Laptop shuts down when moved around. I have a Toshiba A135-S4467 and yesterday when I went to pick it up and set it on my lap it shut down leaving the power button flashing orange. when I pressed the button it turns blue again and the computer goes to the password screen. Once I put my password in it goes back to the windows where I was before it shut down. It does this everytime I move it.

Answers :

Since it happens when you are moving the computer on AC power, I would suspect the power connector on the laptop itself is the culprit. When you move the laptop, it jostles the connector a little bit and it loses it's electrical connection but it isn't loose enough to drop the manual switch that lets the laptop know that the AC adapter is actually plugged in.

\015\012If you know someone experienced with electronic equipment, it is not normally a major hassle to replace the connector on the motherboard, otherwise I would recommend taking it to a qualified service technician to get ir replaced.
Sounds like a Battery - AC Adapter problem. Do you have an Icon showing your battery level?

\015\012Do you have Windows XP? I'm guessing you do because of the memory upgrade.

\015\012If you have XP, go to Control Panel - Power Options and check you battery. Choose to show in task bar.

\015\012If you have a AC Adapter, the BIOS on your laptop will NOT charge the battery, but it will show that you are on AC (unless it's completely dead)

\015\012I'm guessing that if you only had 1g of memory, you have a pretty old laptop, and you probably should purchase a new AC Adapter, and a new Battery.
