Hello all, I just recently downloaded this new Entertainment Hub program called XBMC for my Toshiba Laptop and it works great. It's a really cool program that lets me access all the media on my computer through a nice interface as if I was searching for movies on netflix or something, same with my music and pictures. Get more info about it here: http://xbmc.org/about/
Another cool feature is it lets me use my Android phone as the remote control! So right there and then, I fell in love.
UNTIL...... Just last night I was browsing through some of my movies while updating the library, nothing it shouldn't be able to handle, and then my computer flat out shuts down. And this shutdown was different, this is the first time my computer has shut down and the lights indicating that the computer is plugged in along with battery light went out. It was still plugged in so light should have remained on through the unexpected shut down, it always has in the past whenever I've had unexpected shutdowns.
But moving on, I tried unplugging and plugging the cord back in right away and light didn't come on (I didn't try turning on yet). I then realized that the laptop was pretty damn hot so I let it cool down for a minute (Also blew the dust out from the inside a little bit). So after a few minutes, I plugged it back in, the lights came on, I booted it up and everything was fine. My problem is that it keeps doing this to me! I am starting to worry that maybe it's overheating from the program or a hardware problem but I could be wrong, and I don't know what to do.
If this helps, I've only had this problem when I use my Android as a remote control using their free app.
All help will be greatly appreciated as always, thank you.
