Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Shuts down Purchased the rebuilt laptop for my granddaughter (13) for christmas. I have had a new hard drive installed and it ran fine for a while but all of a sudden it starts shutting down and rebooting itself while in use. Took it to my computer repair person who did a diagnostic for two days - one day not hooked up to internet and the second day hooked up to internet - it did not shut down once. Wireless is installed and this is how she uses it - could it be the rotor or could it be overheat


Answers :

Hi there.
It sounds like it is overheating.
I would recommend you buy a can of compressed air and give short bursts through the air vents and the CPU fan which will be located underneath the laptop, once you are happy that all the dust is out of the system try running the laptop again to see if it shuts down, If it doesn't then that will have been the problem.
Please keep me posted with the results.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
