Hey there,

 

I have a Toshiba Satellite A300-27x (Model No. PSAG8E - 08U04RCE).

 

The laptop started a couple of month ago to randomly restart when i am using it (was using windows vista), sometimes after 30 mins sometimes after 1 hour and sometimes after 5 mins.

So i tried the following:

 

1- reinstall windows (currently windows 7)

2- trying running the computer from a live linux USB (the laptop restarts before it finishes all the loading)

 

unfortunately no success.

 

Now the laptop restarts before even opening the windows.

 

Any ideas ?

Thanks

The link is only an example, maybe you can find a trustful repair shop near you.

 

It's an old model, it's up to you if it worth the investment on the repair.
