I suspect if the laptop is overheating to the point where its shutting down, that its the cpu thats overheating rather than the hard drive.
Do you have any way of monitoring the cpu temps & the cpu fan speed?
Have you also checked the vents for dust?

Which model of Toshiba laptop do you have?

from the website:
Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 532 supporting Hyper-Threading Technology (3.06 GHz, 533MHz FSB, L1 Cache 12KB/8KB, L2 Cache 1MB)
As I was searching the website I came across this.
its an american bulletin and I'm in canada. Should I take it in and see what they say or give them a call and see what the deal is? Thanks for any help,

Let us know you get on. If Toshiba say that your particular problems are caused by something else, then we can take it from there.

problems started with while construction started in my home, massive dust collected and shut my toshiba very suddenly.
cleaning the vents solved it for me and keeping laptop elevated works too. I find just by placing my laptop on my bed smothering the comforter, the computer shuts down.
my advice is just keep it clean, it solved my problem
