Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

Dell 1525 completely shuts itself down eg. when playing Sims 2

\015 We've had this laptop for just over a year now, and it has just started shutting down, mainly when my daughter is playing Sims 2, or is on MSN. It just shuts itself off with no warning. Also, the power cablle appears damaged (where it tends to bend when plugged in) - not sure whether this has anything to do with it??\015
