problem with you fan/processor. this would be the time to go to the nearest PC repair shop.

Champion 3500 watt generator shuts down after 1 min. Not low on oil!


You have a carburetor problem. Stuck float or clogged filter. Gas cannot get into the carb as fast as it is used. Letting it sit for a few minutes will allow the bowl to fill.

I installed a new battery and its not lasting for the time remaing. what should my battery be set on normal full power high power saver power


Toshiba usually has a power configuration utility for this... when on battery, reduce your inactive time values to the minimum... suggested ...screen off in 1-2 minutes and harddrive should shut down in 2-5 minutes. system standby in 15 minutes, hibernate in 1 hour.
