I bought a new Toshiba Satellite about three months back, and I've noticed that if it's tilted on its spine for more than a minute or so, the sound of what ever video I'm watching on it starts to get static, then it turns itself off completely. Is it normal for this kind of laptop to do that? Why does it do that?

Doesn't sound normal to me.

Weird. It's done this pretty much right off the bat, so I don't think it's a virus or anything; if a virus can even cause that to happen

Oh boy! Another Toshiba flop!

Just three months old! You are lucky, it's still under warranty...
