Question about Toshiba Satellite 1805-S274 Notebook
I turn on my laptop and I go on internet explorer like usual. Then I am on for about 20 minutes and then it just shuts off and I have to turn it on again.
I checked the heater and it is fine. Please, this laptop the is the only one I have. Please give me a website or a solution to this problem. I really am getting tired of turning it back on right after it shuts off.
I had this problem for a LOONNGG time. I couldnt figure out what the heck was going on or why it was overheating. I almost resorted to buying a new computer, but thankfully I didnt. About 1am this morning it did it to me again. So i decided to clean the bottom and make sure it was clean. I cleaned it, and just out of curiousity, took apart the exhaust fan housing, and O. M. G. was there a TON of dust and junk in there. It took me about 45 minutes to clean it out thuroughly because I am not very computer savy when it comes to taking them apart and putting them back together correctly. But I would be my paycheck that if you took of your exaust fan housing, and then the individual covers for the fan and inspected the fans, and the exhaust ports themselves, you will find your problem. Since i cleaned it, it hasnt turned off once and the fans hardly run at all! I hope this helps guys!

Hey Guy's I think that we should all get in touch with Toshiba and lobby them, as my Tosh Satalite also turns itself off mid way though some important document it's rdiculous we have paid a lot of mony for these lap tops and we should get something back lets take em on guys. What do you say Lady Freeman.

My laptop also shuts off while watching videos from the internet (within seconds of it starting) but I can put in a DVD and watch it for hours without a problem. Why would the internet videos overheat my laptop or cause any problems and watching a DVD wouldn't?

I had this same problem and I hope people search for this 2012 answers from yahoo or something. I went to Toshiba Service Station and updated my Bios in order. One of them was a power issue of overheating. After this I had no problems.
Click Windows ICON search service station and open it up.Click check for updatesClick on each update and download from BOTTOM to Top. Everything works perfect now.

My Toshiba Satellite's turning off problems finally ended when I replaced the hard drive. I had even tried a cool-pad, a unit with fans that draws air away from the bottom of the laptop which helped initially, but then I discovered that it would still turn off even with the fans running. I find that I don't need to use it anymore, the laptop just doesn't get hot anymore.
Now if I could just get the screen to stop flickering and randomly turning off!

It seems like some of arent computer savvy. Toshiba laptops are one of the best in the world (The best would be apple) and this problem only happens to a few people and user btsando is right the cooling fans have dust in them or the heat sync is clogged just clean it out and it will work fine. My Toshiba did this once and its older than the hp laptop i have before and the dell and still works fine

While you are accessing the Internet, a large number of temporary files get created. These temporary files consume large amount of memory space in your Toshiba Satellite laptop. This automatically reduces the speed of your Toshiba Satellite laptop. By using system utility, temporary folders can be removed to fix the shut down issues.
