Laptop keep turning off itself

So, I have a toshiba satellite M200 laptop. Core 2 duo T7250, and has 3G of DDR2 Ram. I was fine while using windows vista. but since I upgrade it to windows 7 ultimate 64bit, my laptop start turning off itself, especially when I do alot of work at the same time, so can anyone tell me what's the problem? Is it because my system requirement is not enough? or I need to install any software to make them compaitble together?

Go to search, and type event viewer and locate the reason. Look for errors
You can also use the performance monitor.

Welcome to SF, howls123. Please fill out your System Specs. M200 ST 2001 or 2002?

Out of curiosity, were you running Vista 32- or 64-bit?

Make sure all your drivers are up to date:

Can you monitor your temperature? Could be shutting down if it's too hot.

Are you running any firewalls, AVs, etc? Please list. In fact, run msconfig and get a screen capture of your startup.

You look for errors in event viewer. Post some and maybe you can be helped by others.

1)The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

2)Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are related to trusted applications.

3)The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device USB\VID_0483&PID_2016\5&3a20cda4&0&1.

4)WLAN AutoConfig service has successfully stopped.

5)Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.

- click on Start, and enter MSCONFIG, hit enter. Look for Startup tab.

- by the way, is your notebook plugged in when this happens?

How do you know it's not overheating? My Toshiba laptop would shut down when it overheated. I had to disassemble it to clean the cooling fins (they were almost completely blocked and it was not discernibly obvious by looking at the exterior) - problem immediately solved. The caked up gunk, I'm sure, built up over time in the humid environs in which I live. I transported my laptop at least 3 times a week to client's offices and it was regularly exposed to 80 percent humidity and 100 degree temps outside transitioning to 50 percent humidity and 75 degree temps inside.

I was not aware of the overheating issue until it happened because I had not been monitoring my CPU temps. Use CoreTemp to determine your TjMax and how closely you are approaching it.

Below you can see my current CoreTemp view as I type this post. The 79 you see is the temperature away (in degrees Fahrenheit) from TjMax of each core and the 1.2 you see is the current clock speed:

When my laptop was overheating and shutting down, that 79 degree value would often plunge to 20 or even 17 before bailing out.

Your system should be able to run Win 7 Ultimate x64 with no issues. Drivers should not be an issue with your system either.

Oh yeah, my Toshiba laptop also would only shut down when I was doing a lot of work. The biggest impact on CPU temp came when watching videos. Otherwise, it ran fine!
