hi all,

my boyfriend has a toshiba laptop thats about 2 years old. just right now it shut off by itself and gave no warning at all. he was surfing the web and it just suddenly died. usually if the battery is low there would be a really annoying loud beep noise to indicate it but there were no beeps and or any kind of warnings at all. now the computer won't even turn on, there are no lights on the laptop whatsoever...just...dead.

does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? overheating? i know nothing about this kind of stuff so any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks! :thumbsup:

You may have burnt some of your motherboard if it was an overheating issue. Do what Starcraft suggested and if it works, then your battery is just defunct. If it doesn't work, you may want to take it to a computer shop if you a bit inexperienced about computer parts, and let them do a diagnostic.

We may also have a virus issue that may just automatically shut the computer off, but I think it has a higher chance of overheat damage.

Anything can happen when technology is involved. Recently, computers have skyrocketed in advancement, but so have spyware and malware rates. Either his "PSU" is completely fried, his Mobo is completely fried, or he has a boot up virus. Either or.

there are only two possibilities: one is that, the battery is broken.the other is that there is some thing wrong with your laptop.
use a good battery to have a try.if the laptop could work normally wothout dying, the reality is there is something wrong with your laptop.Be patient.
