Do you have the S.M.A.R.T drivers installed for your battery? (If your computer supports it) your system is most likely turning off due to low battery. go to Toshiba's website and browse through their drivers until you find your notebooks battery driver. Install it. Make Sure That It Is Your Model Of Notebook's Battery! If your system was originally running Windows, When it boots up, spam F2 or F8 until you see a menu "BIOS" check there and run a start up test, and then run a full system Diagnosis. Hope this helped you
