    toshiba laptop

    Locked

    by jpowers72 ·

    I have a Toshiba satelitte laptop.
    It shutsdown after being on for one hour.
    You can be in the middle of working on something and it shutsdown.

    Any thoughts?

      You don’t say whether you’re using it on Ac or DC. If DC, you might need to recondition the battery by fully discharging it a couple of times. Had to do this a couple of times to my Compaq lptop. Apparently the batteries “learn” bad behavior if not fully discharged every once in a while. Toshiba’s support site will most likely have info on this.

        The laptop is running on AC.
        I will try the thing on the battery.

      If this is on Mains Power

      You should check to make sure that nothing is blocking the air intakes for the CPU Cooling. This an happen when a NB is sat on a soft surface and it sucks up the material that it’s sitting on. If you are on Mains Power I would suggest fitting a NB Cooler under the NB. This is a USB Powered device that the NB sits on and has a fan in it which allows a lot of cool air to circulate under the NB and helps to keep things cool.
