Problem running F11 i586 on my Laptop

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi there, Offlate I installed F11 i586 on my laptop. F11 shares the hard disk with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The problem is that when running F11 (or even Ubuntu), my system shut off suddenly(not a normal OS shut down, but a sudden power off without any warning). This could have been a hardware trouble(heating) but it doesn't happen with Vista. Machine specifications: Maker: Toshiba Model: Satellite L305D-S5881 AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor RM-70 3072 MB 800 MHz SDRAM I don't want to open up my machine unnecessarily, if it isn't a hardware issue. I am not sure how to verify the bit length of the machine and the OS and does it create a compatibility issue ? Your advise would be highly appreciated. Raman (HowTos)
