Toshiba Satellite A300 Shuts down.

Specs: Windows Vista, 4GB ram
I have a Toshiba Satellite A300.
It unexpectedly shuts it self down, we first thought it was due to cooling, so we placed a fan directly on it and a laptop cooling pad underneath it. still shuts down.
We have tried different memory, new memory, lower frequency memory. still no luck
we have tried new hard-drive. taking the battery out and trying direct through ac power, still no luck.

We got through once with the fan directly on the laptop. and we installed a fresh copy of vista and once the installation was complete the os became corrupt. i did a repair of the windows and still was corrupt, i did another install and i am unable to get past the installation phase as it just resets.

any ideas what the problem is???
