I have a toshiba laptop that turns off on the bios splash screen. Its only a year old. I tried running on battery only, tried ac adapter only, but it does the same thing. Any idea whats causing this?

When you plug in the AC adapter does it acknowledge its there? Is the battery Charging?

There is an solid orange light for the battery indicator, so it appears to be charging while the unit is off.

This can be caused by a malfunctioning motherboard.
