toshiba Satallite keep rebooting?

By sanwardak ·
I have problem with toshiba satallite, I cant reinstall windows xp sp3 from CD. When all the windows files copied then when it ask to format the disk when I press enter it power off. I have replace the power supply and cleaned inside there were not dust, I checked HDD for error no problems were found. But when I turn it on the hard drive light is off all the time, but when I try to format the disk I see the disk diplay there., but when I press enter to format it power off. I dont know if it is overheathing. but it is not that hot when it is on. I put dell laptop hhd which xp was installed on it, when I put that it reboot after POST test.

My first guess would be that the motherboard of the laptop has an issue with it's HDD controller, which the Toshiba diags would find.
