Hi everyone,
I have Toshiba satellite laptop with 2GB DDRII Ram, procesor 2Ghz.
My laptop is getting restart itself and i can't figure out why?

Things i have done:
Installed fresh windows 7
Ran bootrec /fixmbr /rebuildbcd / fixboot
TRIED TO RUN WINDOWS MEMORY DIAGNOSTIC but my laptop restarts in between 50%, doesn't let it finish everytime i run it :confused:

No, sorry forgot to mention...this laptop is 2 years old. i haven't bought any new memory and its a single chip of 2GB.

Can an adapter be an issue? i feel its an Adapter issue :S

No. You got new ram, new ram does not work. Does it work with old ram? If it does, it is the new ram.

Possibly overheating. Have you ever blown out the vents with compressed/canned air?
Boot to the Bios, check the Temps, let it idle for several minutes and see if the CPU Temp rises.

Re: My laptop is restarting itself

Okay so i think i know its my Adapter. when i start my laptop when plugged out, it do not restart. And when i start it with plugged in, it restarts. But unfortunately my battery life is up to 5 mins only so gotta replace both of them.

Glad you got it sorted out and good luck.
What makes you think the battery is defective?
I would get a manufacturer replacement AC adapter and see if it will charge the battery before replacing the battery.

No i dint mean that battery is defective. i figured out that adapter is defective.
Adapter plugged in = restarts at start-ur
Adapter plugged out = do not restart.
as i cant use laptop for more than 5 mins so i have to plug adapter back in then it restarts after few minutes and sometimes it do not restart for longer period. i think there is a fluctuation of volts within adapter.
Right?
