Problem running F11 i586 on my Laptop

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

Try so:

when select Fedora kernel, press "e", then select second line and press "e" again.
At the end line, one press space bar, type "noacpi", then "enter".
Press "b" and check if system booting.

Hi Sagitter, I did the same and the system boots.
Can you tell me what was it that we did and how does it help determine my system problem.

Could to be a problem with power management.
With "noacpi" option, not run acpi service at boot.

I recommend you to make a study deepened for limiting the problem.
