Toshiba satellite suddenly shuts down

March 9, 2013 at 19:15:47
Specs: Windows 7

How do I...I have a TOSHIBA satellite laptop and it turns off and reboots constantly once I power it on.

I could use it normally for about 3-4 minutes and even if i open the browser,a video file,or a song,the machine turns off immediately and starts to reboot.

Then the ''Windows error recovery''window shows up and I selected ''Start windows normally'' option and continued but after I applied my password and clicked enter,the machine again went off.

I repeated the process several times and even if windows load,I can't work even 5 mins. without that annoying turn off.
It even happens when I'm typing the password to start up.

Once ''Restart'' thing is going on,there appeared a screen saying the disk needs clean up..then i continued the check but the machine went off even before reaching 2%.

But everything WORKS FINE in the SAFE MODE..

I thought there may be an error in windows and tried to install UBUNTU..but the system AGAIN turns off during the installation...
Don't know what to do..and what is going on
Someone PLEASE HELP...

Overheating CPU is the first thing that comes to mind.
Have you tried to check system temperatures in BIOS? Have you used a can of air to clean out the vents and improve airflow?

uncheck automatically restart and then post the EXACT error number that comes up when it blue screens. That will help us figure out your problem.

If you get a blue screen (as per previous advice) see if there is any file name mentioned because that might help us too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I unchecked the automatic restart and tried but the screen turns off and the rebooting begins without showing any error message or blue-screen

if you have a windows 7 install disc...pop it in and boot up....then select 'repair my computer'
See if that gets you going....

I tried to repair the system using the windows disk then a messege you mentioned earlier showed up with a blue screen and it said due to an error windows didn't load up..
the error code was :*** stop 0x00000124 (0x00000000,0x81497024,0xB2000040,0x00000800)

that link might help you, it sounds like a hardware issue (one user I found had to change his CPU and that fixed it)...good luck
