Dell inspiron is turning off randomly - Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook


Answers :

Sounds like overheating, daughter had same problem. Don't blow air thro cooling element on the back of the laptop, you'll blow any accumulated dust/fluff back into the fan, which will just blow back into the cooling element when the fan switches on or it'll stop the fan from rotating altogether. First turn it over and take the battery out, then remove the big L shaped cover from the bottom. There's a thick copper conductor leading to the cooling element' GENTLY lift the cooling element clear of the laptop base, using a soft brush remove any dust/fluff from the element. Then using canned air blow from the bottom of the laptop thro the fan to clear any dust/fluff. Once cleaned GENTLY push the cooling element into position and replace L shaped cover, replace battery and away you go. Daughters has been OK for a few weeks now, amazing how much fluff collects in those fans.
