Windows 7: laptop shutting off without warning

laptop shutting off without warning

for some reason or another my laptop acts like it crashed and the power stays on and then I have to force the power to go off and when I turn it back on it comes back on and then it says that I got the blue screen on the error and when I try to check for a solution it doesn't show me any solution whatsoever, this has happened to me 3 times since Saturday, any solution that I can use to stop this from happening because my computer is no longer under warranty and I can't afford to replace the hard drive and I just had the hard drive replaced back in April because it crashed and I most certainly can't afford a new computer

Sounds to me like it could be faulty power supply and or power management. If you can; can you upload the logs from the event viewer so we can have a look?

It may be getting to warm causing the shut down. Do you monitor temps at all? Lap tops are known to get dust buildup on the fan and causing a overheat shutdown problem.

I use Core Temp.
Simplest free app I could find for my Toshiba laptop. Option to keep the display visible or hidden.
You can set an alarm to display/sound when a critical temp (a custom setting) is reached. (optional)
Icon is always in the systray. Some other battery apps install their own toolbar.
Systray displays an icon for each CPU core.
