Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7015 screen shuts off

August 25, 2016 at 17:08:25
Specs: Windows 10 64x, AMD Athlon II P320/8GB RAM
When I run any program that needs 2+ gigs of RAM, the computer's screen and sound stops. I have tried plugging in another monitor, and the same thing happens on the monitor. There is no time limit it seems, but if I leave the computer on for a while, and then try to boot up the program, it usually works. Does anyone know what is happening?

You might have bad memory. You can do an extended memory test from the BIOS.

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.

"If you leave the computer on for a while.." Do I understand that you only have this problem when you start the programs right after you start the PC?

How long is " a while"?? What program are you running?

During PC start-up a number of processes are started to check for updates, PC health, Telemetry etc. most will terminate after " a while" freeing memory and processor load.

Suggest you open Task Manager and see what happens when you start your program regarding processor load and memory allocation. If you memeory loads beyond 6-7GB page swapping will start (pagefile). If you have a classic HDD it will significantly slow down things.

So far my theory...

First of all, I have a Samsung SSD 750, and a while isn't really a fixed amount of time. Sometimes, I just have to download something, making it seem like I need to get the SSD going before I can turn on the program. Also, it's not what program I'm running. I've run many programs, all needing 2+ gigs of ram, and the same thing happens.

Now that I think about it, I think that there's something wrong with the video card. I don't know if I'm right about it, but that might be it. The things that I run, typically games, require a bit out of the video card.

Also, it could be the CPU, overheating because of overuse. I think that this is what sluc was getting at.

Have you narrowed down the cause of your issues? I want to lean towards your assumption of the video card. What are you using a laptop or desktop? Motherboard?

I'm currently using a laptop.

I have discovered that the only way that it actually works is when I download a decently large file. Something around 200+ MBs. After that, it works fine.
