Dell 5150c shuts down orange flashing light

\015 My computer shuts off on it's own. No warning, the power light will blink orange and the only way to get it to work again is hold the power button for approximately 7 seconds, allow the computer to shut off, then turn it back on again. There is no telling when it will shut off again.\015

Answers :

It was a faulty or worn out power supply fan. I just replaced it and the computer has been running for about an hour and a half and still no shut down. The system temperature is stable. It runs quieter now. New fan cost 13.88CAD.
Its a case of bad power supply.If the system is still under warranty,please call Dell Technical support and get it replaced
