Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook ?

My dell inspiron 1545 shuts down by itself, dell says i need to reinstall operating system. first noticed it if I was using it while being charged but now it does it anytime

Answers :

I have the exact same problem. However I don't think the problem is\015\012the oper. system. The computer shuts down at random; many times it\015\012won't even boot. I originally thought maybe their was a loose ram\015\012stick, so i tried replacing it and had no luck. Then I tried removing\015\012the hdd and tried to get into the BIOS, but it still sometimes would\015\012shut off; meaning that the o/s can't be the problem.

It still works sometimes, but other times just shuts off or\015\012won't make it past the initial boot screen. I'm thinking it has to be\015\012a problem with something in the power supply. It's seems like the\015\012power just completely cuts off, i've never seen anything like it.
If you do not have lots of data you may need to reinstall but if you do try to format the hard drive first fully not only quick format...you need to clean everything on the hard drive and that is most peopl over look just to short the time.
\015\012If you are going to do it then do it good so you do not need to come back to same issue in the futur...good luck

I own a Dell Latitude XP2 Tablet Notebook. It has been working fine for over a year until recently. Now it's been freezing on me after a little bit of use. Sometimes I can use my computer for about 15 minutes, sometimes over an hour. I don't know what I should do. I'm not sure if my fan is not working right or what. I notice that there is a light next to the battery charge light that turns off, and that's when I notice the computer freezing. What is that light?
