Answers :

Hi folks

I had this problem with my Inspiron 1501 and tried all sorts including reformatting hard drive etc. etc. then I came across a post on a forum suggesting that when the battery goes it can cause this sort of problem. So I booted with the battery removed and YES!!!!! a fully working, fast, non-crashing Inspiron. Also cured a problem with slow recognition of USB! I have just ordered a new battery and hopefully my problems are gone. Try it!

Hi,
Laptop restarts:
Usually the most common cases your laptop case is generating enough heat that it restarts the system in order cool down, and so you shold check several things. First check to see what can of dust is in your case and then blow it out with an air can. Next remove the fan over your processor and see if their is any thermal paste on your processor and if there isn't any on the processor or the fan over the processor, and so go to your local computer shop or purchase some at newegg and apply a small amount and see if that would help. Before you do that what I suggest you do a system check through your computer by rebooting you computer and in the boot menu select the diagnostic option and do a full scan and see if any memory errors show up. Then do a check disk and system file check through command prompt by typing Chkdsk and for the system file checker read up on the information from this link on what do http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310747.
Now you done all that and still have this problem back up any stuff you have and do a reinstallation of your computer.

Battery:
Sometimes if the laptop is running and the battery is low, it will not charge. Leave the laptop off for 2-3 hours and let it charge while off. Then power it up while plugged in. If it is still low and not charging I am afraid you may need a new battery. They can sometimes die within 2 to 3 years.

Conclusion: As best of my knowledge battery of your laptop die, so it will produce overheat and cause laptop restarts.
Advise: Changing the battery will solve the problem.
Good luck..
