Abrupt Shutdown Laptop
Posted on 2003-11-06
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop - Win Xp Home edition with DSL wireless/linksys router. I works fine, however, after about one hour on, it abruptly shuts off. When I hit the power button to turn it back on, it turns back on, but shuts off again in less than one hour.
First I thought it might be a memory leak of some sort with MS updates. I checked the error log, and have several DCOM errors "%1055" - [attempting to start the service netman] or [attempting to start the service cc PWDSVC] or [attempting to start the service Imapi Service] or [attempting to start the service event system]
I also checked the System properties. Bios Toshiba 1.70 dated 1/10/02. 256 MB Ram, Physical Mem 49.55, Total Virtual Memory 826.36 MB, Available Virtual Memory 464.21 MB and Page File Space 586.88 MB.
No other problems with computer. No periphials except Epson printer. Can anyone give a clue as to what to check and why this is happening? Thanks in advance!!!
