My computer is cutting off by itself like someone is pressing the power button. It's a Toshiba Satellite A205. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm trying to type this before it cuts off again. There's no bluescreen or warning, it's just cutting right off. I've had this happen before and it turned out to be my fan. It died so the computer cut off to avoid heat damage. But I can hear the fan working so I don't know what would cause this. It cut off twice. The first time I was just google searching and it cut off. Then when I cut it back on it it cut off again before Windows could load. I waited a few minutes to let the computer cool just in case, then turned it back on again and hit F8 to start in Safe Mode. I was rushing and I'm not sure if I pressed the right option because instead of going to Safe Mode it went to Start-Up Repair with a message saying computer was unable to start. Start-Up Repair finished and the computer restarted like normal. So far it hasn't cut off since but Start-Up Repair doesn't leave any notes about what happened so I don't know what the problem is/was.
