\015 Thoshiba a75-s229 shuts down\015
HI- I have one and it shuts down to. For us it was a problem with overheating and dust in the laptop. I beleive there are heat sensors inside the laptop that go, so that could be it. For the most part, when it shuts down, we have found it to be dust as after we clean it, it doesn't happen as much. For the dust- the first time blew air into the fan outlets (both of them) and a ton of dust came out. Sounds simple, but it worked. A tell tale sign may be if your laptop sounds louder than it normally does. We use the compressed air can every so often and even just put the vacum nozle over the fans (you'll hear them whirl and see dust coem out). I also have the lap top sitting on a "vent filter" like people use for thier heting/ac vents (WEB Electrostatic Vent Filters).They come in 4x12 sheets and are cheap. The fans **** up a ton of dust and this helps keep some of it out. Good luck...Steve
