Default Laptop only starts for a bit?

Hi. One day I shutdown my laptop and came back to turn it on. There is always two lights that are on (these were on now) however usualy when I turn it on two more turn on however now only three lights were on when I turned the power on. Anyways the fan didnt turn on for a while so I try to turn the power on and after a while it finally turned on, however after it got to the windows screen it just shut off..! I dont know the exact model of my computer all I know is that it is a black toshiba. Anyways is there something wrong with my hardware, is there a program doing this? Help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like it might not have been turned off and was running on the battery. Is the notebook plugged in to the AC outlet,,, that might be the other light not on. I would recommend looking on the bottom of your notebook or where ever and find the model number. Go to Toshiba's web site and DL a users manual. Reference the lights that are on or were on / or now off. Then post back.
