hi, yesterday i encountered twice laptop sudden shut down.

it just turned off by itself, no shutting down process, just PFFT!

what might be the problem here?

and for 2-3 minutes, i cant turn it on..

i'm using toshiba r-15
there are 3 LED indicators in my laptop, power cable, power, and the battery.


usually if it's working normal, in off mode, the power cable indicator is on (green), the power indicator is off (no lights).
ON mode, the power cable indicator is on (green), the power indicator is on (green)

but, since the problem occured it's just blinking orange color, and i cant turn the laptop on.

could it be a software problem?

when i can finally turn it on, and there is this command prompt kind of thing, that ask me to choose:
1.Windowsxp home profesional
2.windowsxp home professional (tuneup backup)

so i chose the 1st one.

help me!
do you guys need the HJT log?

I had the same problem with a Compaq Presario R3000. I do not know if it is the same issue with your computer but this is what happened:

The solder traces on the mother board from the power supply to the battery was very poor so it had a hard time tramitting power throughout the computer and when the electrical flow got too weak, Pfft! Gone. the battery was also fried on that laptop.

It never really got fixed. But I would guess that a new battery would be a temporary fix but it sounds like your going to have to pay some big bucks for that to work properly again.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

It could be a connectivity problem where the converter plugs into the laptop. Does it seem lose in the socket? If you wiggle it does it cause any problems?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
