Toshiba QosmioX770 3D Windows 7, 18 months old. I have had

This answer was rated:

Toshiba QosmioX770 3D Windows 7, 18 months old. I have had 3 new batteries since purchased due to failure to hold charge. 3rd battery working/charging fine and no problems with laptop. everything switched off and unplugged from mains for 2 week holiday, but on first starting last week on Mains power, the start cycle was suddenly terminated for no reason. On re-start, Initial sequence gets to various stages prior to password XXXXX and terminates. Sometimes, restart goes to page asking for safe mode or start normally, sometimes to repair page/system restore - tried both but fault still occurs. Fault occurs with or without Mains power. Sometimes, full start is made but laptop switches off at any time, for no apparent reason, without touching or pressing any keys/commands. Health monitor, when laptop is in full working mode, shows everything ok, battery condition good, fan/temperature average readings.All other checks thatI can find to carry out show everything successful. Only thing Ican think of is that there is a temperature cut-out/thermal relay which may be being activated, although temperature/fan is showing ok as stated. Help, please.
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient with us as these are technical questions and some testing may be required.
It may take a bit of back and forth conversation to be sure we have all the information in order to make a proper diagnosis.
This is a defective charger, its not putting enough current into the batteries, so you get the problem you are having. You unfortunately will just need a new charger to fix this, and likely all the batteries you have are in good shape;-)
Please let me know if you need a source for the new charger?
I will stick with you until this is fixed but since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you and have a great evening ;-)
