    Sounds like may be overheating when trying to run an Operating system. They are designed to shut down when they start getting to hot to keep from destroying themselves and/or starting a fire.

    The Toshiba Satellite L500 series laptops appear to have originally come with Windows Vista 64-bit.

    What's the complete and exact model number(M/N) and serial number(S/N) on yours?

    Part number PSLS3A-01301D and serial number X9375314K come back "not found".
    Which country was that laptop purchased in?

    That model laptop uses DDR2 RAM, so it's obviously several years old.
    I'm guessing it has a hardware issue.

    Yeah It would be a few years old and I managed to get it to stay on for a while while I had it plugged into my hdmi port on my tv last night and it was purchased in Australia and yeah I couldn't find it on Toshibas support page

    Does it still have its original battery and hard drive?

    If it does, I'm guessing one or both of the following is the problem:
    1. Its battery can no longer hold a charge.
    2. Its hard drive is failing.

    Without being there to have a "eyes on/hands on" with that laptop, it's impossible for me to help you.
    I'll leave you with the others here who hopefully may be able to help you.
    Good luck.
