I have a Toshiba Satellite L40/L45 Series laptop which turns off by itself after a few seconds after turning it on. It doesn't even get past the Windows loading screen and my OS is Windows Vista 32-bit. I tried to see if it solved the problem to let it run just on battery, but no luck, same problem. Then I tried to see if it worked on AC power without the batter this time, but it made no difference... and this laptop is only 8-9 months old. Also, I don't think it could have been a virus nor is my setting in the power options set to turn off after a certain time because I disable all these features as soon as I get a laptop. So, if possible can anyone help me with this?
i boot on safe mod , then I notice that my laptop not turn off or restarting by self just when I boot normal windows it happen restarting by self , and the fun work good and the laptop not hot .. pls can u help and tnx
Not sure what model laptop it is but I fixed a friend of mines Toshiba and it was very simple. It was an overheating error to do with the heatsink being clogged up and very dusty inside. I dismantled it to reveal the inside components, gave it a thorough hoover and also used compressed gas to remove any dust and dirt that was blocking it up. Give it a go. Might save the hassle of posting it etc
Hi guys, I found the same problem. When I turn it on, the green n orange LED blinks and within few secs the lappy shuts down. I found the issue is because the RAM(usually its has 1GB+1GB) is fixed improperly. I removed and fixed the same properly and laptop is working fine now.
Yes, I did buy this laptop brand new from Best Buy.
And it was about 1 yr old before I started seeing this kinda problem occurring.
The model number is Toshiba Satellite L40/L45 Series. Not sure about the serial number or anything b/c I don't have the laptop with me ATM.
Already tried that and it still turns off after that. And when I first started to experience this problem occurring I noticed the more I tried to turn on the laptop after it shutdown it would only turn off more faster.
