laptop automatically shut down

Toshiba / Satellite l310

Specs: Windows Vista
My laptop has automatic shut down problem, since 6-7months ago. It doesn't shut down in the proper way, but it just blackout, like what happens when electricity being cut off suddenly. And then, when I switched on the laptop again, there would be few options for me to choose, it's either safe mode or starts window normally. Normally if i choose safe mode the problem doesn't occur, but it will occur whenever i don't use safe mode. I've changed the battery and format the laptop, and even sent it for repair by the factory, but these don't work. What's the problem actually?

Did the factory service techs find anything wrong with it?

If you've had factory service on it, and it still doesn't work, I would contact the people who fixed it and complain.

It seems that there are a fair amount of Toshiba laptops out there (w/ Google searches) with these types of power issues.

It could be a range of issues:

- Mobo issues, MOBO AC connector issue, RAM issue.
- Bad cooling FAN(s)
- Loose CPU heat sink
- Power AC adapter issue, bad cords, bad barrel connector.
- Charging system not charging battery
- System short circuits
- Power Management Software glitches

Just another stupid saying...
